Unfortunately our 3rd match, 10th June, at Walton Athletic Hub was cancelled due to very heavy rain.

 

The ladies 4th and final match was on 8th July at Croydon Sports Arena where a small team of K&P athletes competed to finish 3rd place to Epsom and Ewell Harriers and Wimbledon Hercules.

 

Every member of the team worked hard to bring in the points competing in several events:

 

Nicky Atkins: 100m, 2000m walk, 400m, 1 mile, 100m relay

Caroline Jeffcote: 100m, 1 mile

Susanne Dietrich: 100m, 400m, 100m relay, Discus, Triple Jump, Javelin

Liz Richardson: 2000m walk, 400m, 1 mile, 100m relay, High Jump

Nicki Murphy: 100m relay, Discus, Triple jump, Javelin

 

Sadly Nicki Murphy missed out on running the 400m and jumping in the high jump due to the over running of another field event.

 

Liz and Nicky walked in the 2000m walk and could have crossed the line hand in hand as we were both awarded the same time!

 

After the three matches I also believe that we finished 3rd overall but I haven’t received any information confirming this.

 

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the athletes who ran, walked, threw and jumped and to all the officials and volunteers who made the SCVAC possible.
