Molly Renfer is now a definite selection for Trevor Raggett's Surrey Under 17 Women's squad for the Counties Athletic Union Inter County CC Champs in Birmingham on March 13th.All hail!

Late January result - David Greenfield ran into 209th place/617 in 77m30 in the Fred Hughes 10k in St Albans on 24th January.

3rd - Frankfurt,GER - Chris Hall(Konstanz) duly raced in the German Unis Champs,winning his 200 in 23.02(no finals,just on times) and clocked 7.29 over 60m.

6th - Bushy Park TT - U15 Phillip Bearman was an useful 95th(21.20).

6th - Inter County Schools,Reigate - Molly Renfer confirmed her very good form,placing 7th(15.33)and 3rd scorer,helping Surrey to the team win,whilst Phillip Bearman(Surrey) was in action for a 2nd time,placing 60th(15.26)in the Junior Boys race.

6th - BUCS Champs,Stirling - Luke Caldwell(Oxford/DMV/HCA) was a fine 43rd in the Mens contest at the British Unis Champs in Scotland,whilst Tom Beedell(Roehampton/Chiltern) was 78th and Richard Mathie(Imperial) took 139th - 228 completed.

7th - Kent Indoor Champs,Lee Valley - Bilen Ahmet again monopolised proceedings - winning several medals,his best marks were 3.70 PV,1.70 HJ,8.00 60,10.39 60H,11.07 TJ & 10.08 SP.

27th - McCain Indoor Challenge at Lee Valley - Now resident in N London,Dominique Blaize would have been pleased to return to competition,for NL Lions,placing 3rd over 200 in 24.92 & 6th in the SP(11.97). Also in action,for Cardiff Dragons was David Cook who jumped 6.94 for 5th,a mark he would likely regard as below par.
