Observations from Match 4
TM Clare Nelson's sad family bereavement gave Debbie Vernon the chance to guiide the team but numbers were very low and it was a struggle for the nine members present to keep our scoreboard ticking over.
Though there was much commitment,support and enthusiasm through an afternoon of contrasting overhead conditions,our rather meagre 55.5 points were mostly contributed by Camilla Thrush,Pippa Wingate and Lana Whatley(40 between them). Nicky Atkins(400,800,1500,3000),Natalie Sacre(800/1500) and Liz Richardson(1500/3000) scrapped all through and,indeed,Liz(12.28.1) and Natalie(6.07.8) produced Season's bests. There were cameo appearances from Gill English abd Rahannah Gillette-Vernon,whilst Odette McHenry could not actually make the throws 'teams',but successfully contrived to Non-score in BOTH hammer competitions! And we did enthusiastically field relay teams to which most of the above subscribed.
Camilla and Pippa won three events each,plus other appearances,and Lana took 3 useful 2nd places on the track.
There was also a sizeable tech/admin team from the club,too,for which we are grateful.
