GIRLS RETAIN LILY B LEAGUE TITLE
After winning the league title for the first time in more than 20 years last year,the Kingston girls showed this was no fluke by remaining unbeaten this season. The deciding match at Walton on Saturday was a closely fought contest with Guildford,but in the end Kingston triumphed and won by more than 40 points.
There were more than 30 Personal Best performances on the day which highlights the quality and determination of the girls who competed. The outstanding performances on the day were those achieving AAA grade 1 performances – Rhianna Reynolds U13 HJ 1.40m and Sophie Dimbleby U13 Javelin 26.43m. In addition there were many other graded performances across all the age groups.
The match also resulted in 3 new club records: the U17 4x100m (51.1),Nicole Kendall,Lauren Edwards,Mae & Layla Thompson;the U17 300mhurdles (46.0)Mae Thompson and the U15 Hammer (26.06m) Jody Edwards.
The continued success of this team is due to their fantastic team spirit and willingness to give anything a try.
