An excellent turnout for our first Southern County Veterans Athletic Club (SCVAC) league match at Kingsmeadow on Monday 18th May. Despite a very chilly evening ten women enjoyed themselves running, throwing & jumping.
As a team we filled most of the events (except all the over 60 age group as we haven’t enough of this age group) to finish 2nd to Epsom & Ewell (they have loads of over 60’s). The high light of the evening was the 4 x 100m relay (Joan Trimble, Clare Nelson, Susanne Dietrich & Nicki Murphy) which we won 63.9 to Epsom & Ewell 65.4 seconds.
The women who competed were: Susanne Dietrich, Clare Nelson, Joan Trimble, Liz Richardson, Avelline Deighton, Camilla Thrush, Caroline Jeffcote, Nicki Murphy, Gill Broderick & Nicky Atkins.
The next meeting will be Monday 15th June at Ewell Court
