K&P win at Kingsmeadow to top UAG YDL group

K&P’s U17 and U20 athletes put in a great performance at Kingsmeadow on 29th May to win the UAG YDL match and leave the team topping the league division South/West 1A by 3 points. If we can keep this going over the next two matches, K&P will be in the paper match with the winners of S/W 1B and N/E 1 for promotion to Southern Premier League 2. We have the athletes to compete at this level so we really hope to get a good turn-out for match 3 in Woking on 26th June. A big hand should also go to all those helping officiate on the day which made sure we got the full 55 officials points – something only 4 out of the 7 teams competing managed.

The final standings after all the events and the bonus points for officials were as shown in the table below:

The men’s team had 5 A string winners: Max Perez-Diaz (U20 200), Alex Parkinson (U20 110H), William Gwynne (U20 Pole Vault), Darren Meaklim (U20 400H), Aranan Wijayasooria (U20 2000 SC). Not to be outdone, the women had 7: Ellie Arnfield (U20 400H), Eleanor Bartle (U17 300H), Pippa Earley (U17 80H and Long Jump), Mica Powell (U20W 200 & 400), Laura Darcey (U20 High Lump). K&P also won the U20W 4x400 relay.

There were 40 PBs across all the events with several particularly notable performances. Pippa Earley put in AAA Grade 1/ESAA national standard performances in both U17W 80H and long jump. Mica Powell’s 400M time was a U17 AAA Grade 1 standard and good enough for a ESAA senior girls entry standard, even though Mica is still only an intermediate. Will Gwynne put in another great pole vault performance – 4.20M – AAA Grade 3 (U20M) and ESAA entry standard for senior boys. In addition, Rhianna Reynold’s triple jump was AAA Grade 2 (U17W), Jessica Westley’s hammer throw was AAA Grade 3 (U17W), Laura Darcey (U20W) and Leila Legris (U17W) high jumped grade 3 and grade 4 heights respectively, while Beckett Whiting’s 100H (U17M) was also Grade 4.

As ever, though, as well as these headline performances there were lots of tremendous efforts across a wide range of events all of which helped K&P get the points in the bag. So, many congratulations to all the athletes who competed, especially those who took time out from exams and revision.

As mentioned, our officials points were vital so a huge thank you to all who helped out: timekeeper Jonathon Bartle, track judges Colin Watts and Ros Parkinson, field judges Susanne Dietrich, Gill Broderick, Matt Broderick, Mary Dimbleby, Mark Reynolds, Susan Hobart, Natasha and Simon Whiting.

The team was:
U17 Women: Mica Powell, Sophie Dimbleby, Eleanor Bartle, Eleanor Church, Isabella Busa, Rhianna Reynolds, Pippa Earley, Amy Counihan, Eleanor McDonnell, Annabel Hobday, Leila Legris, Jessica Westley, Charlotte Josey.
U20 Women: Laura Darcey, Ellie Arnfield, Caitlin Dimbleby Petra Köne, Nadia Allen, Maya Magnay.
U17 Men: Zak Wort, Tiago Beltrao, Will Stapleton, Sam Shaw, Sol Harris-Woodfin, Charlie Heaton, Gabriel Lewis, George Chaplin, Beckett Whiting, Charlie Dugdale, Charlie Townend.
U20 Men: Max Perez-Diaz, Alex Parkinson, Aranan Wijayasooria, Chris Cecil, Harry Reynolds, Darren Meaklim, Alex Meaklim, William Gwynne, Leon Newell, Freddie Garnham, Souleyman Bah,
