Unfortunately our 3rd match, 10th June, at Walton Athletic Hub was cancelled due to very heavy rain.
The ladies 4th and final match was on 8th July at Croydon Sports Arena where a small team of K&P athletes competed to finish 3rd place to Epsom and Ewell Harriers and Wimbledon Hercules.
Every member of the team worked hard to bring in the points competing in several events:
Nicky Atkins: 100m, 2000m walk, 400m, 1 mile, 100m relay
Caroline Jeffcote: 100m, 1 mile
Susanne Dietrich: 100m, 400m, 100m relay, Discus, Triple Jump, Javelin
Liz Richardson: 2000m walk, 400m, 1 mile, 100m relay, High Jump
Nicki Murphy: 100m relay, Discus, Triple jump, Javelin
Sadly Nicki Murphy missed out on running the 400m and jumping in the high jump due to the over running of another field event.
Liz and Nicky walked in the 2000m walk and could have crossed the line hand in hand as we were both awarded the same time!
After the three matches I also believe that we finished 3rd overall but I haven’t received any information confirming this.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the athletes who ran, walked, threw and jumped and to all the officials and volunteers who made the SCVAC possible.
We are one of the biggest and friendliest athletics clubs in London and compete across a huge array of leagues, events and championships and have athletes of literally all standards and ages and across all events.
Whether you are an 8 year old novice, a senior international or a “more mature” athlete looking to get back into the sport – we can help you achieve your goals.
We cater for runners, jumpers, throwers and multi-eventers on the track, in the field, on the roads or over the country and are based at Kingsmeadow in Kingston-upon-Thames (KT1 3PB). We'll be very happy to help you with your sport – so please just get in touch and we'll do all we can to assist.
