This was our first invite to this long-standing North London Trophies meeting and,though we were decidedly thin particularly at Under 15 and the wind was aggressive,the performances suggested we could make the step up from Beta to Alpha next year.Full results on Noticebaord at Kingsmeadow.
In the Senior sprints,Dominique Blaize(12.74) & Mary Iheke(13.28) both won over 100;Mary(27.49) & Roseanne Mackay(27.69) scored well at 200(both sprints were into the teeth of the strong wind);Dominique also won the SP at 10.95;Harriet Lester(78.72) & Roseanne Mackay(81.72) successfully contested their first-ever 400 hurdles;Dominique & Harriet were both 2nd over 100 hurdles where winds of between 2.5 & 4.7 AGAINST made a mockery of stride patterns;Sasha Gordon & Amy Simmons foraged to good effect but with only 6 athletes to choose from,we were off the pace teamwise - we were 6th of 8 in the senior events,but we did complete the day in fine style by taking the 4 x 100 in a nippy 51.16(Harriet,Mary,Roseanne,Dominique).
Only Lucy Clacher & Saara Morro made it to the line at Under 15 - Lucy's 2.49.50 800 shone and she's still Under 13. The combined points totals gave a final scoreline of - Colchester 332/HHH 317/Thurrock 277/TVH 200.5/VP&TH 195.5/Loughton 175.5/K&P 148.5/London Heathside 35.
