With no recognised vaulters or throwers,the mens' team missed a real chance of consolidating 2nd in the league table,and eventually slipped well behind Croydon. With just the final match at Croydon,it will need much better support for Mike May if we are to get back into 2nd,behind leaders Epsom & Ewell. The women did much better,but again were reliant on the few who contested well and,in fact,reversed the mens' result by leap-frogging Croydon into 2nd overall. Match and overall scores can be found on the Results Menu.
Of the men,sprinters Pat Logan,David Curzon & Chuck Isetts were all on form;David Bell(1500) ran competitively into 3rd;and Graham Huntley competed relentlessly;but the few were up against it,though there was no shirking the tasks.
On the distaff side,Rachel Disley,as always,was resilience itself,winning the 1500 comfortably and then running an exciting final 800 leg in the medley,catching her Epsom opponent on the line after making up a good 10 metres in the home straight.Joan Trimble claimed a W50 double(100/400),Camilla Thrush got her customary wins at Javelin & Hammer with the TMS,Nicky & Nicky,keeping themselves busy throughout.
