With the response holding up at just over 40,and with more U17 Men available,there was every chance we could get out of the bottom 5,but a 3rd place overall looks as if only a win,and with a large score,in the final match at Kingston in July will be enough. Scores:AFD 393.5/Channel Isles 325.5/K&P 294/Oxford 265. Full results on the Noticeboard and with the Team Managers.
There were good runs by Patrick Morales(100 12.0) & Oore Sokoya(200 24.0) in the U17 Men,as well as a reasonable 52.4 4 x 100 relay - still only 5 competed.
At U15 Boys level,Adam Wicks with two A wins(80H 13.4/HJ 1.45) excelled,with Callum Burke(JT 35.44) & the 4 x 100 team(51.6) also good winners. Richard Smeaton's narrow defeat in the 400,both 1st & 2nd given 55.1,was also highly commendable,as were Gordon Lester's PV success,Jake Budd's 25.4 200,Joe Johnson's 24.61 Hammer & Callum Burke's 27.52 DT. Twelve in action in this group.
George Wilkins(75H 13.6) & David Fitzpatrick(LJ 4.40) were our A winners,with a special mention for Jack Field's B win(16.0) over the hurdles,too.Eight were in attendance.
The U17 women scored well with Clarissa Brierley,Harriet Lester,Roseanne Mackay & Mary Iheke,all of whom were in action either at the SWL at Milton Keynes or at the ESAA Multis the day before,prominent but it was Anna Schlerf who stood out scoring a hattrick of wins. The 4 x 100 squad also won easily in 52.2 - seven here,too.
The U15s were thin with only 6 in action - Lucy Jones dominated with wins at 100(13.4) & LJ(4.59) though she fell foul of the judges in her favourite 70H. Just 6 attended.
And,in the U13s,Soracha Healy continued to dominate the sprints with successes over 75(10.5) & 150(20.4) whilst Lucy Clacher,another fine example of the ethic of team spirit,ran another fast 800(she ran fast at Milton Keynes the day before) and Victoria Douglas,Philippa Allcock & Alice Simmons all weighed in effectively.
