Well done everybody! In a far better supported Lily B Final than last year from all clubs,Team Manager John Simmons gathered about our best turnout this summer in all fixtures featuring the three main age groups;and he was able to fill every string available,matching our 3rd place of last year but with over 120 pts more.

In the sprints,there were good performances across the age groups - U11 Anna Hage was clearly the fastest of some 30 opponents at 75/150 with 11.6/23.4;U13 Soracha Healy won the 100(14.0) and was just edged at 200(29.3);at U15,Charlie Ambidge shone with 2nd twice(100 13.6/200 27.7);and at U17,Mary Iheke took both 200&300,not unusually,with 25.9(=PB) and 41.2.
The middle distances are our achilles heel at all levels,male & female,but there was a useful 800 PB from U13 Jessica Tomlinson(2.56.6);the hurdles ARE more our forte with Victoria Douglas & Lucy Clacher at U13,and,of course,the celebrated Mlles Mackay & Lester at U17,all of whom were to the fore.
In the jumps,U15 newcomers Charlie Ambidge(LJ 4.53) & Emily McIlwain(HJ 1.40) impressed whilst in the throws, U13 Eleanor van Klaveren(JT 22.81 etc) improves rapidly,Natalie Ellis(U15 DT) again scored well at DT, & Amy Simmons & Laura Luxon achieved PBs in the U17 Hammer,to the delight of coach Tony Cook.
K&P winners were U13 100 Soracha Healy and,in the U17s,the said Amy & Laura(twice) plus our 8th-ranked-in-the-UK-over-300m Mary Iheke(twice). Not too many over 36 events, each with A&B strings,but just proves we do have some depth and some commitment from time to time.
A good day's work!
