An agreeable and benign little evening at Kingsmeadow welcomed the first five-team Rosenheim League West Division match,in combo with VAC. K&P numbered over 30 athletes,though the overall attendance did not do justice to the tasty chips available in the cafeteria.
The Mens match soon developed,as last year,into a 2-way contest between SMR & K&P,with the former prevailing in the end 50-47 and the others trailing.
Best marks,though not necessarily winning ones,came from Rob Smith(HT 40.19),Nick Owen(SP 14.93),Chris Hall(400 51.7) and Jason-Louis Bernard(200 23.6);it was good to see some of the large U17 turnout from the previous Sunday's NYAL match in handy action again particularly Matt Francis,Frank Johnson & Patrick Hillyer;and Ron Taylor & Peter 'Marathon Des Sables & London Marathon' Wilkins gallantly filled our usual achilles heel MD events .
On the distaff side,the other teams never got a look-in in our pursuit of our Trophy retention - Charlie Ambidge(200),Rachel Burbridge(1500),Katja Schlerf(TJ) & Camilla Thrush(DT/HT) all won,though the breakthrough performance came from Anna Schlerf,slashing her 400 pb from 65.4 to 63.8.
Next match is at Walton on May 21st - please make the effort to be with the team at Stompond Lane - events are on the NB at Kingsmeadow.
