id730-Rosenheim League West M2 Walton May 21st 2008 Report

Written by DB   

Supporting only half of the events in a match is likely to leave a team up the proverbial creek without a paddle;the K&P Women were lucky the other teams were in the same boat;the Men had no such buoyancy.

With only 3 teams from the Western Division going on to the Mens Final this summer,it's a case of - "Can do better".Such results are unlikely to enamour team management.The Women,though,still head the challenge for the retention of their Western title.

On the Mens side,the sprinters found condusive conditions - our President,M45 Pat Logan,ran 11.7/23.8,times he needed for forthcoming Masters Interland International selection;Jason-Louis Bernard lowered his 200 best to a round 23.0;Adam Bellis & James Moroney both won over 400 in good 'training' mode;and we won a tight,nippy 4x200(1.34.0) with Draco Mkpa joining the latter three.Elsewhere,U17s Patrick Hillyer,William Trimble & Adam Wicks were effective and Ron Taylor(coming from Beckenham!) & Peter Wilkins covered the 3000 but the rest was non-existent.

On the distaff,Mary Iheke claimed a 12.9/58.9 double,the latter a near-PB and there were cameo performances elsewhere,but only 5 appeared.

Scores - Men: SMR 49,Walton 37,E&E 29,K&P 28(paltry!),BA 22 whilst the Women's gave K&P 24,Walton 22,SMR 19 & E&E 18. Overall,we lie 2nd on countback in the Mens and we lead the Womens.

Full results can be found on the Walton AC site - wwww.waltonac.co.uk - and on the NB at Kingsmeadow.
