A spirited afternoon's commitment saw the K&P girls seriously challenging league leaders,Guildford & Godalming,but,despite early hopes,found themselves pipped by just 3 points.With Epsom winning the other match,K&P are in 3rd place overall on countback.
Scores - Match - G&G 238/K&P 235/Bracknell 217/HHH 199/Croydon 145/HercWim 126/DMV 93 and overall it's G&G 14/599 from E&E 12/495,K&P 12/481,Reigate 12/421 & HHH 11/499. All to play for in the final regular-season round at Guildford on July 12th.
Caitlin Dimbleby(75 11.9) & Ellie Manhire(75 13.1) were again our Under 11 non-scoring reps. and look likely future prospects with much-improved performances over the short sprint.
In the U13s,Lauren Edwards(2A HJ 1.15),Katie Miller(with 2 2nds) & Layla & Mae Thompson(both scoring well as usual) constituted our 4-girl team.
The 5 U15s grabbed their share of points with hurdlers,Lucy Clacher & Sophie Peel prominent on the track and Eleanor van Klaveren in the field.
It was,however,our 7 U17s who claimed the majority of the spoils - Molly Renfer won all her 3 events(inc a comfortable 2.23.0 800);Emily McIlwain(LJ 4.38),Katja Schlerf(TJ 9.46PB - the best K&P performance of the day),Flo Penfold(Hammer 17.60) & debutante Sophie Peters(300 52.3) all claimed wins;whilst Francesca Currie & Chiamaka Ojechi provided excellent support.The 4 x 100 relay team were also winners.
