Harriet Lester highlights the season's opener.
On Saturday 25th April, the 2009 Southern Womens’ season kicked off down at Kingsmeadow with an excellent turn out of 14 athletes over a variety of age groups. I send a huge thanks to the new girls who had never competed before;your appearance was welcomed by the team hugely! If turn out continues, Kingston are sure to have a great season, staying on par with a respectable 71 points earned with most events filled!
With impressive performances in the 800m by Gaby Miles and in the Javelin by Rahannah Gillette–Vernon who topped her pb with a giant throw just short of 30metres. Well done(especially in the pole vault attempt)!! Not to mention other great successes throughout the day.
Also, a great big thank you to Egho, who kindly stepped in to run a 200 metres at the last minute, but had an accident; get well soon Egho and we hope it hasn’t put you off competing in the future!
With a huge thank you to all the athletes and officials who turned out to support Kingston and Poly;it is important this continues throughout the season in order for us to move up ranks.
I look forward to seeing you all on Saturday 30th May in Bromley!!
