There was a turnaround in the fortunes of our Men & Women - the former,despite no Pole Vaulter,slipped past St Marys Richmond to clinch a first win and now trail SMR by 1 League point at the midway stage of the summer. In contrast,Debbie & Sasha found bodies scarce and were pushed back into 4th; we now slip behind SMR,also by 1 league point.
Full results on the NB at Kingsmeadow shortly.
A nippy 15.0 110 Hurdles win from Matt Field set the tone for the K&P Men at Ewell,a lead which was enhanced yet again by a lively treble from Ron Taylor,who took both the 800/1500,as well as gathering points in the 3000,all within 90 minutes. Tom Butcher,Justin Green and James Moroney were clear victors in the shorter track events,whilst U20 Patrick Hillyer took the Triple Jump,Rob Smith acquired 2nd in the Hammer and we cantered the 4 x 200.
In the Non-Scoring events,sprinters Jason Bernard,Draco Mkpa & Patrick Hillyer looked sharp,as did our President,who was also proud witness to 2 PBs from son,Nick.
The Ladies were delighted to see Mary Iheke dominate the 200; Liz Richardson,Natasha Cook(pb 400) & Nicky Atkins all posted improved 2009 marks but we were found wanting for a change.
