The senior team had a fantastic day at the 2nd track and field meeting at Wyndley on Sunday. We finished in first place with our athletes setting five new divisional records:
- 100m – Nicholas Pryce 10.8
- 200m – Nicholas Pryce 22.1
- Discus – Kevin Brown 48.20m
- 4x100m Relay – 45.0 ( Luke Fleming, Nicholas Pryce, Adam Barnes and Nicholas Mwebe)
- 3000m Megan McBrien – 10.30.0
Nicholas Pryce’s 100m time is also a new club record, taking over James Simmons record set in 1989. A video of the run is available on our FLICKR page here.
The 4x400m relays were another highlight with the women winning by the length of the home straight and the men also having a great victory. Nicholas Pryces’s 400m split was recorded by Ruth Dobbins to be 47.1 (WOW!).
Well done to Kane Howitt, Alister Breuns, Andrea Deathridge, Clive Hackforth, Marcus Smedley, Tony Hinchley, Nicholas Mbewe, Madeleine Stearn, Natassja Longstaff, Miranda Stoddart and Charlotte Last who all performed exceptionally on their first appearances for the senior athletics team.
Thanks also to the many people who helped out behind the scenes to make it such a successful event (some who were helping to set up from 8am).
The next meeting is on 1 July at Burton. Let’s have a great turnout and see if we can get another team victory!
