The senior athletics team kicked off the season on Saturday with a match at Leamington. Despite having a greatly depleted team there were some fantastic individual performances. Nicholas Pryce won the 100m and 200m in style, whilst there were also victories for Kevin Brown in the discus and Nick Corker in the 2000m steeplechase.
There were PBs for Luke Flemming (200m, 400m and long jump), Stuart McCaw (400m and high jump), Kane Howitt (triple jump), Paul Davey (800m), Vikram Balachandar (1500m), Russell Simpson (2000m steeplechase) and Janice Pryce (javelin). Meanwhile, John Topliss showed why he is known as the Tornado with a fantasic throw in the discus
For the women Megan, Charmaine, Janice and Fiona (with a cameo performance from Hannah Jennings) worked tirelessly, competing in multiple events to pick up lots of points.
The day ended with a fantastic victory for the men’s 4x400m team (Luke, Stuart, Fred and Nicholas).
Many thanks to our officials – Jane, Linda, Katie and Hannah.
