Despite the traffic chaos of the M25, M20 and A21 our
athletes enjoyed a successful day at the Inter Counties. The U20 men and
women became Champions in the 19 County match with the U15s coming second
meaning they just failed to retain the title they won twelve months ago. We
had eleven (11) winners and some seasonal bests and PB’s throw in.
Special mention should go to those who thanks to the
traffic (some taking over four hours to get there instead of under two)
arrived minutes before their event yet still produced the goods. Yes Asha
Root, Pablo Seema Rocha, Lara Atkinson and Korede Awe I am taking about you.
How could I not mention our double U20 winner Eloise
Harvey in the Long and Triple jumps. Dillon Claydon almost matched this by
winning the Discus but was second in the Shot for the U15s.
Thanks also to our two new Team Managers, Gillian
Barber and Steve Fury.
