Saturday 6 & Sunday 7 May 2017

British Athletics League, Yeovil

We were 7th on Saturday just two points behind Havering after they pipped us by one place in the last few metres of the 4x400 relay. This puts us in the relegation zone. We missed a few key guys on the day and the bus arriving late due to a M3 closure didn't help us.

Our best event was the 3000m, our only A and B string win, where Jack Goodwin 8:42.17 and John Eves 8:43.63 left all of the opposition well in their wake. Josh Lunn won 3000m steeplechase in a PB 9:25.94 and was backed up well by Craig Emmerson 10:56.99.  

In the Pole Vault Frankie Johnson 4.40m was 2nd in the A  & Tyler Seager won the B string with 4.00m. In the Javelin Robson Angell was 3rd a PB of 51.51 & Marcio Fernades won the B 49.29. Jean Mozobo was 2nd in the long jump despite the late arrival of the minibus. There were PBs for Kwame Morris 11.39 in the 100, Tom Powell 4:12.28 in the 1500 and Aedan Slack 42.72 in the hammer. Aedan, HCA from Cambridge, was one of the hardest working athletes of the day being out in the centre of the field for most of the match taking A string 6th in shot, discus and hammer.  Richard Phelan, HCA from Huntingdon, stepped in at the last minute to cover the horizontal jumps.

Results on Power of 10.
