SCVAC Sutcliffe Park

SCVAC – Sutcliffe Park – 24th April 2012


Another T&F season began for the stalwarts of the Invicta team at Sutcliffe Park. A warm and pleasant evening for our 8 athletes, who had ventured to the western extremes of the county! The women’s team was well represented and did themselves proud. In the W35A 400m Jackie Rendell placed 3rd (104.9). In the same age group at 3k, Sharon Hawkins was 2nd in the A race (11.12.0) and Sue Rogers 3rd in the B events (14.41.1). Lea Burnett was 2nd in the W35 Hammer (7.44m) and demonstrated that with a little coaching and training at the event she can expect to see considerable improvement. The Team placed 4th overall.

Rob Whittaker (although now an M50), competed in the M35A 400m and gained 4th (66.7) and in the same age group at 3kA event, he was 5th (10.37.8). Peter Bowell placed 2nd in the M35 B race (11.06.6). In the M50 age group Richard Hudson was 4th in both the 3k (13.48.0) and 400m (74.3). John Gilbert won the M50 hammer (24.66m) and in his own age group M60 came 2nd in the triple jump (6.24m) and 3rd in the 400m (97.0). The team finished 4th overall among the 6 competing clubs in their division.

A very encouraging start to the season. Our next fixture is at our own Canterbury track on Monday 14th May. Let’s get our strongest possible teams out and make “Home Match Advantage” really count. We also need lots of helpers and supporters to be there as well.

 

Yours in sport
