Peter Impett reports from SWL at Exeter.
In the final match at Exeter on Sunday 4th
September Wimborne AC were third and confirmed their third place overall
in the league. Compare this with last year when we were bumping along
at the bottom and you will see that great strides have been made this
The under-13 girls will have a trophy to collect as
they held on to top spot. It was, however, a less spectacular
performance than on other occasions with only Bethan Burley making the
top three with her 16.03 in the javelin. None of the under-13 boys made
the top three but there were some very solid performances. In the
under-15 girls Abbie Hine took third place in the 800m with 2.37.3 and
Charlotte Bourne was second in the 3000m in 12.42.4.

under-15 100m in 12.0 and the 200m in 25.1. Ryan Walbridge was second
in the 800m in 2.16.4 and Liam Winton third in the triple jump with

the discus with 25.31m and 28.3s in the 200m plus 4m80 in the long jump.
Matt Curtis hit a new personal best winning the high
jump on 1m75, Jack Snook was third with 1m60. Jack took precedence in
the long jump with a second-placed 5m65 to Matt’s third placed 5m24 and
Jack’s winning pole vault of 3.50m compared to Matt’s second-placed
