Wimborne a Good Third after a tough weekend’s competition

Peter Impett reports from the Wessex League on 15 June 2014

Wimborne took third place in the second Wessex League fixture of the season at the Kings Park stadium on Sunday 15 June 2014.  With some top athletes resting after their exertions in the Schools County Championships on Saturday it gave opportunities for some new faces to show what they could do.

The under 17 men scored very well with Ryan Webb just missing out on a league record in the high jump just shaving the bar at 2m01.  He put that behind him to jump a personal best 6m47 in the long jump backed up by Ross Crabbe’s maximum points in the B string with 5m65.  Jack Rees doubled the sprints with a 12:0 100m and a 24:0 200m in to a stiff-ish headwind.  Louis Coppard won the B string 200m in 24:6 and the 400m in 54:4.  Piers cleaned  up the shorter distances with a winning 2:08.4 in the 800m.  Jack Rees then bought the relay baton home in a club record 47:1 with help from Ryan Long, Ryan Webb and Louis Coppard. The previous record had been set in 2004.
