Grace Copeland breaks 800m record at Oxford – 30 June 2013

Peter Impett reports from Wessex Young Athletes League

Wimborne Athletic Club got caught in the crossfire of a match which had three of the league’s big hitters in contention for the championship. Weakened by absence and injury, our athletes still put in some good individual performances.

In the Quadkids competition for the under-11s Erin Thickett put in the fastest 75 metre time and was third overall in the girls’ event.

In the mainstream competition Grace Copeland pulled out all the stops to win the under 13 800 in 2.26.9 and showed that she is more than a one trick pony by securing second place in the javelin with 19m59.  Grace’s 800m bettered the club record for and under-13 girl , ste by Amanda Bailey way back in 2001. Becca May was the other under-13 winner with a 1m35 high jump.  At under-15 level Kelly Snook won the high jump with 1m50.  Bethan Burley won the hurdles with 12.57s and was second in the javelin with 24m90.  She must have been hoping for better from her shot put, at 9.79 a little down on her personal best.  Pippa Hine is showing a welcome return to form with a second-placed 13.61 in the 100m and 28.43 in the 200.  Jess May won the B-string javelin with 17m12.

Liam Murphy-Parry 5.00.70 and Elliott Symes 5.12.59 were second and third in the under-13 boys 1500m.  Elliott was second in the shot with 6m68.  The under-15 boys repeated the under-13s scoring in the 1500 with Piers Copeland second 4.32.06 and Joe Miles third with 4.37.33.  Ross Crabbe won the long jump with 5m18.  Louis Coppard was second in the 400 on 55.00 and Fraser Read won the B-string on 55.53 at under-17 level.  Ryan Webb increased his personal best to 1m 85 in the high jump to take second place.
