In the first South West Athletics League match of the season
Wimborne pushed their way to second place in Division 2 after a long
trip to Par in
Cornwall and some mixed and squally weather. Unable to dislodge home
club Newquay/Par from top spot Wimborne put in some very creditable
performances to leave them in a good position to seek promotion back to
Ellie White smashed the club’s hammer record for under-17s
adding 15 metres to give 39m 57 and Tom Bourne was similarly impressive
in cutting the under-15s 3000 metre record to 9:49.7.
The under 13 boys ruled the roost with a good 1m45 win from
Jack Ayton in the high jump and a 4m56 win for Ben Holland in the long
jump. Erin Thickett won the 100 metres for under-13s and was second in
the long jump with 4m04. Another storming 800m by Abbie Lovering 2.38.8
failed to dislodge the event winner but was still great to watch.
Grace Copeland showed her class with a 2:21.0 in the
under-15’s 800m bringing Lucy Ballam in behind her on 2:31.5. Charlotte
Ayton won the girls under-15 long jump with 4m75. Harrison Foot won the
boys under-15s high jump with 1m45. Pippa Hine’s winning 13:2 in the
100m and 26:9 in the 200m showed the value of moving her in to a higher
age group to compete as an under-17.
