Mission Accomplished – South West League – 11 May 2014

Peter Impett reports from Par.

This 800m race brought four new PBs.
Left to right: Jess Bourne, Bethanie Kingswell-Farr, Fern Morrison and Abbie Lovering.

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 Division 1.

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.
