Round Three of the South West Athletics League East Division produced some fine performances at Yeovil on 29th August. Another second place virtually ensures that the club will be in second place after the final match at the end of September.
Star turns came from the horizontal jumps with Under 17 Lauren Hill producing an uncontested 10m70 in the triple jump before she heads for Loughborough to represent the South West in the UK School Games. Harry Woods was in a similar vein of form in a much more competitive under 15s long jump with a winning 5m60 a new personal best. Toby Hiller won the senior men’s event with 6m36.
Hurdlers Eva Welstead under 15 12.69 and Maria Jeffery under 13 12.81 weighed in with full points as did Freya Blundell 13.00 in the under 15 100 metres and Charlie Cleall 28.23 in the under 13 200. India West and Lucy Lucas were only separated in the high jump on countback on 1m45. Veterans Dave Pearson 3m45 in the pole vault and Duncan Hiller 22m02 in the discus can be pleased with their winning contributions as can siblings Harry Jones 2m45 in the under 15 pole vault and Olivia Jones 6m53 in the under 13 girls shot.
