Wimborne Athletics Club returned to South West League action on Sunday for the first time since they won the Championship in 2019. The League, which has been split in half to reflect a need to reduce travel in the Covid outbreak, was a much quieter six team match at Yeovil. A tropical downpour saw the last relay events of the day run in near ankle deep water.
Top performances came from Finlay Carvell 13.3 in the under 13 100 metres, Harry Ryan 12.4 in the under 13 hurdles and Freya Blundell 12.9 in the under 15s 100 metres. Isla O’ Connor 5.06.5 and India West 5.23.3 scored a one two in the under 15s 1500. India also won the long jump with 4m65. There were wins also for Curtis Ormerod Taylor in the senior men’s 100 11.2, Ben Martin in the senior men’s steeplechase 7.55.3, Max Chater in the under 15 hurdles 14.5, Charlie Cleall 28.5 in the under 13 200 metres, Eva Welstead 12.8 in the under 15 hurdles and Toby Hiller 6.16 metres in the senior men’s long jump.
