May 2nd, 2009, Coventry
Despite a great team spirit and lots of people weighing in with multi-events we came 6th. We knew it would be difficult with Birchfield, Coventry nd Nottingham having their British League athletes available, the clash with BUSA and the Young Athletes League as well as a veritable epidemic of achilles tendonitis! Looking at the results, if we can get a full team out for the remaining 3 matches, and with the others not able to field their British League athletes we should be able to aiming for 2nd next time. We beat Birchfield (2nd this time) twice last year.
Andrea Lock got us of to a good start winning the PV and Cameron Walker-Shepherd and Tony Hillier were first A and B respectively. Kate Goodhead won the 3K and later posted a fast time in the 1500m, as well picking up some points in the 800m.
Thank you to all who competed, and to our officials. Next match Rugby Sunday June 7th. Please let me know your availability ASAP for the match and your preferred event.
