04/08/2019  East Anglian League, Peterborough  details

Contesting the final regular season East Anglian League meet this time at Peterborough, Huntingdonshire AC put in a strong team performance to finish 2nd overall behind Norwich AC with many athletes putting in standout performances.  In the Under 17 Men's competition, Thomas Smith claimed a hat-trick of A string throwing victories in the shot putt (11.61m), discus (34.85m) and hammer throw (36.53m).  In the same age group, our sprinters picked up a clean sweep.  In the 100m A race, Jason Bogle ran a personal best 11.4 secs to take the win, while Brandon Alves won the B string race in 11.9 secs.  Jason followed up with a win in the A string 200m (23.6 secs) with Brandon duly taking first in the B race with a personal best 23.8 secs.  Contesting the Under 15 Girls sprints, similar to Jason, Lizzy Harrison claimed victory in both A string sprints, running the 100m in 13.0 secs and the 200m in 26.8secs.  Backing Lizzy up in the 100m, Sophie Bambridge won the B race in 13.7 secs.  Earlier, Sophie won the A string long jump with a best-ever 4.71m.  She is jumping half a metre further than in 2018.  Our Senior Women were low on numbers but what they lacked in quantity, they made up with quality.  In the 400m A race, Franki Riley attacked from the start and held on well to win with 60.5 secs, taking half a second off her best.  She later ran 27.3 secs for the third time this year to equal her personal best.   On the comeback trail, Ella Blake comfortably won the A string 800m with 2:25.5, her fastest time for four years.  Out in the field, Jo Abel placed first in the A string triple jump with 9.55m.  In the Under 13 Boys 800m, Tom Waterworth front-ran the whole way to take the win in 2:30.1 with Kieran Still winning the B race with 2:37.7.  Also in the Under 13 Boys, newcomer Max Jackson won the A string shot putt with 9.00m.  This placed him six feet ahead of his nearest rival and puts him at 45th in the national rankings.  In the same age bracket, Toby Carroll finished 1st equal in the A string high jump and was further rewarded with a personal best in the 75m hurdles when placing 3rd with 15.8 secs.  In the Under 17 Women's 800m A race, Ella Robinson was fully 20 metres behind her Norwich rival with 200 metres to go.  However, Ella held her form superbly as her opponent began to falter, overtaking the Norwich athlete in the last few metres to win by 0.2 secs with 2:23.1.  In the Under 13 Girls events, Hollie Baynes won the A string discus with 15.43m, a tantalising 3 cms from her best.  Hollie did achieve a personal best when placing 2nd in the A string shot putt with 5.46m.  Next stop, the Final in Bury St Edmunds on 8th September.
