I now have the results from the South of England Championships held over last weekend at Crystal Palace. The best performance came from Vicki Pellett in the under 15 girls hammer throw on Sunday. However she didn’t begin too well with her first 2 throws being no-throws. Fortunately her third throw was just about good enough to get her into the top 8 for another 3 throws. She then had 2 throws over 40 metres and her best throw of 42.02 metres gave her the bronze medal. So very well done to Vicki.
Abby Beswick and Lois Drummie were both in the under 17 ladies 80 metres hurdles on Sunday and they both came through the heats (Abby 11.98 seconds and Lois 12.31) to qualify for the final. And in the final Abby came fourth in 11.91 seconds with Lois 8th in 12.59 seconds. On the Saturday Lois had run in the 300 metres hurdles final and came 7TH in 47.72 seconds – which beat her own club record.
