SAL Match 5 - Dartford

This was always going to be a very tough match with the clubs being in four of the top seven places in the league. Unfortunately for Herts Phoenix several younger athletes were competing on the same day at the South of England under 17 Championships with others not being available due to injury or being away on holiday, however, there were some very good performances with several first places being won to gain useful points for the team. Lauren Thompson won the “A” string 100m and 400m Hurdles races and Long Jump and Laura Armorgie won “A” string High Jump and “B” string 100m Hurdles and Long Jump. Kara Peck and Abigail Griffiths won the “A” and “B” string Triple Jump event with Abigail setting a new personal best leap of 9.99 metres. After several years competing away from the track, Natasha Taylor made a welcome return to comfortably win the “A” string 3000 metres race and Alicia Found won the “B” string 1500 metres race. Eloise Meakins easily won the “A” string Javelin with a throw of 45.53 metres which also won her the Female Athlete of the Match Award. There were wins for Jason Kingwell in the Men’s “A” string Shot Putt and Hammer competitions, Simon Wake in the “B” string Shot Putt and Ross Armorgie in the “B” string High Jump The Match finished with a win for Dartford with 202 points, 2nd Havering 197, 3rd Croydon Harriers167 and 4th Herts Phoenix 151, which leaves the Club at the end of season league in eighth placeoverall and so will be competing in the same division next season.
