Herts Phoenix competed in their first track and field competition of the outdoor season at Lee Valley on Saturday 2nd April and had an excellent result.
There were 8 teams contesting the Trophy in each of 2 age groups. The Herts Phoenix senior team came 2nd and the U15 team came third in their respective age groups.
Many of the senior athletes who competed were still very much in winter training rather than competition ready which made the result all the more impressive. There were many strong individual performances and everyone worked very hard to achieve the final team result.
There were double wins in the A & B strings in the 400m hurdles for Stephanie Williams in a time of 63.63 and Zoe Benton (U20 athlete) 67.18. In the javelin for Eloise Meakins with a throw of 42.81m and Gemma Armorgie with 23.29m and in the high jump for Laura Armorgie (U20 athlete) with a leap of 1.73m and Louise Reilly (U17 athlete) with 1.60m.
Personal bests were achieved by Georgina Anderson in the 200m in a time of 26.51, Zoe Benton 400m hurdles 67.18 & Louise Reilly 400m 62.6.
Well done girls!
