The Southern Athletics League, Match 3 was the second home fixture of the season. It certainly turned out to be a much stronger performance than the previous two matches.
Our BAC athletes put in great effort in their individual events as well as filling other events for points. Some even stepped in at the last minute to fill events.
Everyone’s hard work paid off to secure an excellent 2nd place finish. This was a huge improvement on the last 2 matches and will hopefully give us the boost we need to continue as we’ve jumped two places from the bottom of the division.
Man of the Match Awards were given to five BAC athletes – this shows the class and high standard of performances on the day. They all won their events by a convincing margin and are named below:
Robert WOOLGAR Long Jump 6.54m
James GLYNN High Jump 1.90m
Poppaea BRAMWELL REEKS 1500m 4:35.8
Chloe BURROWS 200m 25.4
Olivia GALLOWAY (U23) Javelin 36.14m
A huge thank you to everyone who turned up to compete, officiate and support the SAL teams – it was another well hosted event!
The next match is on the 13th August in Peterborough and we need to take another strong team and fill as many events as we can.
It will be a long day but with a big turnout and a strong team, there’s a realistic prospect that we can get ourselves out of relegation over the last 2 matches!
If you are available and want to come and join the fight, get in touch with Adam Nicholass (Men’s Team) or Jemma Bates (Woman’s Team). There will be a free coach from Kings Park to Peterborough, as well as plenty of fun and banter along the way and on the day.
