The third match in the series was the best attended this season and the Club scored its highest points total so far. Unfortunately the weather along with the facilities were awful. Rain and more rain , no refreshments and no cover from the elements. The team, the officials and parents who were there all day deserved medals.
There were some good individual performances on the day dispite the weather. Helena and Sophie were first and second in the 75m. Sophie won the shot and Helana produced one of her best jumpsof the season to take second place in long jump. Hollie Weston-Jones did well to take second place in the high jump in thepouring rain.
Sam Mace won the shot and Curtis Court won the high jump equalling his pb. Nat running with an injured foot helped the boys take second place in the relay.
Lucy Weir took first place in the 100m. Marie Crosnier took second place in the discus and Gemma Clements did well to take second place in the shot. There was the rare sight of a Walton pole vaulter, Jessica Parkes winning the event with a new pb.
The only under 15 boy George Dixon won the 80m hurdles.
The under 17 boys again did well with Timothy Jackson winning the 400m on the track.
Matthew won the hammer and Curtis won the discus with a new pb.
The men also finished a good day winning both the relays.
