Womens’ SCVAC – Match Three

A much better evening than the last! Highlight, seeing Cara win the W35 800m with a sensible race and storming lead at the end. Cara also ran a leg of the 4 x 100m and remained in one piece at the end. If ever there was a runner more determined to come back and reclaim the points she lost at the last match it's Cara. Since pulling her calf on the warm up for the 1500m only a few weeks ago, Cara has been undergoing painful rehab treatment so she can compete at this match for the club – it seemed worth it.

Without any sprinters Emily's 100m from behind looked though they all came through the line together. In true long distance style, Emily didn't get the best of starts and was just getting going when it was all over, her 800m later was more her distance even though that's too short also. Emily's Javelin was her best event tonight with both a win and PB, wonder what she could do if she actually had some practice!

Other PBs on the night, two for Rose Baker, 800m from 3:07 down to 3:01, 100m 18.2 down to 17.8. Maria MacDonald PBs came in the Shot Putt, Cara set a PB in the shot as first time. It's defiantly on the card to get these ladies some a few coaching sessions! Marlow Hadler held the field team together, with a win in the W60s shot put and dropping down to the W50s age group in the Javelin.

Over all we are in 4th positon, we really need to move up to 3rd to avoid being in division 2 next year, come on you Cambridge Harriers Girls, lets pull up! Any help would be greatly appreciated, Hopefully for the next match we will have Lisa and Joanne back, we might even see Xanine!

Next Match also at Bromley, Friday 10th June. Events; 200m, 1500m, 2000walk, 4 x 400m relay, Triple Jump, High Jump, Hammer – who wants to come out and play?
