Second T&F meeting Tonbridge 31 May 2024

The men finished 2nd to stay 2nd overall and the ladies 4th to stay 4th overall.   All done with the skipper holidaying in the Alps - thanks Simon P for managing the team on the night.

Some great performances with the women romping home in the 4 x 100m relay - well done Tracey, Delia, Rachel and Sarah! - the men second in the 4 x 100m relay (Andrew, James, Steve and Simon H), with individual performances including 1st for Rachel in the 200m W35B and 2nd places for Andrew (200m M35B), James (1,500m M35B), Steve (200m and High Jump M60) and Ro (1,500m W50).  Plus a few PB's thrown in.

On to Dartford!

First T&F meeting Norman Park 17 May 2024

After three taster sessions it was time to start the SCVAC T&F season at Norman Park on 17 May.  With a brilliant BVAC crowd cheering the team on to some top performances, the men and women both finished second on the night, a great start to the division 2 season for both teams.  

Of the 13 athletes competing, 4 were making their debuts and did not disappoint.  Steve Moss leapt to a very impressive first in the 60+ long jump after earlier destroying the competition in his 400m heat, whilst Andrew Cooper was just pipped for a win on the line in his 400m (he promised to do better next time!).  Not to be outdone, Delia Beddis and marathon queen Ro Kibblewhite then both nailed 2nd place in their age group 3,000m, with Delia taking out the Central Park athlete in the last 20m for a perfectly measured run.  

Some equally impressive performances from the more “seasoned” athletes, with uber athlete Simon Horler winning the pole vault and collecting a 2nd and two 3rd’s in the 400m, 3,000m and discus; James Willingham and Tim Sowter each securing 2nd in the 3,000m and 400m respectively; Jonathan Wilson throwing his way to 2nd in the discus in the late evening gloom; Tracey Simmons taking two 2nd’s in the triple jump and discus; Shirley Wheeler 2nd in the 50+ discus; and Anne Unseld two 3rds in the 60+ 400m and discus (at the age of 75!).  Rachel Perry and Gavin Kitchingham completed the points scoring despite both coming back from illness and injury.  And of course Tony Unseld and Jason Short performed heroics with the rake in the jump pits!
