Har­ri­ers boost their pro­mo­tion prospects

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Classifieds -

NENE Val­ley Har­ri­ers moved a step closer to reach­ing the Na­tional Young Ath­letes League Mid­lands Premier North Di­vi­sion with a com­pre­hen­sive vic­tory at the Em­bank­ment Track on Sun­day.

The top three teams in the di­vi­sion clashed but it was the city club who came out on top with sev­eral in­di­vid­u­als pro­duc­ing out­stand­ing dis­plays.

Rugby in­ter­na­tional Harry Wells broke 60m for the first time when im­prov­ing his Un­der 17 club record in the ham­mer and he also set a per­sonal best to win the shot, but he had to set­tle for sec­ond in the dis­cus.

In the same age group Ewan Jones pro­duced a pair of per­sonal bests to record a sprint dou­ble and he also won the 100m hur­dles for good mea­sure.

Alex Hamp­son, who en­joyed an ex­cel­lent cross-coun­try cam­paign dur­ing the win­ter, has taken that form onto the track and took more than two sec­onds off Lloyd Kemp­son’s four year-old club record when win­ning the Un­der 13 boys 1500m. Hamp­son’s brother Ben was also in fine form to win the Un­der 17 men’s 800m in a per­sonal best.

Emily Maltby ex­tended her un­beaten long jump record for 2010 with a per­sonal best of 4.74m and Kim Co­ley’s 1998 Un­der 17 women’s club record of 4.84m could well go be­fore the end of the year. Maltby also won the 200m with a per­sonal best of 26.4. Cara Grys recorded two wins in the same age group as well as a per­sonal best when fin­ish­ing sec­ond in the 100m.

In the Un­der 15 age group, Lily Hughes com­pleted a pleas­ing week­end with a sprint dou­ble. Hav­ing equalled her club 200m record at the Anglian Schools a day ear­lier, Hughes blasted to a per­sonal best in the 100m.

In the same age group, Jenna Mo­han - younger sis­ter of Bri­tish ju­nior in­ter­na­tional Robert - won three events in the throws while Emma Hornsby equalled her club record when win­ning the 75m hur­dles.

Ralph Of­fer made a win­ning de­but for the club when eas­ily win­ning the Un­der 15 boys javelin.
