Thanks to everyone that came out on Saturday. Thanks especially to Lisa and
Catherine for coming out to officiate.
The Div 3 team was a little depleted but we came a very respectable 3rd, and
just a mere 3 1/2 points behind 2nd. And ahead of our friends QPH.
I¹m pleased to report we took 1st places in the A string 800m, A&B 1500m,
A&B 5k, A&B Steeplechase and B string 400m.
It was an interesting day for me to act as stand-in captain. Good news came
in the form of the pole vault being cancelled due to part of the host¹s
stand being broken. Bad news came in the form of a no-show and Nick
Barberis¹s head colliding with one of the high jump upstands. Lucky for Nick
(and the rest of us), new recruit, Manuel, drove down with his wife and son,
who kindly took Nick to hospital. The other downside of this was Manuel¹s
family missing him win the A string 800m in flying form. We¹re looking
forward to seeing more of Manuel in the future as he showed himself to be
both willing and versatile on the track (taking on the 800, 400, 200 and the
Simon Barrett, who came to do only the 5k, won that, along with the 1500m.
Eric Phillips, suffering from glandular fever, seemed to race most of the
events on the track and won the steeplechase as well as his string of the
1500 and 5k. And he ran a storming 1st leg in the 4x100m relay.
Roger Coyle came out for a half day and was willing to do anything, winning
the B 400m along the way.
Pete Gibbons came out with some solid performances (bizarrely) in the
Lippy and Ashley brought us 2nds and 3rds in the throws against what
seemed to be a monster hammer thrower from East Grinstead.
Ebrima, solid as ever, won his string in the 800m and steeplechase.
Last event of the day was a very exciting 4x400m relay. Manuel, led out with
a strong 1st leg taking us into 2nd at the first changeover; Simon pushed
out and overtook the leader on the back straight and giving me a 30m lead
over the East Grinstead team; I thought I could hear the East Grinstead
runner on the back straight so kept pushing round to hand Eric about an 80m
lead for the final leg. At 250m, Eric still had about 80m on the next
runner (Dan Medcalf from East Grinstead and winner of the 100 and 200m
races). At that point, Simon Barrett said to me ³he¹d do well to lose it
with that lead². In the next few seconds we saw Eric¹s lead diminish to
around 30m as he came on to the final straight. At this point, Serpie
spectators were on their feet in the stands shouting, and the rest of the
relay team was sweating at the finish line, screaming ourselves hoarse.
Eric must have noticed his lead shrinking as he pushed his was to win the
race (with an exhausted Dan about 3 meters behind him). Afterwards, Eric
commented: ³you didn¹t really think he was going to catch me, did you?² - to
which quite a few people replied ŒYES!¹ But he didn¹t.
Fantastic way to finish a great match.
