Meeting conditions

Cold with sunny spells and showers


The first match of the 2013 Southern Athletics League was held at Woodside Stadium
in Watford on Saturday 27th April. Our team competed against Watford Harriers,
Highgate Harriers and Woodford and we had to face to usual, never-too-easy challenge
to put a team together the week after the London marathon. 27 Serpies made their way
to the match and it was great to see many new faces making their debut with our team
alongside our regulars and a couple of Serpies coming back to track after few years

Our team started the day well with the first field events: 6 points in the men's HJ
(Will Sharp, one of our newbies, and myself), Alex Malzer and Daniel De Palol with 5
points in the SP and Mary Davies and Stef Vaatz both winning their hammer strings.
The first track events brought also good points to our booty: 14 points from 400Hds
(Tolli Hickes and Stef, Richard Taylor and myself), 14 from the 800m (Helen Palmer,
just one second over the club record, Lisa Pettit, Andy Reeves and Will S) and 10
from the 100m (Natasha Sheel, Maureen Seguin and Roberto Filannino, all at their
debut with us, and Richard).
Meanwhile Ilona was 2nd in the LJ (4 points on her T&F debut), and so were our
hammer throwers (Danny McIntosh and Tony McGahan). Will S and Richard had a good day
in the LJ getting 6 points for our team, whereas Tolli (who also broke a 20-year-old
club record) and Mary were as consistent as usual in the SP (6 points).

Back on the track, we scored 11 points in the 400m (Mary Egundebi, Ilona, Pau and
Roberto); worth mentioning that Laura, not yet able to compete for us due to EA
bureaucracy, run as non-scorer and won comfortably string B (and so did later on in
the 200m). We look forward to have her on board soon! The 3000m was an internal
affair between Vic Crawford and Sarah Pemberton, who easily won both strings (10
points) whereas Mary and Tolli managed two second places in the javelin (8).Tony and
I got 10 points in the PV (and Will S was non scorer...yes, you read correctly, 3
Serpies in the PV) and 3 points from Danny and Alex in the JT.
The 5000m race was very competitive, with the winner getting home in 15:30: Will
Green was third and Daniel second (7 points from them). In the 110Hds Andy and
debutant Will S (who finished the race without a shoe) were both second, whereas 10
points came from the 200m (Mary, Natasha, Roberto and Richard). We realised at this
point that the fight for second was tight, with our team and Watford keeping
swapping position and always within few points from each other.
In the meantime, while the sun got back shining over the track, Vic Crawford and
Natasha got 7 points in the TJ, 8 points came from the DT (Tolli and Mary), whereas
the men got 5 in the TJ (Will S and Richard) and 5 in the DT (Tony and Alex).
The 1500m had a great run from Pau and Daniel (5 points), whereas our ladies managed
9 with Helen and Vic Carter. In the men's 2000S/C Andy and I scored 8 points and our
two 4x100 teams were both third. The women 1500S/C saw both Vic Carter (who also
claimed back the Serpies club record) and Sarah coming second. The day was over as
usual with the 4x400 relays, where we run a second (women) and a third (men).
We also had some non-scorers who performed very well: Vic Crawford in the 200m, Lisa
(1500m), James Quinn (5000m) and Alex Malzer in the throws where he didn't score.
Massive thank you to our officials (Sally Hodge, Ian Hodge, Dan Lewington, soon to
be back in action, and Stef, who helped out between her events) who faced a
four-season weather (it hailed twice) and contribute with 8 points to our score.

Highgate Harriers won the fixture and we ended up the day in second position, just 3
points ahead of Watford Harriers. This shows how important it is to cover as many
events as possible, as every point counts. After this first match of the season, we
are in 6th position in the league.
