Rounds three and four of the Southern Athletics League saw West Norfolk Athletic Club travel to St Ives and Braintree.

West Norfolk finished a very respectful fifth in both matches and to hold their mid-table placing.

Craig Brooks and Matthew Bailey continued their sprinting form with Brooks clocking an impressive 52.7 in the 400m at Braintree and Bailey a 16.9 for the 110m hurdles.

Adrian Coote had a very busy weekend of competition, competing in the 400m, shot, hammer, javelin and discus.

In the women’s team, Nicky Neil had great battles in the 800m, Katrina Wasteney picked up vital points in both track and field events, while Emma Dewdney delivered promising results in the pole vault.

Luke Foster cleared 1m 80cm at both matches in the high jump.

Jack Pishorn, Ben Collison and Adam Dewdney collected more vital points in both matches.

Collison made a good run in the 800m, finishing in 2.17.8, Dewdney threw a good shot putt and Pishorn ran a sub 14-second 100m.

Showing grit and determination in the 100m and 200m was Cameron Ross who made some very competitive runs.

Gavin Minns clinched a third in the hammer, throwing 38.26m.

Special thanks to Ben Collison, Tim Brooks, Paul Bailey, Stuart Ross, Adam Dewdney and Wally Oliver for officiating.

West Norfolk will now 
travel to Peterborough next on Saturday, August 15, for the 
final league meeting of the season.
