West Norfolk Athletics Club enjoyed a great opener of the Southern Athletics League at St Ives at the weekend.

The team turned in some excellent displays to finish a respectable fourth overall.

James Greenhalgh and Matthew Bailey started the day off with a inter-club battle, both in the 400m hurdles, and winning the A and B string races finishing a second apart.

Bailey also won the 110m hurdles comfortably.

Making her first appearance in athletics, Georgia Ringham didn’t disappoint, picking up vital points in the 200 and 400 metres and showing good promise in the 100 metres. Hannah Greenhalgh showed good form to dip under the 30-second barrier in the 200m for third place.

Lucy Edwards had her usual busy day, competing in the 100 metres, long jump, triple jump and shot putt.

Cameron Ross showed good pace for third in the 100m (13.8) as well as fourth in the 200 metres.

Ben Collison was pleased with his two third-place finishes, along with West Norfolk AC team manager Adam Dewdney, who also competed a full day of field events.

Jack Pishorn gained a well-deserved third in the 100 metres in a time of 13.8 seconds.
