Peter Lee Memorial Open – Ridlins Stadium 7th April


154 entries were received for the Open Event at Stevenage on Sunday. Not deterred by gusty winds and the threatened showers, competing athletes gave the Club the opportunity to test the new Electronic Gun, Kyle Spitzer to undertake his first event as starter, the new cabin to be christened and Norma to enjoy her first sitting down role, registering athletes.
Installed on Tuesday, electrics on Wednesday, the new cabin proved to be a success, easy to link to photo finish and set up WiFi, with plenty of space for registering athletes using Roster. The event gave the Club the opportunity to fine tune arrangements ready for a ‘run’ of home league matches starting next weekend with an Eastern Young Athletes League Match.
In spite of a head wind for the 100m there were nineteen personal best performances in the five races. Although the sprinters didn’t enjoy the head wind it gave the pole vaulters a tail wind resulting in two PBs and a season’s best. Many more PBs were recorded in the 200, 300, 400, 800 and 1500m along with the U11 events (80 and 600m).
The first Peter Lee Memorial Trophy was awarded to the athlete who had made the most progress in a Field Event since 2023. This went to U17 Edward Turner who recorded a 4m PB in the hammer. The award was presented by Janet Lee. The Club presented Janet with a photo book featuring Peter in his many roles as a Field Judge.
