Last ditch effort - George extends Club Hammer Record!


The last senior match of the season at Ridlins Stadium saw George Marvel extend the Club Hammer record he set at St Albans in August - a throw of 53m89 won the men’s event while Libby Taylor won the women’s Hammer with 43m49. Other wins came from Ed Laws and Joel Evans in the 400H - 55.03 and 58.45 respectively, Shannon Rapacchi and Aimie Taylor in the women’s pole vault 3m40 and 3m05 and Steve Feely in the B string shot. There were second place finishes for Will Galliford 1500m, Isaac Whitten 3k steeplechase, Michael Stocker pole vault, Jessica Astill 200m, Olivia Lindsay long jump and Georgia Shephard Gazely Javelin. The afternoon ended with an exciting mixed 4x400m relay. Stevenage’s team of Ed Laws, Jessica Astill, Alex Pickard and Chris Feely finished in third in a time of 4.07.40 mins .

A massive thank you to the many volunteers who gave up time to help officiate, organise refreshments and manage the team. It would not have been possible to host the match without your help.
