Improvement not enough

Thursday 8 August 2013

Cardiff's UK Women's Athletic League team produced a much improved performance in the third and final match of the series on Sunday last, 4th August, at Kingston but narrowly failed to maintain its place in Division one.

After arriving late at the stadium because of extensive road closures in the area, the team achieved its best result of the season, finishing in fifth place on the day and only one point behind sixth placed Wigan and District H overall.

Cardiff's individual event winners were Emma Pullen (400m A),  Emily Brown (2000m s/c A) and Rhiannon Linnington-Payne (400mH A). As usual, other athletes took part in several events to secure valuable points.

The match result was:

1.  Thames Valley Harriers (232 points)
2.  Crawley AC (198)
3.  Enfield & Haringey AC (190)
4.  Southampton AC (184)
5.  Cardiff AAC (165)
6.  Woodford Green & Essex Ladies (162)
7.  Herne Hill Harriers (148)
8.  Wigan & District H (106)

The overall league positions are:

1.  Thames Valley Harriers (23 league points)
2.  Southampton AC (19)
3.  Enfield & Haringey AC (19)
4.  Crawley AC (16)
