UKAWL Match 1

Friday 8 June 2018

Cardiff's Womans team appeared with our BAL mens team in Cardiff International Sports Campus. Sharon Heveran Team manager reported before the match that Cardiff had a strong team, Sharon was proved right with our womans team winning the opening match by 20pts. the team was a mix of experienced senior athletes and youthful members of club. An example was in the 1500m with Ffion Price SW winning A race in 4.23.97, and U20 Kiara Frizell winning B race in 4.31.61. Rebecca Chapman Commonwealth Games athlete, won the long in a seasons best of 6.30. Sally Peake joined Cardiff from Birchfield Harriers, won the Pole Vault 4.00, and Megan Hodgson 1st in B PV. Sally Peake also came second in the Triple Jump A 11.32, with Eliza Durall 2nd in B Triple Jump in 10.42. Another example of youth and experience athletes was in the 3km with U20 A runner Abi Fisher 3rd, and senior woman Lucy Marland winning B race in 10.05.27. Lucy is returning to competitive running following a long injury issue.

Charlotte Wingfield had a busy day 3rd A 100m, 200m A 1st and member of 2nd place 4x100 team. In high jump more good team points were earned with A High Jump 2nd Hannah Tapley 1.70, and Lauren Evans 1st in B High Jump. So it is easy to see that many good team points were being achieved across many events.

The womens team were affected like our mens team with injuries, and good athletes unavailable due to competing in events abroad. The team has 2 remaining matches in league this season, they just missed promotion last year, so winning the first meeting, gives a great boost to team.

Sharon will do her best to turn out a good team in the next fixture on the 8th July at Crawley, London. Another good result at Crawley, will put them in a great place for the final fixture on the 5th August, at Sports City, Manchester.
