Vets Ladies make it 2 wins in a row at Basingstoke

The Southampton Veteran’s ladies team secured their second win of three matches in the Hampshire Vets Athletics League last night with a score of 137 points. A league in which the Winchester ladies team has been historically dominant, the Southampton team have only previously ever won one match in the league before this season. Stand out performances came from Janet Dickinson (first in the V50 100m, 400m, javelin and high jump) and Joy Wright (first in the V35 400m, high jump, and second in the 100m). Paola King and Roz Hutton ensured full points in the hammer competition, and Nicci Blandford and Claire MacErlean managed a similar feat in the 1500m. Claire also secured first place in the 400m (V35 B-string). Caroline Barnfield came 7th in the V50 1500m and Jane Pitt came 4th in the V60 400m. Vicky Bright came 4th in the Triple Jump with Christine Smears coming 7th in the V60 javelin and Katy O’Dell 2nd in the V35 javelin.  The night was rounded off with an impressive win in the medley relay. A win for Southampton ladies in the final match at Aldershot would secure them the season’s league win and a place in the Southern Counties Finals in Ashford, Kent in September.
