Southern Athletics League, K2 Crawley 22nd May 2022 from Jo Davey
There was a sea of RPAC vests competing at the SAL yesterday at the K2. We dominated in the middle distance events with commanding performances from our juniors. Lilah Unwin led the whole way in the women’s 800m winning in a season’s best of 2 min 17s. Oscar Curry ran in a similar fashion race winning the men’s A string 1500m followed up by Euan Willis who won the B-string with a great tactical run. In the women’s 1500m Jo Davey was 2nd A-String runner.
In the sprint events another talented junior, Roman Thompson-Lamont ran the 100m & 200m races - a season's best in the 100 of 12.1s and a strong performance also in the 200 (time tbc). Jo Davey ran a PB in the 400m in 65.5s to come 2nd in A-string race.
Laura Ebbs made her track debut in the women’s 3000m (and first time running in spikes!) and had a sterling run finishing 3rd A-string in a time of 11 min 33s.
In the field events Dan Statham unfortunately had to drop out early due to a back injury niggle but still managed to put in a 1 m 65cm jump scoring valuable points for the team.
