On Wednesday evening 6th of September lots of people descended on Monkton stadium for the sprint relays and throws festival. Rosie Rice competed in the shot, and the teams for sprint relays consisted of Lisa Boyd, Rosie Rice, Helena Walsater, Colette Whitfield, Janine Routledge and Suzan Dudink for senior women, and for senior men, Adam Nott, Aidan Batey, Stephen Schubeler, Antony Scott-Daglish, and Keith Rooney.
both senior teams took part in the 4x100m, 4x200m, 4x400m, against what was notably a far younger average age in other club’s teams!
Best performance was the 4x100m womens team, Rosie like a bullet in leg 1, passing to Helena, Lisa on leg 3 happily going round the bend to pass to Suzan, who brought the team home in 2nd place! collective time 1:02:64
Overall Heaton placed 6th amongst 14 clubs, a sterling performance against tough competition of multiple teams in clubs, and younger on average!
