Athletes continue to improve at the end of another week and a demanding league competition, where a whole timetable of events are requested to be filled by the clubs. Wallasey, although a relatively small club, still manage to meet these requirements and finish in a wholly respectable overall place of fourth only one point behind third place.
The men successfully managed to field A and B runners in all events with a few best performances and well earned first places.
The first race on the track, the 400 metre hurdles, saw Steve Henfrey in fine form at present pick off the field one by one to take first place, a fraction of a second ahead of the second man and in a new personal best time of 57.2 secs, which is also inside the English Schools track and field championship qualifying standard.
In the 800 metre race, Dave Pendleton finished amidst a tough battle for the line, in third place in a new personal best time of 2.04 minutes.
Also reducing his time was James Downey in the 800 metre 'B' race, determinedly racing the competitors. The clock brought his time down to 2.06 minutes.
Due praise going to the youngest in the team, Paul Beacall who, amidst a line-up of sprinters many years his senior, finished in a commendable fourth with a personal best time of 12.1 seconds.
Hopefully, with an even stronger team in the next meeting, they'll strive for even higher ranks.
Great thanks go to all the officials who helped the meeting to run smoothly and spot-on time.
