Division 2E Match 2 - York - 07/06/14
Report by Dave Aspin & Clive Thornton
New Marske’s second meeting of the Northern Track & Field League took place at a rain sodden City of York track in conditions more suitable for ducks. The highlight of the meeting was the men’s 5000m, it was a tactical game of cat and mouse, fast laps, slow laps, an effort from 1600m out then a slow down followed by a burn-up in the final 400m. Middlesbrough & Cleveland’s Greg Jayasuira came 1st with New Marske’s Nasir Hussain 2nd five seconds behind. Paul Darroch making his track debut for New Marske came home a fine 5th.
In the women’s 100m, Amy Readman came 2nd in a PB and Club Record equalling 12.9 and followed this up with a PB of 26.6 in winning the 200m. Aron Dale had a PB of 11.8 to come 1st in the 100m men’s B race. Elena Heath managed to equal her PB in the 200m.
Josh McMillan managed a PB in both the 1500m and Triple Jump. There were also PB’s for Stewart Hart in coming 3rd in the Hammer and Chris Wiles in the 400m.
Other notable results included Chris Waugh 2nd 100m & 2nd Triple Jump, Josh Baines 2nd Long Jump, Katie Coulson 2nd 400m Hurdles, Jess Simon 2nd Triple Jump and Beth Long 2nd in the High Jump.
It was another great team performance from New Marske, finishing one place higher than last time.
