The sun shone on a great team performance as a youthful Blackheath & Bromley team closed out a comprehensive victory in the first SAL of the season. The match started in a positive fashion on the track with 3 first places and a second in the 400mh and closed with a fantastic league record in the women's 4 x 400 with Louise, Megan, Rachel and Maya taking 3 seconds off the record set in 2011.

There were so many outstanding performances throughout the day so I will let you all look on the SAL website to see who did what but would particularly like to call out a number of outstanding performances:

Carlotta, Amy and Donelle in the women's 3,000 for a 1,2,3 - amazed that none of the other clubs entered athletes but you can only beat who's there

Oscar and the evergreen Richard in the 400mh where Oscar ran ever closer to the European U18 qualifying time and Richard showed just what experience can bring to the event

The women's sprint squad who won every single event from 100 - 400m, the sprint hurdles and both relays - the quality of their performances was amazing and culminated in a great season opening time of 4.56 in the 4 x 100 and a fantastic league record in the 4 x 400 in a time of 3:49.05

Tim Ayres for convincing those around him to get him out of some of the events he was selected to compete in

Pedro for yet another PB in the pole vault and three extremely close attempts at the club record - it'll come this season

Morgan for an outstanding debut in the 2000 s/c which was just outside the club record.

The women throwers where you all competed fantastically well and finished first or second in every single event they competed in including a senior debut for Daisy in the javelin with a fantastic personal best

All 4 men's relay teams for strong performances, particularly the 4 x 100 team who ran close to going under 43 seconds even though they eased up over the final 30 metres.

All of our middle distance runners (most of the U20 or younger) who showed the other clubs that we won't be a push over for many years to come

The team spirit shown by every single athlete as they cheered and supported their fellow athletes in all of the disciplines. Although athletics is very much an individual sport you were all fantastic in the support you gave each other to compete at this level.

The officials and ground staff for all of their hard work. Without them we wouldn't be able to have the league so a huge thank you for your hard work.

Apologies if I haven't called you out specifically but I would like to thank every single athlete for their performance today - a great way to start the season.

Nick Swatton, SAL Team Manager
