Harrow’s British League team finished in fourth place at Derby on Saturday with the non-availability of some athletes causing the usual team management challenges!
However, there were a number of encouraging results which included a win for Stephen Mears in the 800m (1.54) and solid point-scoring in the javelin where Charlie Granville took second with 57.88m and Dave Sketchley won the B string with 56.16m.
There were also personal bests for 400m runner Max Arzt-Jones with 50.30 and talented all-rounder and Club stalwart Noel Reid in the Pole Vault with 3.20m! The relay squads were also sharp with the 4x100m team winning in 42.47s and the 4×400 relay runners placing second in a quick 3.20.68.
The results leave Harrow second in the league and 1 point behind TVH, and the final match at Kingston on 8th August will decide if we are to be promoted for next year’s competition – athletes please make yourself available for selection!
