CAC Seniors Crowned SAL League Champions


We have heard nothing of our senior teams this season since our previous correspondent resigned - and yet so much has been going on via the National League where unfortunately we have been relegated, whilst three wins from four in the Southern showed more consistency than our more illustrious opponents.

The women`s events which were covered mainly by juniors and under 17s picked up an amazing twenty first places. Kissiwaa Mensah and Nneka Okoh claimed double success in the 100 and 200 whilst Nneka with Grace Tremelling took the long jump applauds. The high jump also gave us a full points tally through Zion Ateba and Rosie Townley, Zion 400 hurdles and Rosie 100 hurdles Molly Drane ran a PB in the steeplechase behind Hannah Bolton who put in a seasons best both having run the 800 metres earlier. Sienna Shipton achieved a PB when winning the 400m `B` race. Teagan Rayner also put in a seasons best to win the 1500 metres and there was another seasons best from Kiera Atkinson in the 5k event. In the throws Jessica and Maegan Hopkins took full points from the shot putt and discus. Jessica's shot putt effort of 14.08m was deemed to be best the performance from all the women's events. The relays at the end of the day saw CAC taking the 4 x 100 and 2nd in the 4 x 400m There were fewer wins amongst the men with a number of regular members missing through holidays and other commitments, Oneyeka Okoh won the 400 and in placing second in the 200m put in a PB. Joseph Grange in winning the steeplechase recorded a PB and had a season best in the 1500m for third place. Bradley Reed and Kristian Brown took the honours in the 110m hurdles. In the 800m Joseph Perry (3rd) and Gregory Martin (1st B string) both achieved personal best times. In the high jump Thomas Hewes had a seasons best of 2.10m which apart from a win claimed best best male performance of the day, for the second time this season. From a Chelmsford view point perhaps they may consider Luke Keteleers as there man of the match as he took part in no fewer than seven events to fill in for absent colleagues.

It is difficult to give a good account of a meeting when having only Power of 10 and the Leagues website for information. One hopes that a volunteer will come forward to take this on next season.
