15/07/2014  Corby AC Open  details

As age begins to catch up with Joseph Purbrick, he is chasing Under 11 Boys' records with a passion. Making the trip to Corby with the express intention of breaking the club 100m and 200m records, he didn't disappoint. Adding his 9th and 10th club records, Joseph first of all took on the 100m, winning his race and reducing Julian Priest's (looks like it's useful to have the initials JP) one-year-old U11B record by half a second down to 15.0. Next up was the 200m and, finishing third against older athletes, Joseph took over two seconds off Joshua Rathjen's three-year-old record with his 31.0 secs clocking. With 10 weeks to go before Joseph's Under 11 career is over, he'll continue to chase records and, in particular, the shot putt which appears to be his for the taking after a recent giant shot putt foul.

100m: Race 1 - 4 Emily Purbrick 15.4; Race 2 - 5 Ellie Linnell 17.3; Race 3 - 1 Joseph Purbrick 15.0 Club Record, 3 Abbie Smith 15.8; 200m: Race 2 - 3 Joseph Purbrick 31.0 Club Record; 800m: Race 1 - 3 Emily Purbrick 2:49.9, 9 Abbie Smith 3:36.1; Race 2 - 6 Charlie Evans 2:49.5, 9 Sam Evans 3:00.6, 11 Ellie Linnell 3:21.5

    12/07/2014  Southern Athletics League - St Ives  details

    Competing on home turf in the latest Southern Athletics League meet, Huntingdonshire AC athletes continued to shine. Leading the way, 16-year-old Polly Smith set totally unexpected club records in the 2000m steeplechase. Having never even practiced over the barriers or the water jump previously, there was some scepticism when Polly declared her interest in taking on this challenge. However, despite having run in the 3000m race just a couple of hours earlier and in a personal best time at that (11:27.3), Polly's confidence was sky high after also setting personal bests over 1500m and the mile in the previous six days. Once the gun went, Polly stuck to the task at hand and, although using very rudimentary skills to clear the barriers and water jump, her determination and speed in between was dogged to say the least. However, it wasn't until the start of the final lap that it became apparent that Polly was on course for a club record. Finishing third behind older athletes, Polly ran 8:29.0 for the distance which established a Hunts AC Under 17 Women's record, beat her sister Eleanor's Under 20 Women's record by 13.9 secs and, for good measure, also took the Senior Women's club record by 13.8 secs. These were the 59th , 60th and 61st records of the year for Hunts AC. The club also enjoyed success in the men's steeplechase, 3000m distance, where Dave Connell took the lead just after the halfway point and proceeded to pile on the pressure, pulling away to a 24-second win in a very useful 10:04.2. Continuing the theme of winning over barriers, 22-year-old Sam Palmer ran a personal best 65.0 secs to win the 400m hurdles A string race, while Peter Downhill backed him up with a very comfortable win in the B race, gaining maximum points for the club in this event. Sam also went on to achieve personal bests in the 200m (25.8) and the 400m (54.9). Richard Phelan was the club's sole A string winner in the field when clearing 2.90m in the pole vault. B string winners included Bob Ellingham in the hammer throw (35.18m), Sandra Pedley in the pole vault (2.60m), Sandra's daughter Rebecca in the 800m (2:35.2) and Amy Chalmers in the 3000m (12:04.1). In the women's 400m A race, 20-year-old Lily Seach ran away from the field, winning comfortably by over seven seconds. The Hunts AC women finished the meet off in style when Lily teamed up with Diana Pereira, Charlie Batterbee and Jada Griffin-Howard to squeak out a win over the London Heathside quartet by one-tenth of a second in 53.5 secs and, just 30 minutes later, Lily and Jada joined forces with Eloise Webb and Rebecca Pedley to completely wipe out the opposition in the 4x400m, finishing 24 seconds ahead of the runner-up in 4:27.0. The final Southern Athletics League meet of the season takes place at Thurrock on 2nd August.
