12/08/2018  East Anglian League, Ipswich

Hunts AC showed up at Ipswich for the last East Anglian League meet with a team decimated by absent athletes mostly due to holidays. Nevertheless, those who were available pulled out all the stops to ensure that all U13s, U15s and U17s made it through to the finals. The extreme case was the Under 17 Women who had just two athletes. Nevertheless, with the first three meets having gone well, Daniella Scholes and Ella Couchman stepped up to the mark with each scoring well in three events each. They amassed 40 points which was enough to see the U17W team finish 6th for the season. At the other end of the scale, the Hunts AC Under 15 Boys pulled off a famous victory by defeating powerhouse home club Ipswich 207 pts to 205 pt. There were also great individual achievements which three club records set.
Tamzin Digpal-Race threw the javelin 23.46m to add almost two metres to the Under 13 Girls' club record to go to 61st in the national rankings.
Jo Abel long jumped 4.71m to add 19 cms to her own Veteran Women's club record. She moves up to 4th in the W45 national records.
Ayo Opaleye cleared 1.71m in the U15B HJ to beat the 1.70m club record set by Alex Slater in 2002 and equalled by Ayo this year.
