Match 1of the 4 match series took place at Portsmouth on 30th April, with some stellar WADAC performances and full team sheets.

Oh what a night!

With a yellow weather warning it was with trepidation that two full WADAC teams and Officials ventured to the Mountbatten Centre on Monday 30th April for the first of four SCVAC (aka Vets) Track and Field matches season.

We need not have worried, although it was cold and there was a bit of a breeze on the back straight the Teams shone.

The Ladies won with 152.5 points over rivals Southampton AC in second with 127 points and rising stars AFD (we need to watch them!) in third with 106 points. 

I don’t like to single out athletes, as without you all we would not succeed, but to show how amazing you are the team scored 9 first finishes, 5 second places and 5 third places (out of 23) and a clutch of PB’s too.

The Men came a strong fourth on the night with 95 points.  Credit must go to Colin French who took part in 6 events!

Huge thanks to our merry band of Officials (Viktoria, Ewan, Steve, Andy, Graham and Me!) without you we couldn’t be part of the League.

Next match is on Monday 21st May at home, so please all sign up to compete, help, officiate and support.  Your Team Managers are Karen Hazlitt - vets-women@wadac.org.uk   Franklyn Young - vets-men@wadac.org.uk
