A good weekend's work
It was a great weekend of athletics for the club with some great performances by our athletes. Pride of place must go to Shanice Harrison who won the Senior womens 200m title at the South of England Championships at Lee Valley winning in the time of 24.67. Her brother Creston also did very well to get to the final of the U20 mens 200m where he finished 7th in 22.72. Creston has struggled with injuries in recent seasons and it is so good to see him getting back to his best. Brandon Murray just missed out on progressing from the heats of the U20 mens 100m where he finished 6th in 11.57.

At track Coulsdon we hosted the 2nd Ebbisham League match for U11/U13/U15/U17 boys on Sunday. We had over 50 young athletes competing for SLH, and in all there were around 300 competitors. It was so good to see the track packed with athletes and spectators. The meeting ran very smoothly and our team did very well and we won. There were some excellent performances.

There were lots of medals and personal bests by our athletes competing in the Surrey Track and Field Championships at Kingsmeadow Athletic Stadium over the weekend of the 23rd/24th May 2015. The weather was mixed but dry and the events were well contested.
Shanice Harrison looked very impressive in the Senior women’s 100m and 200m. Shanice won gold in the 100m in 12.14 and was just pipped to another gold in the 200m taking silver in 25.17. Rami Miller equally stood out in the U15 boys sprints. In his first county championship he took gold in the 100m in 11.63 and silver in the 200m in 24.06.
