Cardiff's Senior Ladies Team

Thursday 12 July 2018

Cardiff's Senior Womens Team Manager Sharon Hevaron, reported last Thursday before Sundays Division 1 match (2) in London, that her team was very strong. Saw Sharon near end of Saturdays Welsh Schools Championships in Cardiff. Sharon was looking worried. Met Sharon as she was leaving stadium, asked how her team was, her reply was team is in tatters.

Imagine my surprise upon seeing on club FB page, that Cardiff's UKWL team had won the second match in London. Andrew Seary BAL Team manager went with tee shirts for the team, and took a couple of team photos. Had to wait till team results were posted on Power of 10 to see team individual results. No team positions are available at moment. Once results were sighted, it was no surprise the team had won the match. With (9) 1st places won in A and B events. Team also had (5) 2nd places, thus were stacking up a good number of team points. 

Like the men's BAL team, the UKWL ladies team members also doubled up on events. The only event not covered was s/c, only 3 club runners took part in s/c, an event that few runners concentrate on. 

Sharon must have recruited some athletes at schools event. Naomi Reid won schools 800m title, was sick after race, yet won B 800m even, and was 3rd in 400m (B) in Sundays UKWL match. Competing on two of the hottest days of the summer.

1st placers included Ffion Price 1500m (A), Kate Seary 1500m (B). Kate Seary 3000m (A), Lucy Marland 3000m pb (B). Sally Peake PV (A). Rebecca Chapman LJ (A), Sally Peake TJ (A), Lucy Griffiths SP (B).

Second place athletes included Lauren Evans 100H, Sara Geary LJ and TJ, Sara Omorgie SP, and Cardiff's 4x100m team.

Charlotte Wingfield 4th 100m, Catherine Hardy 3rd in 100m (B), gained good points.

All the team athletes contributed to the teams success and derserve congratulations.

Team Manager Sharon Heravon, showed determination in working hard right up to match, in fielding a successful, enthusiatic and supportive Cardiff AAC Ladies team.

Their last match is in Manchester (Sports City) on Sunday 5th August, with 2 match wins, Cardiff Ladies team, are favorities to win 2018 Division 1 title, and promotion to the UKWL Premier League for 2019 season.
