Solid Performances From CoSARC’s Depleted Squad
The first Southern Athletics League match was held in Gillingham, Kent. CoSARC fielded a small but supreme team of athletes, who didn't let the heat of the day prevent them from turning out some excellent performances across a range of disciplines. Richard Davidson earned a well deserved PB in the Hammer. Despite being light on numbers CoSARC still managed a solid 3rd place. In the 5000M Anton Weatherhead stormed round the track in 15:49:90 to earn himself a well deserved PB by 3 seconds.
