Lincolnshire Road Relays
29 September 2002

Lincoln Wellington athletes were in dominant form at the Lincolnshire Road Relay Championships at Boston winning every event in which they fielded a team with the exception of the under 13 boys race.

A cracking opening leg by Blue Haywood in 5 minutes 27 seconds set the under 13 girls team up for an impressive victory in their race. Charlotte Hanson did very well to come home in 5.38 on leg two and Lara Thomas completed the win in 5.44 on the final leg. This trio will be in action in tougher company in the Northern Road Relays at Blackpool shortly but they seem set to acquit themselves very well. The Wellington under 15 girls produced both the first and second teams in their race. Sarah Kimpton (7.56), Josina Clarke (7.51) and Rachel Humberstone (7.21) recorded a comfortable win for the A team. And the feature from the B team was a fine first leg from Elizabeth Harley who clocked 7.20 for the fastest leg of the race. Katy Campion (8.30) and Kelly Gilbert (7.34) completed the silver medal winning squad. Natasha Johnson continued her return to full fitness with a good first leg in the under 17 girls race in 7.21. Sarah Coates maintained the lead with 7.14 on leg two and Alice Thomas did everything necessary on the final circuit to notch another team win in 7.40. There was a strong run from new member Lucinda Pitcher on the opening leg of the senior women's race. A time of 14.33 gave her a clear advantage and Katie Tilley (16.03) and Kathy Warhurst (15.41) kept the momentum going for a comfortable win for the club. A Wellington B team comprising Pat Penistan (16.33), Rebecca Rowley (19.00) and Pat Kimpton (19.16) kept going well to pick up third place.

The Wellington under 15 boys squad is particularly strong at the moment and despite the absence of Danny Roome and Tom Herbert an easy win was recorded. Mark Plaskett crossed the line in 7.01 on the first circuit and passed to Dexter Haywood who ran well for 6.54 on leg two. Josh Stone has only just resumed training after a break but he indicated his potential by flying round on the final leg in 6.20 to complete the formalities. There was some consistent running from the under 17 men's team. Will Strangeway (13.44), Ian Kimpton (13.39) and Matt Hughes (13.30) all performed well to record another Wellington first place. The under 13 boys race was quite a keenly contested event with the Wellington teams eventually finishing second and third. Elliott Haywood (5.21), Jack Ramsden (5.38) and Beren Cross (5.40) did well for the A team. And the B squad of Joe Mayall (5.28), Dan Cocking (5.47) and Sam Naughton (5.43) were not too far behind them at the line. The one disappointment of the day was the inability of the senior men to raise a team due to a combination of injury and unavailability. Dean Houlton had a useful workout on leg one and returned in a good time of 19.41 but regrettably had no-one to hand on to.
