It was a very close run match throughout, with St Albans in the lead for most of the way, only to be beaten into second place by Dacorum & Tring in the final stages.
Best performances in the men came from Paul Adams and Tom Crouch comfortably winning both legs of the 3000m, and Christian Gaddes, with a very easy win in the 400mh. There were also pleasing debuts for Richard Devereux and John Ockendon.
In the Ladies, Abi Wilde made a very pleasing return, winning the A string Javelin with a throw of 35.10m, with Louise Kelly winning the B string. Louise also followed up with a 1st in the Pole Vault. Solid throws performances came from U17 Sophie Macken, with 2nd in the
Shot and 2nd in the discus. A welcome return to the track after a long break saw Kiralie Leigh-Jones win both the 1500m and 3000m.
Track debuts from St Albans Striders, came from Wendy Webster running in the 400m, 800m and 3000m, Claire Simm who did 1.45m in the High Jump and followed up with 2nd in the Steeplechase and Christina Smith in the 1500m.
Ladies Team Captain Deborah Steer, produced the best performance of the day by winning the 800m in a time of 2.41.4, which ranks her 4th in the U.K. W45 rankings.
This was a great improvement on the first match, and moved the team up five places in the league.
