Sumner athletes run personal bests FIVE SUMNER Running Club athletes represented their schools at the New Zealand secondary schools track and field championships in Hawkes Bay recently. Jess and Meg Fahey, Marian College, Max McLachlan, Burnside High School, Abby Theobald and Victoria Wells, both St Margaret’s College, all competed at the three-day championships, returning with personal bests and medals. Personal bests were recorded by Theobald in the road race and Wells in the 100m hurdles and 300m hurdles. McLachlan, in the steeplechase, and Wells, in the 100m and 300m hurdles, both produced times which met the entry standards for the New Zealand track and field championships in Hamilton in March. Both Theobald and Wells were in the St Margaret’s 4x100m and 4x400m relay teams. Wells’ team had success, finishing third in the 4x400m, and fourth in the 4x100m. Less than a second decided the first five teams in the 4x100m final. The athletes battled hot conditions throughout the championships and were forced to stay in the shade and keep hydrated when not competing. The best conditions were probably at the road races on the final day with the races starting early in slightly cooler temperatures.

HEATHCOTE ARE just one win away from claiming the metro senior A one-day cricket title after defeating rivals Sumner by 142 runs on Saturday. The round-robin winners were too good for Sumner who were looking to continue a late fairytale run after sneaking into a semi-final spot with a dominant final round win over Halswell. Batting first at Heathcote Domain, the home side got off to the perfect start with John Garry, 72, and Matthew House, 71, putting together an opening stand of 108. A number of healthy contributions from the middle and lower order helped Heathcote reach an imposing 272/8 from 45 overs. Sumner found themselves in trouble early when Tommy Sturgess claimed the wickets of Chris Wilson and Marcus Thompson in the first over. Tom Gooday was able to steady the ship with a knock of 43. However, Sumner were unable to make a real push at the total and were eventually dismissed for 130 in the 23rd over. Heathcote will host LP Addington in the final on Saturday.
