Devon Brimecome and Owen Richardson at Cardiff in their first international run for England - they both won gold's in their relays and Owen silver in the 400m and Devon bronze in the 300m hurdles

Champions again in the Wessex league

IBasingstoke won the final match of the season on the Isle of Wight on Sunday and in doing so won the overall title for the 4th year running. A great performance by all, we could not do it without our young athletes turning out for all the matches. It would be good to see more turning out in the U11 category so that the load is shared between athletes more evenly.

The age categories finished as:

U17M - 1st
U17W -1st
U15B - 6th
U15G - 1st
U13B - 5th
U13G - 2nd
U11B - 9th
U11G - 6th
QuadKids - 5th

It just show where our junior club is at the moment with countless club records being broken and more English Schools competitors then ever this season.



English Schools Championships


Hampshire School’s athletes performed magnificently at the English Schools Championships at Birmingham winning a hatful of medals. Three titles were won, one of these going to Owen Richardson in the Inter Boys 400 m. Running with great confidence throughout, Owen took the gold with a 48.32 clocking a new pb in the process. Of the Basingstoke Club’s other performers Devon Brimecome  won silver on the Inter Girls 300 m Hurdles, Devon and Owen now go on to represent England Schools in the Home Countries International to be held in Cardiff.

With 13 representatives from the Club in action all performed well in the face of tough opposition. From these results the pick apart from the medallists were, Evie Wilcox 4th Inter Girls Discus, Malachi Gair 4th Junior Boys High Jump and Hannah Haugvik completed a trio of 4th places in the Junior Girls 80 m Hurdles. Harry Richardson was one place lower in finishing 5th in the Final of the Junior Boys 800 m and Millie Cook placed 8th in the Junior Girls Sot Putt.

Hampshire in the end won 14 medals and celebrated a successful weekend.

BAL Match 3 Derby

After a fraught build-up to the 3rd of this year’s BAL fixtures at Derby the Club’s Senior Men’s Team finished a disappointing 6th of the 8 Clubs but another 7 points would have seen the Team 4th. Although a bad result the patched up Team worked hard with a number of athletes coming late to fill the places so thanks to them.

During the week prior to the meet, 6 athletes dropped out, one as late as Friday night at 11:15 pm, with as many as 26 out either injured or unavailable things were made difficult. Also further injuries on the day didn't help and led to the final position although a late surge nearly saw the Team snatch 4th place which would have virtually secured a promotion slot. However the Club remains 2nd in the Division and in a promotion position, it is now all down to the last fixture at Bath in 5 weeks time where a straight fight out between Basingstoke & Mid Hants and Kingston & Poly, with the Club that finishes the highest in that match gaining promotion to National Division 1.

Star athlete for Basingstoke was Sam Sleap, who notched up 53 individual points during the afternoon as well as being in the 4 x 400 Relay team, Sam completed 6 individual events with 2nd in the A Pole Vault with a 4.00 m clearance his best height in windy conditions, a B 110m Hurdles win in 15.22 was also a good performance. Alex Teuten also scored lots of points with 27 recorded from his 3 middle distance events the best of which was the 2nd in the 3000 m Steeplechase in 9.45.74. Dean Showler-Davis recorded a double winning the A 100 in 10.76 and the A 200 in 21.41 while brother Kieran was B 200  winner in 21.97. Joe Flitcroft had a busy afternoon, his best performance coming in the Hammer with a 44. 55 m throw a new personal best. Andy Blow scored another win this time in the 110 Hurdles and in the process recorded a wind free season’s best of 14.43 .

So after a difficult afternoon the Relays brought some solace with 4 x 100 finishing 2nd and the 4 x 400, 3rd.
