RETAINING their Southern Women's League title looks a real possibility for Windsor, Slough, Eton & Hounslow AC's ladies.
They overtook both Reading and Basildon to go top with just two matches left after winning their latest fixture last Saturday.
And if they can field a similar strength team to the one they had for their latest outing, the trophy should be theirs again.
Among the seniors, there were double wins for Georgia Lamothe and Shalisha Patrick in the 100m, Lesley Owusu and Zoe Wells in the 200m, Rebecca Taylor and Lois Bond in the 800m, Charlotte Banks and Aimee Partridge in the 80m hurdles, Jenny Pacey and Kim Rothman in the long jump, Bola Ogun and Naysa Harvey in the hammer, and Ogun and Abigail Jones in the shot. Caroline Heaney scooped two hurdles victories in the 100m and 400m, while there were also wins for Partridge in the 300m hurdles, Laura James in the B discus, and the 4x100m relay team.
There were two double wins among the girls - for Ellie Rayer and Imogen Eddings in the javelin, and Gabriela Zivanovic and Miriam Mohammadi in the shot.
Wins also came for Olivia Caesar and Georgia Haynes, in the B sprints, Emma Ford and Ana Inverany, in the B jumps, and Steph Clitheroe in the 75m hurdles. [25a0] Eight Windsor, Slough, Eton & Hounslow AC athletes are set to feature at next month's European Championship after hitting the qualifying mark last weekend.
Max Galliers, Deji Tobias, Rion Pierre and Nigel Levine should feature following their scintillating sprints in the England Athletics U23/U20 Championships in Bedford.
Galliers won the U20 100m in a new personal best of 10.54 secs, with Tobais hot on his heels in third in 10.61, while Pierre won the U23 100m in 10.34 and Levine emerged victorious in the 400m, with a new personal best of 46.30 secs.
Joining them should be Lawrence Clarke and Ben Reynolds, who finished first and third respectively in the U20 110m hurdles. The others set to join them in the Euros are decathlon star Ashley Bryant, and Dan Pembroke, who picked up a silver at Bedford with a throw of 67.22m in the javelin. Also landing silver were Alan McKie, in the U23 high jump, with 2.10m, and Shelayna Oskan, whose 54.86 secs in the U20 400m may also yet earn her a slot in the relay squad for the Euros.
