JUST a point separates Thames Valley Harriers from three others at the top of British Athletics League Division Two after round two last week.
There were jacks-of-all-trades throughout the team, with valuable points scored by Steve Whyte who took second in three different field events.
Andrew Hennessey returned from injury to place fourth in the 400mH, third in the steeplechase, and record an astonishing 3mins 58.81secs in the 1500m considering his exertions in the first two races.
But it was Delroy Mitchell who won TVH clubman-of-the-day when he took on pole vault, high jump and 400m, before the 4x400m relay to nail down a 48.2secs split for the team's final leg.

THAMES VALLEY HARRIERS celebrated double gold in the UK Championships and World Trials at the weekend - but now face an agonising wait to see if their heroes are on the plane to Berlin.
The glory of a World Championship vest next month in the German capital is tantalisingly close for Phyllis Agbo after she won the women's long jump in Birmingham.
And UK selectors may yet decide if Toby Sandeman's winning effort in the 200m is good enough.
The 21-year-old (pictured), who won an U23 selection after a superlative start to the season, rewrote his own record book when he dived through the line in 20.69secs on Sunday night to shave three-hundreths off the mark he set only a month ago.
In beating a classy field, Sandeman also ducked under the B qualification for Berlin - but needs the A mark of 20.59 to be absolutely certain.
Agbo hit the sand on Saturday to record 6.42m and finish six centimetres clear of second. But the heptathlete also needs to find another 20cm to tackle one of her favourite disciplines in Berlin.
