THE Havering Mayesbrook Southern Women's League team made it two wins in a row as they beat league leaders Aldershot in their second round fixture at Milton Keynes on Saturday.

Mel Harrison turned in an all-star performance with a quartet of wins in the shot, discus and hammer, plus B string javelin for the Division Two side.

It was the best set of results she has put together on the same day, with the shot and hammer efforts close to her all-time best, as well as good quality throws in both discus and javelin.

Nicola Hill added a hat-trick of victories with wins in both the 100m and 200m sprints, the latter a new best, and she stepped in to win the B discus with a respectable effort.

Emma Christmas' fine form continued as she set another new best to win the javelin, and took full B hammer points, as she also scored in the high jump. Claire Brennan won both 100m and 100m hurdles and a track double also came from Katie Richardson and Nina Brennan in the 400m.

Brennan also earned second place in the B shot.

Wins for Cathy Matthews (100m hurdles B) and Robyn Delivett (B 200m) ensured doubles in those events. Matthews was also second in the 400m hurdles and third in the triple jump.

Danielle Ross added 15cms to her pole vault PB to go second on the club all time list, finishing runner-up on the day, as well as adding high jump points.

Vicky Smith returned from injury to gallantly tackle all three middle distance events, with second places in both the B 800m and 1500m and third in the 3000m A. Angela Thompson improved her PB when she finished second in the 3000m B, and Hayley Pegg (1500m) and Ingrid Deane (800m) completed the winning squad who look on track for promotion if the results keep coming in the remaining three fixtures.
