END of season activities do not always provide surprises but the Liverpool Pembroke Sefton contingent that went to Litherland for the Southport Waterloo Open Track & Field Meeting enjoyed multiple success stories.
Pride of place probably goes to U13 Lucy Staunton-Turner who in her first ever javelin competition threw 32.34m to propel herself into joint third in the UK rankings.
Also blasting her way to the top was Kirsty Longley. A virtually solo effort in the rarely-run one mile race saw her clock 5.11.8 which carries her to second in the current UK O35 rankings and no less than fourth on the all-time list.
The talented youngster also with a huge smile was U11 Lauren Lewis whose 10.9 for 75m and 21.8 for 200m was breathtaking.
LPS dominated the throwing events with Zac Ellis moving his U17 javelin best to 45.47m, Ruth Doran throwing a solid 10.79m senior shot put before going on to Newcastle University and Alex McSweeney (U15) stringing three PBs in shot (11.58m), discus (32.84m) and javelin (46.40m).
Veteran Dave Brown also enjoyed a triple helping of shot (10.29m), discus (31.01m) and javelin (38.36m) while Billy Williams was a cool senior high jump winner with 1.80m.
