There were some sterling performances for Huntingdonshire Athletics Club – with a number of their athletes making great strides up the club rankings.

Sophie Forbes-Laird was the first of them as she competed in and intra-club meet.

Running over 400m for the first time she clocked 59.4 seconds, a time that not only places her fifth in the all-time list at Hunts AC but is also the fastest recorded by a club female in 17 years.

It also lifts her to 13th in the U17 national rankings and missed the club record at U17/U20 level by just 0.7s.

Jason Bogle was also in his first 400m race and his winning time of 52.9s places him 45th in the U17 national rankings.
