Hunts AC claimed a clean sweep of sprint successes in their first Southern League fixture of the season at King’s Lynn on Saturday.
Owen King and Llewelyn Thomas took the honours in the ‘A’ and ‘B’ strings of the 100m respectively while King also took victory in the 200m ‘B’ race with Owain Collard coming home in front in the ‘A’ event.
Collard also ruled supreme in the 400m ‘A’ bracket with a personal best performance while newcomer Liam Hunt was an easy 100m hurdles winner.
King, Collard, Thomas and Hunt then teamed up for 4-100m relay glory and Siobhan Skinner led from start to finish in the women’s 800m ‘A’ race while there was plenty more success in the field.
Hunts AC won all four divisions of the hammer.
