Stuart Howlett with his pentathlon silver medal from his record-breaking day in Oxford.

Stuart Howlett had a day to remember in the BMAF Multi Events Championships in Oxford.

The Ryston Runner bagged a full set of personal bests and two club age group records, as well as setting a new best mark for the pentathlon overall on his way to a silver medal.

In the long jump he finished ninth with 4.35m but won the javelin with a club record M50 throw of 37.04.

The long-standing club M50 200m record fell in an impressive 26.91 into a head wind and a solid discus throw of 30.15 left just the 1500m to go with a massive final effort over the last 300m seeing him clock 5.36.03 to finish with 2,739 points.

Also competing was David Lane, who scored 2,047 points with PBs in the javelin (26.51) and 1500m (6.07.36).

The third Southern Athletics League match of the season at Croydon saw Ryston battle to third place, agonisingly close to second, 176 to 173.5.

PBs were recorded by Tom Barnes-Hooker in the 110m hurdles (19.9) and 400m hurdles (66.8), Holly Chen in the long jump (4.42) and Lorena Latisaite in the 200m (31.3), 3000m (1.32.9) and 2000m steeplechase (8.33.0).

There were event wins for Rob Simmonds (110m hurdles, shot put, discus, hammer and javelin), Che Plant (400m hurdles), Chris Balmer (2000m steeplechase), Mel Reed (800m and 3000m), Annie Rooks (2000m steeplechase) and Lorena Latisaite (2000m steeplechase).

Several Ryston juniors took part in the QuadKids event.

David MacQueen finished fourth in the younger boys age category, throwing a new best in vortex howler of 20.54.

Bailey Took won a medal for overall performance in the older boys age category.

Bea Honeybone, in the older girls age group, won the vortex with a throw of 32.01 and ran a 100m PB of 16 seconds.

Combined with her long jump and 800m scores, she added a further four points to her previous month’s tally.
