THE combined team of Dorking & Mole Valley Athletic Club and Reigate Priory Athletics Club have won Division Two of the Ebbisham League to progress into the top division.
After two meetings, Dorking and Reigate were second, only half a point behind strong South London Harriers. Whoever won of the two teams would go up.
At the final league meeting, at Walton, only five scoring athletes from Dorking and Reigate were absent.
Highlights included Dorking and Reigate taking first (Chris Chalder), second (Jake Hourihane) and third (Callum Holder) in the U13 75m hurdles, a ten-point maximum.
In the field events, Andrew Pardoe won the high jump (1.30m).
Claude Remner finished third in the javelin A-string, which included UK number one Sam Mace (Walton AC), and claimed valuable points in the B-string discus with Louis Amoroso in the A-string.
Henry Allan came second in the U15 triple jump, his first time at this event, and Oliver Appleby finished third in the shot.
At halfway, Dorking and Reigate were six points behind South London and only three ahead of Walton.
This was preceded by 800m success with Ewan Bate winning the A string and Cameron Smith coming second against older entrants in the B-string.
Under 15 Sam Cliff, a 1500m specialist, recorded 2min 20.9sec, only 0.6sec off his personal-best.
A 200m triumph followed with U15 Tom McGachie finishing second in the A-string and Matt Ford hanging in for first in a tight race.
