SEVEN Havering Mayesbrook AC athletes were listed in the UK Women's 2005 top 50 rankings to round off a fabulous year for the club.Lucy Sargent, the rising sprint star, was the top ranked club athlete, featuring ninth in the 200m with a season's best of 23.78secs, while also being placed 10th in the 100m list with her time of 11.65secs.Both times are club records and the amazing fact that Sargent is still an under-17 makes it even more remarkable and bodes well for an important 2006 season, which will include the World Junior Championships in Beijing in August.International Combined eventer Kate Brewington also featured very prominently, despite having much of her season ruined by injury, ranking 10th in the heptathlon with her early season 5138 points tally in Italy and also making the 100m hurdles (36th - 14.42s), high jump (27th), with her PB and club record equalling 1.73m, long jump (34th - 5.81m) and shot listings.Faye Fullerton returned from injury to rank in three events. Her highest placing came in the 1500m where she was ranked 18th, while the 21-year-old student also placed 21st in the 3000m and 41st in the 800m. Experienced club cap-tain Debbie Appleton was again ranked nationally with her road running results, placing 16th with her club marathon best of 2h 42m 24s in the London event and 19th with 76m 08s in the half marathon. Three throwers were also ranked in the national top fifties with Mel Harrison 36th in the discus (41.00m), Sarah Deacon 46th in hammer (44.54m), while Emma Christmas was 43rd in the javelin in her breakthrough year with her club under-20 and senior records of 39.45m.
