WEST Cheshire AC's throwers powered their way to some impressive performances at the club's end of season promotion match.
Nicola Gore partnered Stephanie Owens to a string of victories at the Northern League promotion match at Wavertree, in Liverpool, but unfortunately it was not enough to earn West Cheshire a late promotion to Division One.
Nicola spun the discus to a club-record mark of 41.17m to merit maximum points alongside Stephanie, who secured 35.48m for success in the Bevent.
Stephanie won the hammer with a throw of 40.81m and Nicola claimed a B event victory with a new personal best of 34.53m.
Nicola then added top spot in the shot with a put of 10.60m and bagged a new best of 28.38m in the javelin alongside Emily Fisher, who finished fourth with 28.45m.
Brothers Dave and Andrew McKay starred in the men's throwing events.
Dave launched the javelin to a winning mark of 60.72m and Andrew cemented a B event success with a throw of 41.81m, and pocketed top spot in the B hammer (34.95m) alongside Dave, who finished third overall (38.83m).
Dave (11.85m) and Andrew (10.49m) also finished second in the A and B shot competition respectively.
