MULTI-EVENTER Damian Bastick collected three wins to help Queen's Park Harriers take a creditable third place in their first Southern League match of the season.
The John Kelly Boys' School teacher won the 110m hurdles, B string shot putt and triple jump at Crawley - as well as finishing third in the 400m hurdles, fourth in the high jump and second in the B string pole vault.
There were several other strong performances for QPH, who were promoted to Division Three last season, with the reliable Brendan Greene leaving the rest of the field trailing in his wake to win the 3,000m steeplechase in 11 minutes 6.7 seconds.
In the B race James Walerych produced a personal best of 13:06, while Harold Lisk Jr performed steadily to win the triple jump and take third place in the long jump.
Debutant Rahimullah Whaedi ran superbly to finish third in the 800m (2:09), second in the 400m and fractionally short of a PB (52.2) and third in the 200m (22.2).
Another newcomer, Keith Backhus, took fourth place in the 100m (13.2), as well as finishing third in the long jump, while Michael Dmitrzak crossed the line in fourth in his first ever 1,500m on the track (4:42).
Ray Gallagher (pictured) made a welcome return to the fray after a year out through illness to claim second place in the hammer (30.50m) and fourth in the shot (9.08m).
There were third places for QPH in both strings of the 5,000m, courtesy of Andy Angus (20:33) and Richard Davis (22:19), with veteran Barry Smith finishing fourth in the B string 200m (28.7).
