Twelve young athletes from our group made a significant contribution to this years LAG promotion, over the course of the 4 matches. The group has a very healthy, positive, supportive philosophy towards Competition and that is why so many of the group are willing and able to compete for the club across a vast array of events when called upon to do so.
In the last match in Middlesborough, Ella, Grace, Josie, Daniel, Jonah, Rhys & Harvey were available & selected by the club to compete across 9 different events. A great credit to themselves and the group.
I was delighted with the progress made by Josie & Harvey in the Hurdles with two excellent PBs. Jonah & Rhy's PBs in the Javelin & 800m respectively were also a good step in the right direction. Ella joined in with two excellent PBs in the 800m & Javelin.
Improved performances come about through consistently, committed, regular, quality training across all events. A very good example is the last session Ella did with Stewart on Javelin. From the feedback Stew gave me I knew progress was about to be made.
If we want to be selected for next year's LAG / UAG teams by our excellent Team manager Carl (Guardiola) Doodson, we simply need to keep improving our performances through good Training & Preparation.
Congratulations to all involved in this great success for SHAC!
