Fourteen of our young Athletes contributed to another SHAC victory in this very successful T&F season. I was delighted that Harry RH made his debut for the club - in 4 events! and that Matthew S competed for the first time this Summer. The group competed across 14 different events, which demonstrates how our multi-event approach, as part of a Long Term Athlete Development model, is working extremely well in providing opportunity and keeping all future options open to our young group of athletes. An extremely good example is that when there was noone for U13 Boys Discus, two of our group Daniel & Rhys stepped forward to fill these places. Daniel is currently ranked 2nd at the Club in this event, as a multi-eventer.
There were numerous, well deserved PBs across the group and in many different events. Particularly impressive were Luke's massive PB in the 3000m, Rhys' over 4m Long Jump, Libby & Harry MR's PBs in their middle distance races and I liked Harry RH's first effort in the 800m and his time in the 100m.
As we get deeper into the T&F season, I am looking forward to reporting on many positive results, as we invest more training across a multitude of events. Some athletes made excellent progress over half term.
Congratulations Harry RH, Rhys, Sam, Matthew, Annabel, Alexa, Lauren, Libby, Harry MR, Harvey, Cameron, Daniel & Luke on your excellent contribution to the team and on your personal achievements!
