Matches this weekend were Open Meetings at Bath & Birmingham. Again we only had a token turn out but results were positive.
At Bath Paul WESTON had two star Jumpers out with Theo winning both the LJ & TJ in style and with Nicola BREAKS achieving a very respectable first competition of the season with a winning jump of 13.73m. What a team she and Mariame will be in the Summer Midland League matches. Incidentally Mariame was at the French Indoor Champs this weekend.
At Birmingham Geovaughan showed consistency compared to past weeks in his 60m but then went on to record an excellent pb & Club Indoor U17 Record in the 200m with a 23.43 clocking. Luke showed well to win the U20 Pole Vault with a seasons best and Lucy won the U17 event with her second best vault of the season. Despite these performances the most heartening run was by
John Brierly who we believe tried an indoor 800m for the first time. John trailed the leader throughout, as you would in training, and ran quite easily to come home in 2m 01.00s. Well done John, all of that training is working.
Next week we have the EA U20/U17 Indoor Champs and we know that Paul Weston has great hopes for Theo. Yannick Budd also goes in the 60m Hurdles where he should improve further on his pb if he can get the start right. Good luck to all of our Athletes next weekend.
