Bristol & West Juniors Contribute to Team Avon Win in First National Junior League Match

Bristol & West Junior Athletes made a very impressive contribution to the Team Avon result in the first National Junior Athletes League fixture at Yate Outdoor Sports Centre on Sunday 1st May 2011. These performances included Lucy Bryan winning the Female Athlete of the Match award for her grade 1 pole vault effort of 3 metres 80 centimetres. Matt Halton from PLY/CN won the male award for 14.51m in the shot putt.

Alice Grosjean is included in the club list because she is a higher claim member eligible to compete in the Team Avon because of her Mendip AC membership. Alice was just 7cms short of a grade 1 so she should be in contention for an Athlete of the Match award during the season.

Two brand new members impressed with very encouraging performances Alyta Norman and Joan Pangol.  I’m sure their coaches will be delighted with their first efforts representing B&W in the Team Avon match.

 

The team result was a convincing win for Team Avon by 91 points:

Team Avon 586, Cheltenham & County Harriers (the only solo club) 495, Plymouth & Cornwall 401 and South & East Wales 359.

Athletes now need to seriously consider their support for the team since the promotion match in August will provide a super competitive event. The prospect is good for promotion which will expose competitors to greater challenges in 2012. The Premiership has eight competing clubs so event fields will be more numerous and a higher average standard.
