At the first Avon League meeting at a cold and windy Yate Outdoor Leisure Centre on Sunday 15th April 2012 the highlight of the meeting from a Bristol & West perspective was when Hayley Pitman increased the Senior Ladies high jump record by 2 centimetres to 1.70m. The previous record of 1.68m was set by Hayley in July 2012. A much bigger turnout than usual saw the track programme over-run considerably and thanks must go to those judges and timekeepers who spent 6½ hours officiating. Although there was a far stronger Bristol & West Athletic Club turnout than in recent years we would still welcome more athletes competing at the second Avon League match at the same venue on Sunday 10th June 2012.
A big thank you to the officials and team managers from the club, some of whom were new to these black arts and admitted to enjoying their afternoon – let’s hope we see them back at the remaining three Avon League matches as the club will always welcome new volunteers.
