I have been advised by Lesley Nunn – Avon Schools Team Manager – that the following members of Bristol & West Athletic Club have been selected to represent Avon Schools in the English Schools Athletics Championships to be held at Alexander Stadium on Friday/Saturday 5th/6th July 2013.
Catherine Clayton – Junior Girls Discus
Ella Falk – Junior Girls 200 metres? (Details not provided)
Yemma Songu – Intermediate Girls 100 metres
Anicia Skeates – Intermediate Girls 300 metre hurdles
Rownita Marston – Intermediate Girls Shot Putt
Bethan Wakefield – Senior Girls 100 metres
Miranda Sadler – Senior Girls 1,500 metres
Madison Thomas – Senior Girls Long Jump
Harry Leeming _ Junior Boys 1,500 metres
Freddie Owsley – Intermediate Boys 400 metres
Chris Stone – Senior Boys 200 metres
Each of these 11 athletes has already produced some great performances this season and we wish them the very best of luck in two weeks time. Hopefully there will be a good contingent from the club in Birmingham to encourage them to their best efforts and it would be great to see some of them return with medals and/or PBs. For those in the bottom year of their age group it will be a great learning experience and will hopefully give them an insight as to what to expect in their senior year.
