The combined Bristol & West/Yate & District athletic team won the first Midland Track & Field League Division 1 match (top Division) of the season at Rugby on Sunday 7th May 2017. As with the club’s BAL and UKWAL teams we had a goodly number of last week drop-outs and athletes concentrating on the Bristol 10k but managed to fill most slots. It is rare for any team to win an away match so to do it when so many of our athletes were elsewhere was particularly satisfying and came about through the contribution of the younger team members and the multi-eventing that took place over the weekend and on the day. They are too modest to mention it themselves but a lot of thanks must go to Team Managers Steve Grant, Pete Mountain and Matt Muggeridge who kept chasing individuals before the event and plugging holes n the day.
The provisional results are reproduced below:
