Avon County Athletics Championships – Saturday 12th May 2018

14 May

A big thank you to Hilary Nash who put a lot of hard work into setting up the on-line registration for this event and handled all the entries. There were over 80 club members entered and one of the highlights was Jess LEWIS’ new Championship Best Performance in the under-15 girls javelin where Jess threw 32 metres and 2 centimetres. It was good to see Paralympian Sophie KAMLISH compete in the 100 metres where she clocked 13.93.

There were good numbers in the Boys under-13 1,500 metres where eight athletes were ably supported by their coach, Ali HURFORD. Eoin O’HALLORAN led the club boys home in second place in 5:07.75. The same was true in the under-15 Boy’s 1,500 metres where Dave HART and Emma WITHERS had five athletes competing led home by race winner Steve KERFOOT in 4:27.88. Helen CLARK was on hand to support the five runners in the under-15 girl’s 1,500 where Alice BRIDGER-MORALES was first club athlete in second place (5:03.14).
