Halton & Frodsham Harrier Jenny Pyatt has been selected to represent the North West in the upcoming Sainsbury's 2014 School Games which are taking place in Manchester in early September. Jenny has been competing over the last couple of years at the highest level of competition as an U15 and now as U17, and is currently ranked 8th nationally in the discus, despite being in the younger year of her age group.
From their website, the School Games are described as "an inspirational and motivational setting that ... provides our elite young sports people with the opportunity to thrive and perform at the highest levels"
Some more facts about the School Games:-
The Sainsbury's 2014 School Games is a multi-sport event that takes place from 4-7 September 2014 in Manchester.
Nine venues will host the event, including: the National Cycling Centre, the Phones 4 U Arena and Manchester Aquatics Centre.
The competition re-enforces the experience of Olympic and Paralympic Games complete with Opening and Closing Ceremonies.
The Sainsbury's 2014 School Games and its predecessor the UK School Games (2006-2011) have a strong track-record of providing a springboard for athletes who then go on to compete at a national level. Several School Games alumni went on to be part of London 2012 Team GB & Paralympics GB. The Sainsbury's 2014 School Games will give us insight into the make-up of our teams for both the 2016 and 2020 Games.
Around 1,600 of the nation's finest young sports stars will compete.
Competition is held in twelve current and future Olympic and Paralympic sports: Fencing, Rugby Sevens, Gymnastics, Hockey, Badminton, Athletics, Cycling, Judo, Swimming, Table Tennis, Volleyball and Wheelchair Basketball.
There will be disability events in six sports: Athletics, Fencing, Swimming, Table Tennis, Cycling and Wheelchair Basketball.
Approximately 700 coaches, support staff and volunteers will give round-the-clock support and advice, collectively committing more than 22,000 hours of their time.
It's a great accolade for Jenny to have been selected, and we wish her all the best for the competition!!
Track season update
Written by Website
Monday, 21 July 2014
The summer holidays are nearly here, and the track season takes something of a break throughout August so that athletes, officials and coaches can take a well deserved breather after many weekends of competitions, with just the Upper Age Group match for the YDL still to take place next weekend.
The club records webpage has taken something of a battering this year, with at 25 club records now showing as having been improved this year, with several of those being improved upon more than once, and by more than one athlete, and there are still more to update after this weekend's fixtures.
In the Cheshire T&F League the league standings were last updated after the first 2 matches, putting the club overall in 13th place, with the U11s higher up the table in 11th place overall and likley to rise higher after the match 3 results are added into the league standings.
In the Youth Development League, the provisional results for the club show us finishing in 6th place in the league in the Lower Age Group (U13s / U15s) securing a place in the same division for next year, with the Upper Age Group likely to finish in the same place in their league.
Still to come later in the season is the final match of the Cheshire League on Sunday 7th September at Macclesfield where it would be great to see as many athletes as possible across all age groups taking part. The County Junior Multi-Events Championships takes place on 14th September, also at Macclesfield, with Open Meetings still to come at other clubs around the area before the winter fixtures of road racing, cross country and indoor Sportshall leagues start to kick in.
Remember to keep an eye on this website and also on the Facebook feed for the club for any news as the year progresses.

Eleven Harriers spent two days in the sun this weekend at the County Championships at Macclesfield, with plenty of medals being brought back to the club!
In the U13G, Elouise, Abby, Emilia, Maddy and Rachel took to the track and field. Elouise ran in the 75m, qualifying for the final where she placed 8th. She also threw the shot put to take 4th place in the County. Abby honed her middle distance skills, running the 800m on Saturday, where she narrowly missed out on making the final, and also running her first 1200m race on the Sunday, where she placed 6th. Emilia placed 4th in the 75m hurdles and also placed 8th in the long jump. Maddy qualified from the 800m heat, and placed 6th in the final, as well as placing 6th in the shot put, and Rachel placed 4th in her heat of the 150m.
Liz Wright was the sole U15G competitor, placing 6th in the 800m and bagging bronze medal for 3rd in the shot.
Jenny Pyatt (U17W) continued her dominance of the throws, taking the top honours in each of the events she participated in on the Sunday. In the discus, she threw 34m49 to win the event. A javelin throw of 34m36 (PB and club record) sealed victory in that event, and in the shot put she cleared 10m to wrap up a marvellous day.
Jacob, Chris and Luke were the U15B competitors, each taking home at least one medal. Jacob took the gold in the 300m in a time of 40:54, as well as bronze in the 800m. Chris picked up a silver on both days, in the 80m hurdles and the high jump, as well as placing 6th in the long jump, 5th in the 800m and 8th in the 1500m. Luke placed 3rd for a bronze medal in the 100m in 12.26s, which was also a big PB and a Grade 4 standard performance, and placed 4th in the high jump.
Ben Sutcliffe in the U17M also took part over both Saturday and Sunday. Ben won the 100m hurdles in a thrilling race in a new PB and Grade 3 time of 14.24s. He placed 4th in the long jump, and took the gold medal home in the triple jump.
With 6 golds, 2 silvers and 3 bronze medals, as well as plenty of PBs and battling performances, everyone can be proud of their performances.
