YDL (Lower) - Bangor - 2nd May Print
Written by Website   
Wednesday, 06 May 2015

Six U15 athletes made the trip to Bangor last weekend to start their participation in the Youth Development League in cold and wet conditions on Sunday.

Skye, Alex, Rachel and Isla made up the U15 girls team, whilst Jacob and Luke represented the boys.

With such small numbers making up the team, it was difficult to score too many team points (especially with no U13s making the trip) but everyone that did put in some great performances, taking on disciplines which weren't necessarily their strengths to maximise the points scores.

Performance highlights included the new club record for U15B long jump by Luke (5m43cm)!

Let's try to get a bigger turnout at the next YDL Lower meeting which is on 30th May, closer to home at Warrington.

 
Guide to the Track & Field season Print

Image result for track and fieldEach year we update this "guide to the T&F season" to make the outdoor Track & Field season a little more understandable to new athletes and parents joining the club!!

The new Track & Field season is nearly underway, with Open meetings, YDL meetings and Cheshire T&F meetings showing in the calendar for the coming weeks and months.

Athletics is both an individual and team sport, and this is reflected in the fixtures throughout the year. There are some fixtures that Team Managers would like all athletes to turn out for, some that rely on selection as there are only a few places available, and others which athletes are encouraged to take part under their own initiative.

Above all, athletics is about more than just training - competing for the club, or for yourself at an Open Meeting, isn't just about trying to win (though that is a great feeling!!), it's also about showing how you have developed and progressed - nothing makes the coaches and team managers more delighted than seeing a young athlete break through their personal bests, no matter what position they come in the competition. So don't be put off from representing the club and turning up to a T&F meeting because you don't think you can win - every PB you get is a win, and every PB you just miss is a close second!!

Tuesday, 27 January 2015

28 Track & Field club records were set last year by the teams and individuals that represented the club across a variety of local, national and schools competitions.

Helped a little by the introduction of new weights for some of the girls throws, in 2014 the club website lists 3 U11 boys records, 2 U11 girls records, 1 U13 boys record, 8 U15 boys records, 4 U15 girls records, 5 U17 boys records (all by Ben Sutcliffe!), 3 U17 girls records (all by Jenny Pyattt!), and 1 record for the U20 men.

Already in 2015 Richard McGeachie has brought down his Delamere parkrun record to 17m29s - but which will be the first true T&F record to go this year?

Monday, 26 January 2015

Three Harrier teams had successfully made it through the league stage of the NW Sportshall League to earn places in the finals at Kingsway this weekend.

Full results of all of the matches are available on the Sportshall website by clicking here.

The first team out was the U11 Boys who participated in the morning session taking on teams from Wirral AC, Macclesfield AC, Crewe & Nantwich AC and West Cheshire AC. The league scoring had been very tight, and the Finals were similarly close with every team in the competition having the potential to take a spot on the podium.

The U11 Boys team did brilliantly on the day, and finished in third place overall with a combined score of 256 points. Wirral came out on top with 281 points and Crewe & Nantwich second with 275 points. Well done to Jadon, Joseph, Jamie, James, Dominic, Daniel, William, Ewan, Jack and Matthew!!

In the afternoon session, the two U15 teams from Harriers had made the final. In the U15 Girls, Alex, Sophie, Rebecca and Chelsea put in strong individual performances and finished in fifth place, matching their league position.

The U15 Boys team of Luke, Chris, Jacob, Daniel and Tom managed to better their league position with a fine 2nd place overall, scoring 408 points to beat West Cheshire (338 points) and succumb to Crewe & Nantwich (460 points).

With the seasons now complete, Cheshire County will be looking at the performances of individuals across all of the squads to pick the Cheshire teams for the regional Sportshall Finals for the U13s and U15s - good luck to those hoping for County selection!!

Cheshire County Cross Country Champs 2015 Print

Saturday, 03 January 2015

Nine Harriers, from U11s to U20s took part in the Cheshire Cross Country Championships at the picturesque, but muddy and rainy, Bolesworth estate near Tattenhall today.

U11 Girls

In their first XC races for the club, Lottie and Jessica Wood ran very strongly through the muddy course, placing an excellent 11th and 15th respectively in a very competitive and closely packed race in times of 8m37s and 8m57s over 1 small lap of the 1,800m course.

U13 Girls

A full scoring team of Abby Watling (13m04s), Isla Bellamy (13ms25s) and Skye Marsh (14m57s) placed 22nd, 26th and 31st, taking 7th place in the team competition running an extended small lap at just over 2,500m.

U15 Boys

A strong boys team of Chris Larkin, Lauchlan Stanier and Jacob Birtles were the first age group to tackle the tough, large lap section of the course at Bolesworth, and the team were more than up to the task, covering about 4,500m over the small lap followed by the large lap.

Chris ran a great strong race and was rewarded with a fine bronze medal, giving it everything in the final straight to almost sneak the silver crossing the line in 17m22s.

Lauchlan and Jacob also ran strongly, finishing in 11th (19m01s) and 12th (19m06s) places which secured the team the silver team medal behind a strong Vale Royal team.

U20 Men

Richard McGeachie continued his fine recent form with a well deserved 4th place in the U20 race in a time of 29m04s over just under 7,200m covering 2 extended large laps.

Well done to all of the athletes, and the parents / supporters who no doubt had plenty of mud to clean off themselves and their charges at the end of the day! And particular thanks to Nick Massey for his coaching and support which has produced such excellent results!
