Sunday's match in the Cheshire Track & Field League saw 7 club athletes running, jumping and throwing with plenty of PBs and strong competitive performances.  Whilst the team size was small, with lots of athletes away on holiday, all who turned out should be very proud of their performances.  And thanks to the team managers, coaches and officials from the club who continued to give up their spare team to support our athletes!

Full results are now on the Powerof10 website at http://powerof10.info/results/results.aspx?meetingid=190565

U11 Boys

Finley Jones represented the club in the U11s category, and took part in the 75m (11.2s - PB), 600m (2m11.9s - PB) and Long Jump (3m52 - PB) continuing his progress across all three events in his first season, with highlights being a second place in the 75m A race and 3rd in the Long Jump.

U13 Girls

Twins Beth and Charlotte were the only club members in the U13 Girls category.  Charlotte ran in the 100m (16.1s - PB), 800m (2m45.8s - a strong 2nd place) and jumped 3m06 for a Long Jump PB.

Beth jumped a big PB in Long Jump with 3m13, debuted with 8m49 in the Javelin and ran 3m02.1 in the 800m.

U13 Boys

The squad of Matthew, Aaron, Ben and Ewan all put in good performances as the final four competitors for the club.

Matthew ran in the 200m with a PB of 30.8s and followed that up with a PB in the 800m running 2m44.4.

Aaron also competed in the 200m and 800m with PBs in both events too in times of 31.8s and 2m56.2.  He followed those with a debut in the High Jump clearing 1m15.

Ben Sutcliffe also took part in three events, running 35.9s in the 200m (PB), 3m13.9 in the 800m and throwing the Shot to a distance of 3m80 for another PB.

Finally, Ewan Macnab ran the 800m where he placed 2nd in a PB time of 2m34.3 and move up to 3rd in the club's Powerof10 all time list for the U13B 800m discipline.

And finally...

With so many good performances amongst such a "compact" team, just think how well the team could score overall if we managed a more sizeable turnout!  We know that not all athletes can make every event, and some regulars are missing due to injuries, but there's still one League match to go at our "home" event (though its at the Warrington track!) on Sunday 3rd September.  So far this year 25 club athletes have represented the club at Track & Field League meetings - if you haven't managed to hit the track yet this year, please get the date in your diary and let's see a strong and sizeable team turn out to take part in and support your teammates as they put their training to good use!
