13 **BAC** athletes competed in the** SAL Round 4** at Kingston on 4 July, resulting in a 3rd place out of 5 teams on the day. Taking earlier results into account, when less strong teams have been fielded, **BAC** now lies, overall, in 16th position of the 20 teams in **Division 3SW**. All of our athletes pulled their weight, competing in a number of events, in some cases of completely different disciplines. Particular congratulations to our winners at **Kingston**, namely **Jamie Williamson**, **Cameron Hale**, **Madeleine Smith**, **Josh Nevin**, **Rob McTaggart**, **Danielle Marshall** and **Sarah Kearsey**, but that is not in any way to take away from the 100% contribution of, and the valuable points earned by, each and every athlete.

**Aldershot, on 19 July**, there seem to be difficulties in opening the results from the WYAL website, but they are available on Power of 10, and, from there, the following

**BAC**athletes appear to have competed:

**U13B**–

**Louis Buron**100m A (5); 200m A (3); LJ A (6):

**Oliver Hassan**100m B (5); 75mH A (3); HJ A (3):

**Tom Farwell**100m n/s; 1500m A (4):

**Conor Charlwood**1500m B (4); SP A (5); JT A (4): there was also 4x100m

**U13B Relay Team**, which finished 5th, but the team members are not specified on Power of 10:

**U15B**–

**James Newell**300m A (3); LJ A (4):

**Fraser Spall**DT A (4); JT A (1):

**U17M**–

**Keelan Abley**200m A (5):

**Brandon Meredith**1500m A (3):

**Sebastian Hearn**1500m B (1):

**Jim Dence**80mH A (2); HJ A (3); LJ B (2):

**U17W**–

**Charlotte Sidaway**100m A (2); 200m A (2); 80mH A (1). It appears from Power of 10 that

**Samuel Rappoport (U11B)**ran three non-scoring events, namely 75mH, in which

**Samuel**was 14th of 45 in a season’s best, 600m (40/45 and PB) and LJ (19/43). Apologies to

**Samuel**if these were part of the competition and scored points! The League tables are accessible, and show that

**BAC**, probably fielding its weakest team if the season, finished 5th of 5 teams, but the final

**League positions**are much more encouraging. Overall,

**BAC**finished 14th of 24 teams, and the age group positions were:

**U17M**16th of 24,

**U17W**7/24,

**U15B**17/24,

**U15G**11/24,

**U13B**21/24,

**U13G**15/24,

**U11B**21/24,

**U11G**24/24. There were also

**QuadKids**competitions taking place alongside the League, but the results are very difficult to interpret. However, the final League position of

**BAC**‘s Quadkids was 24/24. As mentioned before –

*Well done, particularly, to the U17W and U15G teams for their excellent final League positions, but the main point is that hopefully*

**it’s the taking part which counts!****all**our athletes enjoyed participating in the WYAL this summer.
