On a wet, blustery day, a highly spirited group of BAC athletes teamed up with New Forest Juniors in a competitive yet friendly atmosphere.
Spirits were high and PB’s came in abundance, some unexpected as athletes stepped up to compete in events they had not tried before to help their team mates out.
In the ladies events, Serena Sutherland had a superb day, gaining 1st places in all 3 of her events :
U15w Shot with a PB of 9.87 m
U15w discuss – 26.10 m
U15w hammer – 21.03 m
Lauren Sheerin made it a double with wins in:
B string shot – PB of 6.91m
hammer – PB of 15.66 m
The U15 w long jump also saw wins in A and B string with Millie Lynk winning the A string with a PB of 4.89m and Elle Ward winning the B string with 4.41 m.
Despite feeling poorly, Elle also won the U15w Javelin with a new PB throw of 15.10 m.
PB’s were also achieved by:
Isabelle Franklin U13w 75m N/S in 11.3 s
Anya Sandell U13w 800m in 3:14.6 m
Rebecca Hannibal U15w 200m in 28.2 s
Yasmin Bridet U15w 75 Hurdles in 12.4s
The boys team also had some great performances with some of the boys also having a go at events they would not normally compete in for the team.
First places were achieved by:
Harry Grubb U15m 100m B string in 13.1 s and 300m B string in 43.2 s – both also PB’s.
Joe Hayward was 1 st in U 15m Long Jump in 4.70m
Fraser Spall was 1 st in U15m B string Javelin with 26.92 m
Mario Youseff was 1 st in U15m 100m N/S in 13.3s
PB’s were gained by:
Jim Dence U15m 80m Hurdles in 16.2 s
It was a pleasure to be part of such a positive team who showed great spirit and gained second place overall – well done and thank you to all athletes who competed.
