YDL (lower) Leeds
The club are a step closer to retaining their Northern Premier title after a 120 point victory over Preston with home club Leeds in 3rd place. The quality of performance was tremendous, especially as most of the match was held in pouring rain (see photos). The highlight was SAM WORTHINGTON who ran a Grade 1 performance of 37.10 seconds to win the 300m and equal the club U15 record held by JONA EFOLOKO.
SUCCESS EDUAN won both the U13 girl sprints with Grade 1 performances and is to be congratulated on setting club records for both the U13 girl’s 75m and 150m at a recent Trafford medal meeting. SOPHIE ASHURST was incredible in the U15 pole vault. Competing in the worst weather conditions, she spent much of the competition under an umbrella keeping herself and her pole dry and still vaulted a Grade 1 performances of 3.22m. The wind was gusting so strongly she might have gone even higher using the umbrella rather than the pole – Mary Poppins style!
Other highlights were other Grade 1 winning performances from HERMIONE MASON, ABRAHAM FOBIL, POPPY GLASBY-SEDDON, BRANDON MORGAN and TAYLOR EDWARDS. In all we had 45 individual victories and 3 wins in relay events. The middle distance squad had their best match result for some time with victories from JAMES KELLY, JACK SPARK, TAYLOR EDWARDS, HARRY EDMUNDSON, LARA CRAWFORD, JESS SPILSBURY and MAISIE WISEMAN. A special mention to AIDAN LYNCH and AKIRA EDGSON who improved their PB’s by large margins.
Sale sprinters were again dominant with victories from SUCCESS, SAM, BRANDON, ABRAHAM, HERMIONE, CHARLOTTE WILKINSON, PRAISE OWOEYE, LUI DEMATOS, JASMINE RICHARDSON, HOLLY MURRAY, OSA ODEMWENGIE, LIBBY WARREN, CLARA EDLER and AYLA HEWITT. MACKENA BRADSHAW was our most successful athlete in the throws with two victories. Other wins in the throws came from ABRAHAM FOBIL, MIA WALKER, TORRIN LINDSEY, SAM BROWN and PRAISE OWOEYE. In the jumps, BROOK WHYATT, JED BAILEY, SAM WORTHINGTON, ELLISE FRYER-FRANCIS and HOLLY MURRAY all finished in the first two of their events.
