YDL LOWER MATCH 2
The club’s U13 & U15 YDL league team recorded many impressive performances but finished runners up to Preston who became the only team (other than Sale) to score over 600 points in a Northern Premier match. This 2nd match was held at Wakefield.
Our U15 boys had a great day winning both relays plus fourteen individual events. BASIL ZOLA and ABRAHAM FOBIL both won four events each. MARCUS Mc CLEAN won a sprint double and his 200m time of 22.60 seconds was probably the stand out performance of the day. Further victories came from EMMANUEL JOHNSON, AIDAN LYNCH, WILL PARKER, EVAN SAVAGE, ALEX JAMES and MACKENA BRADSHAW whilst JAMES KELLY, WILL STANWAY and TOM BOYD recorded big PB’s.
In the U15 girl’s events SUCCESS EDUAN won a sprint double with PB performances whilst MELISSA BOOTH jumped a magnificent 5.35m in the long jump. SOFIJA DRAGISIC-WOOD won the hurdles with a PB and Grade 1 performance whilst HERMIONE MASON was a clear winner of her hurdles event as well as running a PB over 800m. PB’s were also recorded by LAURE KIDUKULA, KIA-LICIA CLARKSON, OLIVIA NOLAN, LUCY ARMITAGE, KATIE STRINGER, AVA TAYLOR, LIBBY HILL, JASMINE RICHARDSON and MIA WALKER.
Our U13 girls were in great form, winning six of the nine individual ‘A’ events. NATACHI NWOSU won a sprint double including a 19.67 seconds clocking for 150m. JASMINE REED (1200m), ANNABEL AMADIN (SHOT) had winning league debuts. Both girls also won County titles last week with ANNABEL breaking the club record and JASMINE going to number one in the UK rankings. Our other two winners are still at Primary School. SARA CLOUGH ran a fine tactical race to win the 800m whilst THEA BROWN won the high jump with a Grade 1 performance and ran a PB in the hurdles. Two other Primary aged athletes who performed with great distinction were AVA CLOUGH who recorded a PB in winning her 1200m and TIA GROVER who recorded PB’s in both sprints. EBONY ROBINSON won her 800m event whilst ELLA GILLESPIE finished runner-up in the javelin and recorded a PB in the hurdles.
Our star in the U13 boys was LEONARDO SCOTT who competed in four events, recording PB’s in both sprints when winning the 100m and placing second over 200m. Our middle distance runners were in great form with victories from JACK SPARK, TORIN LINDSEY, OSCAR SCHOFIELD, HARRIS PATTERSON and JOSH COLQUHOUN-LYNN.
As always well done and thanks to team managers CARL WORTHINGTON, SARAH JAMES and DAVE MARSH.
