Here’s report on our U13 and U15 Youth Development League and Avon League teams written by team manager Sam. Along with plenty of photos of our marvellous athletes! Well done all! And again, an extra thanks to Sam for her commitment to the teams over the last eight years!"Well, what a season!! We seemed to go from nothing last year to everything this year! All athletes did superbly, especially considering last year there were no league matches at all and they had only a few months training before competing in what was a super hectic season. Everyone was incredible! Incredible. There were few injuries but overall all the athletes coped amazingly well.In the Youth Development League we had three matches, and we won overall by 11pts, which in a “normal” season would have seen us promoted!We had the girls U15 4x100m smash the club record three times over the season and the 4x300m Girls relay often having to run with the boys as no other club had a team.Athletes came just to do the relay, racing back (no pun intended) from family events just to compete for us and athletes, as always, jumped into events just to help out. In Avon League, Team Yate overall won with a whopping 3009 pts (2nd place had 2456.5) but the age group points were as follows: U13G = 2nd place with 293.5ptsU15G = 2nd place with 433ptsU13B = 1st place with 361ptsU15B = 3rd place with 358.5ptsThe highlight for me was, (to my knowledge) the first EVER mixed relay! Consisting of Max Elliott (U20M), George Horswell (U15B), Liam Hillier (U20M) and Summer Richards (U13G), I clocked your time at 51.72. It was so fantastic and hopefully something we can see more of in the future.Overall, so many PB’s and SB’s were achieved – too many too mention! Athletes found new events they were good at (Nina and the 800m spring to mind!). And some competed for the very first time – which is incredible following a year of little to no training. Just dealing with the mental strength it took to get back out there and compete was incredible.Thank you for being so awesome, thank you to the parents for your time and commitment, Kate for being our photographer, Phoebe for leading the relays, Liam for being my PA, Ellen for announcing, the parents that jumped in when I was off somewhere doing something else and all the officials and volunteers for giving up your weekends - competitions simply wouldn't happen without you.It has been an honour to be your team manager for the last eight years and I’ve been so proud to manage you all. I wish you all the best in your future athletic careers, remember - regardless of position, a PB is the best YOU can do!"💚💛💚 ... See MoreSee Less
