Eighteen Yate AC athletes took part in the South West Inter-Counties Championships last Sunday, many of them doing a double fixture weekend after having been at the YDL match the day before! Most athletes were competing in their county vests, as this was also a competition between Avon, Gloucestershire, Wiltshire, Somerset, Devon, Dorset and Cornwall teams of all ages.
Between them our athletes covered a whole range of run, jump, throw events and brought home 16 medals, as well as some other great PB‘s and performances at this level of competition!! (Let’s not forget that each athlete had to have already achieved a certain standard to enter the competition!)
Toby Conibear won the U17 hammer with a championship best performance throw of 62.04m, and Lucas Harrell won the silver medal in the U13 javelin with yet another club record! Phoebe just missed out on a bronze medal in the U13 100m by 0.03 seconds!
