Congratulations to Team Avon who won the first match of the Upper Age Group YDL in Swansea yesterday! In fact, they finished more than 150 points ahead of the second-place team, Swansea Harriers!
It was a great day, with Yate AC athletes playing a vital role in the team (Team Avon is a composite team with athletes from Yate, Bristol & West, Team Bath and Mendip AC – wearing maroon and yellow) and achieving 18 PB’s between them, with several first place finishers! Every point counts in a team competition, and we are so thrilled with every one of our club athletes who contributed their best to this fantastic result, especially those who have just moved up from the Lower Age Group!
Official results have yet to be published, but a few highlights include: Abdi and Dalis both winning their 3000m races, Dan and Cory winning the A and B U20 100m and 200m, Toby and James winning the A and B U17 hammer and discus, Fiona winning the U17 HJ.
Well done to team managers Sandra and Lesley for putting the team together and thanks to all our officials for their hard work during the day.
