Kent Young Athlete league at Erith June 25th 2022
Posted: 12th Jul 2022 by Kate Dickinson
Over 30 of our U13 and U15 boys and girls athletes competed at the third Kent young athletes match on the weekend of June 25th at Erith.
The strong U13 boys’ team were placed first for the second consecutive time, despite missing two athletes due to illness.
There were many great performances, numerous pbs and three athletes gained AAA Gradings. A big well done to so many that competed in events new to them gaining coaching experience on the day from AAC Coaches Jacqi and Hayley
Fantastic team spirit
As ever the relays proved to be the highlight of the day as the teams really pulled together to gain valuable points.
A big thank you to Lesley Hall for supporting as an official and all the parents that gain new skills helping with the field events.
These results from both the boys and the girls being even more remarkable , with the fact we have had no training facilities on a 400m running track all season , for all the track and field disciplines due to work being completed at the Stadium.
Well done everyone
Our next match is on August 6th at Tonbridge --

AAC athletes Kristian Samwell-Nash and Libby Turbutt finished the final KYAL match of the season in style. The pair managed to break three records between them, something that appears to be quite a common occurence for the talented pair.
Kristian broke the U15M 100m Club Record in 11.5s, he then went on to knock a huge 0.7s off his current 200m Record in 22.9s. This brings Kristian's tally to four Club Records this season (100m, 200m, 300m and 400m) with his eyes on two more records to finish off the outdoor season. Kristian also received a medal for breaking the KYAL 300m record earlier on in the season (pictured below).
Libby equalled the U13W 75m record in a time of 10.2s (pictured below), this time was 0.7s quicker than her first race of the season, a huge margin in the sprints! Libby now holds the 75m and Long Jump Club Records.
