UKYDL Division South East 1 – U13/U15 Age Group

Lewes Athletics Track.                  Sunday, 15 July 2017

 

This was the last of the UKYDL Lower Age Group meetings and our second, if slightly colder, visit to Lewes. With our numbers again severely depleted, the team worked together as always to cover as many events as possible. We ran again as a combined team with Thanet AC but the task was even more challenging as unfortunately no Thanet Athletes attended. Sadly, we were aware that we would be relegated from this league but that didn’t stop everyone trying their hardest; and again we had a number of very impressive performances and a huge total of 36 PB’s.

 

The Under 13 Girls’ had some impressive results, including Kilali Dejeva winning both the 75m (10.90s) and 150m (21.50s), whilst Libby Turbutt won her 150m race (20.5s) and the Long Jump (4.54m).

 

In the Under 15 Girls’ category, Kaliyah Lacey won the 75m Hurdles (12.70s) and Grace Pitman won the Pole Vault (2.70m).

 

With only three boys in the Under 13’s team (Jack Saxby, Harry Harman, and James Paine); they all made a really big effort to contribute to the team.

 

The Under 15 Boys’ were led by a win by Kristian Samwell-Nash in the 200m and another club record (23.60s), and he followed this up with a win in the 300m (37.8s).

 

The day finished on a high with the Under 13 Girls’ winning a blistering 4x100m Relay, followed by the boys running a strategic and exciting 4x300m Relay making up three places on the last leg and managing to finish in 2nd place.
