Chairmans cup - harriers finish a strong 2nd

The Under 11s and Under 13s performed excellently at The Chairman's Cup competition on an extremely hot day, Sunday 14th July.  Although the Club narrowly missed out on victory to Rugby and Northampton AC, the winning margin was only 16 points.  The youngsters did their Club, their Coaches, their parents and themselves proud!

There were some fantastic achievements throughout the day with the majority of the 50 plus athletes for the Club gaining personal best performances in their events.  For many this was their first competition and hopefully has given them confidence going forward.

Best performances of the day were Haydn Bennett who in the u13 Boys gained first place in the 100m, 200m and javelin as well as assisting his team mates to first in the relay.

Also Ethan Nelis and Dylan Bowley both broke the U11boys 800m club record which has stood since 2000.  Dylan is now the current record holder for the Club breaking the previous record by over 10 seconds!

Other 1st places were as follows:-

Emily Williams - U13G 800m

Diarra Layne U13B Long Jump 

Lewis-Morgan Barton U13B High Jump

Demi Fox U13G Long Jump

Niamh Monaghan U13G Javelin
