Match Report – YDL LAG Bournemouth 20th May 2017
A determined team of LAG athletes boarded the coach for their second YDL match in Bournemouth on Saturday morning. There were several new members of the team competing in the YDL league for the first time, including Poppy Huxtable, Evie Hodgen, Grace Penfold, Iona Hobbs, Callum Stewart and Archie Forsyth all of whom showed great enthusiasm and determination throughout the day.
There were some great performances throughout the day, despite the weather! All credit to the 200m runners who raced through a monsoon with PBs for Caitlin Paul and Eva West. In fact, the girls were on fine form as all of the U13 and U15 girls achieved PBs in every sprint race throughout the day along with Imogen Burton and Bella Wiles in the 1500m and 1200m respectively. In the field, Georgia Russell had a huge PB in the hammer. Not to be outdone the boys all sprinted to PBs as well with George Sudderick equalling the Club Record in the 100m. They were joined by Ross Hurst, Archie Forsyth, Ollie Emment and Callum Stewart in the 800m and Jack Gemmell, Finn Punton and Jacob Gelona in the 1500m. The field events were equally successful with both Luca Soave and Ben Palmer jumping PBs in the long jump and Christopher Vaughan and Ollie Emment in the javelin.
