A great turn out yet again for Team Russell in which was a pretty perfect night for competing apart from the odd heavy down pour. Again the girls didn’t disappoint and let the boys have all the glory with some great performances.
Records on the night were set by Alice Chapman Under 9 Girls 200m and Long Jump. Leya in the Under 9 Girls 100m. Savana Ojibah Under 20 Ladies 100m.
Like the boys there were also lots of new personal best set. Lahana Vardy set a 400m personal best and Long Jump. Erin Flannery smashed her personal best in the Under 13 Girls Long Jump. Izzy Chapman set personal best in the 200m, 800m and Long Jump. Ella Kynoch set a personal best in the 100m and was just short of her best in the discus after 3 no throws slowed things down and managed to get a legal throw on the last attempt. Maggie Naylor and Esther Rowe-Towle smashed their personal best in the Under 15 Girls 800m. Pretty amazing from Maggie to say she has only been back training fully for about 3/4 weeks. Rim Kanar was less than half a second shy of her personal best in the Under 13 Girls 800m. There were also some great efforts from Teoni Ojibah and Lilly Calvert who were both just short of personal best times in the 100m and 200m. Well done Girls just like the boys some great results. Keep working hard.
Team Russell records set on the night Ben Seymour Under 9 Boys 100m and just missed out by 2 cm on beating his brothers Long Jump record. George Connelly was in fine form setting records in the Under 11 Boys 100m and Long Jump. George still has next year in the age group too. Matthew Rhodes set a new Under 13 Boys High Jump record. Josh Kynoch found form at the right time to set a Under 17 Men’s discus record. Harry Atkinson set a Under 13 Boys Javelin record. James Wainwright yet again set another personal best in the Under 13 Boys Long Jump to extend his own record.
There were also plenty of personal best set on the night from Cole Wright in the Under 13 Boys 100m and Long Jump. Tyler Wingfield Under 11 Boys 100m, 200m and Long Jump. George Seymour Under 11 Boys 100m and Long Jump. Connall Flannery Under 11 Boys Long Jump. Albert Wolstenholme Under 13 Boys Long Jump and Javelin. Lucas Ward Under 9 Boys 100m and Long Jump. Zak Fergerson Under 13 Boys 800m. Elliot Reed Under 11 Boys 800m. Alfie Fergerson Under 11 Boys 100m. Thomas Hennessey Under 11 Boys 200m. George Bellamy Under 15 Boys 800m.
Special mention goes to Joseph Close, Adam Hirst and Jamie Rhodes who all ran superb personal best times in the Under 13 Boys 1500m and are now ranked 2, 3 and 4th in Yorkshire. Relays are looking good for next year boys with also Zak Fergurson in contention. Unfortunately not a Team Russell record as the record is a pretty good one set by Alfie Manthorpe a few years ago now. Well done also to John Hennessey who wasn’t far of his personal best in the 100m and Long Jump after a slight niggle on the first jump. Well done Boys some really great performances. Keep up the good work.
