York A.C Open Meeting


A great turn out from our younger athletes with lots of new personal best and Team Russell records with a few athletes competing for the first time.
Team Russell records – Under 9 Leya Sheibani set records in the 75m and Long Jump whilst Under 9 Boy Ben Seymour had a very busy day setting records in the 75m, Long Jump and Shot Putt.
George Connelly was in fine form in the Under 11 Boys 75m beating his previous Team Russell record with a super fast time and still has next year in this age group. Thomas Hennessey had a very busy day setting a new record in the Under 11 Boys Shot Putt and setting personal best’s in the 75m and 600m.
James Wainwright also had a busy day beating his previous Under 13 Boys Long Jump record and setting personal best in the 200m and Shot Putt. Once this boy has a growing spurt and is the same size as boys in his age group expect some super fast times and big distances. Harry Atkinson also had a great day. He = the Team Russell record in the High Jump and set a new personal best in the Shot Putt.
Personal best on the day also came from Freddie Saunders Under 9 Boys 75m and Long Jump. Fletch Wild had a very busy day setting three personal best in the Under 11 Boys 75m, 600m and Long Jump. Will Platts also set three personal best in the Under 11 Boys 75m, 600m and Long Jump. Elliot Reed 75m Under 11 Boys. George Seymour 75m Under 11 Boys. Sister’s Codie (Under 13) and Jersey Smith (Under 15) both set personal best times in the 100m and 200m.
Well done to John Hennessey and Polly Smith who also ran well and were just short of their personal best. Not bad considering John’s injury problems over the last few months and Polly has just started a new training regime so was probably running a little tired.
Well done everyone a great day ………………..
