This weekend saw the South Yorkshire Track and Field League taking place at Spinkhill on Saturday and then the Youth Development Lower Age group on Sunday at Woodbourn Road. We didn’t manage any Team Russel Records this weekend but did see lots of personal best.
Personal Best :
Polly Platts set a personal best in the Under 15 Girls 800m and is getting closer to making the very tough Team Russell rankings top 10. Still another year in the age group so I am positive we will see Polly get amongst these rankings very soon. Bobbie Waugh opted for the shorter distances this weekend and set a personal best in the 100m. Bobbie will go in the 800m on Wednesday night and the way training is going could see Bobbie Challenge Emily’s Team Russell record. Daisy Kriel Parr set a best in the Under 15 Girls 800m. Daisy’s time’s are very impressive of just one running session per week.
George Bellamy set a big personal best in the Under 15 Boys 1500m and goes 4th on the rankings. Following George home in the same race was Adam Hirst who knocked 2 seconds of his previous best to go 5th on the rankings. Tyler Wingfield first year Under 13 Boy had a busy weekend going in three events on Sunday setting personal best in all 3 events (100m, 200m and Long Jump).
Well done everyone …………..
