NEYDL Match 1 - 1st May

We travelled up to Whitley Bay for the opening NEYDL league fixture and competed against teams from Morpeth, New Marske, Blaydon, North Shields and Darlington. With our U17 & U20 athletes competing in the UKYDL, we were woefully short of U17 athletes but some strong individual performances helped us to 4th team place overall. The following athletes achieved the AAA National Grade 4 standard with their performance: U13 Boys Zak Atkinson - 7.28m for Shot Putt (1st place on 1st attempt) Joseph Harris - 21.91m for Javelin (1st place) U13 Girls Rose Forrest - 2.39.4 for 800m (1st place) Jessica Jones - 5.37.4 for 1500m (2nd place in spite of a tumble in the first 100m) Carys Dickson - 1.29m for High Jump (1st place - not bad for a beginner!) U15 Girls Nicola Charlesworth - 8.68m for Shot Putt (1st place) Serena Grant - 1.45m for High Jump (1st place)
