PB’s and team spirit galore at YDL Upper at Horspath, Oxford – 29th April 2018

The Hillingdon AC YDL Upper team did so well at their first fixture this is the second report we’ve received! Thanks Geoff Bayles!

Hillingdon AC travelled to Oxford for the first match of the season with a reasonably strong team.

Many athletes were not available due to forthcoming exams just around the corner but that did not stop the athletes that did travel in picking up numerous PB`s and SB`s throughout the day. Freezing conditions did not help but the athletes turned up the heat with some very rewarding performances.

Victory was obvious right from the start of the meeting and the team won by 210 points from 2nd placed team Vale of Aylesbury. With so many PB`s recorded I won`t name everyone but just to highlight that team spirit carried the athletes to personal triumphs.

FEMALE

The female sprinters, Amelia Daley, Nana Adjei, Emily Colyer, Simone Russell and Lauryn Dennis all achieved PB`s and picked up useful points for the team.

Clara Higgs winning the 800m and star performer, Keady Heanen, running both the 1500m and 3000m for the
first time and also a leg of the 4×300 relay was kept busy on the track in difficult conditions.

Jamie Hogan running both Hurdle events in PB times and also ran legs in both relays was another star performer.

The Jumpers picked up close to maximum points, Amelia Daley taking two first places in Long and Triple.

The Throwers were not far off taking maximum points either. Kacey Laird taking part in three events, Grace Westbrook also took part in three events and helped out the team by competing in her first track event for the club with a leg in the 4×300. Holly Hall a superb win in the Javelin.

Both relay teams placed second.

Amy Hillier placed well in the 100m, 200m and 400m and backed up by Simone Russell and Elizabeth Brooks
200m/ 400m.

Ambra Neason another star performer placing first in High, Long and Triple Jumps.

Solid throwing by Emily Wilcock in all four throws gaining big points for the team.

MALE

The Sprinters ran extremely well, Ben Brownlee achieved two 2nd places in the 100m and 200m. Andre Rai PB for first in 400m backed up with a win for Tariq Arieff in the B event.

Solid distance performances by Max and Ross McGarvie, Adam Ireland 1500m/3000m, Josh Lee 1500m/3000m.

The Hurdles set PB`s or just missed out by fractions with great efforts by Monty and Rhys in the 400H.

Rahul Anand ran the 1500m Steeplechase for the first time and was cheered all the way.

The Throwing team of Ben Hooley Shot Put and Javelin, and Rahul Shot Put and Discus all picked up good points.

Two wins by both relay teams showed they were too strong for the opposition.

A fine double by Louis Southwell 200m and 400m backed up by Tashan Allman winning the 400m and two good times by Monty 100m/200m.

Aaron Hall had a good run to win the 1500m.

Aaron Connell and Dean Gabriel-Ojo took valuable points in the Throws.

Olu Akinseye was superb taking three wins in the Shot Put, Discus and Hammer and a third in the Javelin backed up by Mayank Mishra winning the B Discus and Dean winning the B Javelin.

Two strong runs in the relays completed a fantastic win overall.

It wasn`t about PB`s on the day although many set PB`s and SB`s. It was more about winning as many points
as possible to help go into the second match of the series later in May. Team Spirit was certainly there and it wasgreat to be there to witness it.

It was a shame that some of the events had so few athletes competing but at the end of the day you can only try to beat who is there on the day.

Well done to all who took part and the Officials who ran the events, without you this match could not take place.

Upper YDL Match 1 – 29th April 2018

The first Upper YDL of the season at Horspath Oxford got off to an absolutely freezing start, reports Courtney Clarke. However it was also amazing with many PB’s and SB’s. Every athlete excelled themselves in such cold and windy conditions and I could not be prouder of them all.

Hillingdon AC won the match by a convincing 210 points above second placed Vale of Aylesbury AC.

Thank you to the officials, timekeepers and everyone who came out and helped in the field on an absolutely freezing cold day, you do an absolute amazing job, again thank you.

First 2018 3k Training Race – 24th April

On the evening of Tuesday 24th April we had the first 3k run of the session with 65 young athletes running, reports Courtney Clarke. Everyone ran with enthusiasm and it was a pleasure to watch.
As always the officials, time keepers and Marshall’s (who responded to my last minute plea) did an amazing job.
Already looking forward to the next one on Tuesday 29th May.

Well done to all who supported this event and a big thanks to officials Gavin Collett, Philip Welch and Sharon Talbot.

Spring 5k Masterclass – Progress Update

Last Thursday night saw the first progress check for the Dash for Fitness Spring 5k Masterclass, in association with HAC, with 8 of the Masterclassers taking part in our 5k Training Race.

It was an incredible night with every runner beating their baseline time, six of them beating their interim goal and, astonishingly, four of those six achieving their end of programme goal (so they will now get new targets!). Very many congratulations to: Beth, Cliff, Fiona, Julia, Kate, Lisa, Tiggy, Victoria.

Congratulations also to Ian, who achieved his 5k progress check time at Monday night’s FREE Dash for Fitness Running group, and to Carey who beat her end of programme goal at a Parkrun.

It’s possibly unfair to single out anyone from Thursday night but I have to call out Tiggy’s performance. She started the Masterclass with a baseline time of 40:00 (her 5k time of a year ago when she last ran) but, after 3 track sessions and diligent completion of homework, achieved a 5k time of 34:04 on Thursday. Wow!

Bookings are now being taken for the 12-week, Summer, 5k Masterclass that starts on Thursday, June 21st. (sessions will be held in Ruislip on Thursdays at 7.15pm), then please email your interest to dashforfitness@btinternet.com. It costs £20 in advance for the first 4-week block. Alternatively, you can pay for all 12 weeks at a discounted rate of £50.

Alder Valley Girls – 15th April 2018

Today saw a fantastic start to this year’s Alder Valley Girls league with a lot of solid runs, jumps and throws many of which brought accompanying PBs, reports Courtney Clarke. There was an impressive turnout of 52 girls many of whom were new to competing in athletics and showed their determination to do well both individually, and as a team with cheers and calls of support being heard from the stand throughout the day. Many events, including the 200m, and the longer middle-distance races, as well as javelin and high jump, where hindered mid-afternoon by heavy rain but even this did not dissuade the athletes from putting in their best performances. Well done to all! And to the officials that ensured these events were able to continue in these far from perfect conditions.

The day ended with some incredible relay running with our two out of three of our scoring teams securing solid wins in their heats. Before adding the relay results (two out of three which we won) the overall results put Hillingdon AC in sixth place which equals our position from last season and leaves us with a solid foundation to build on this season.

Altogether, each and every one of our athletes who came today made the coaching team proud. We look forward now to another productive season with each one of the athletes progressing individually and the team building on its strengths throughout the remaining Alder Valley Girls competitions.

I’d like to thank Meryl Dickinson and Trevor who team managed today and done an amazing job.
