Alder Valley Girls – Match 2 – Bracknell – 3rd June 2018

In the second match of the series, Hillingdon AC travelled to Bracknell with a pretty good team despite it being at the end of the holiday week, reports Geoff Bayles.

The weather conditions were really hot in the high 20`s but the team went there and gave their best.

A good number of U11s turned out, many for the first time and they thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

The U13s faired well in the sprints with Elise, Sharon, Cassie and Amelia clocking best or near best times to pick up some good points.

Manyaa , Charlotte and Angel were not far away from their best times in challenging conditions.

Sharon jumped well in the High Jump and took some good points.

The U15s had some cracking times, Mia improved her PB in the 100m to 12.68 by winning the A race. Other times recorded…Laura 13.1, Esme 13.93, Lily W 14.01, Demi 14.15, Millie H 14.26, Izzy 14.36 and Carla 14.66.
The 200`s faired well also Mia again running strong 26.85 and backed up by Aleeyah 29.39. Other good runs coming from Esme, Lily, Izzy, Lauren G, Millie H and Thobeka.

The U17s did well in the sprints. Hannah set a new PB 13.58 in the 100m with Nana running a good time 13.68 in the B.

Close times in the 200s saw Lauren D run 28.53 and Nan 28.79.

Clara H and Lauren D not far off their best times in the 300ms with solid runs. Clara also ran a good time in the 800m 2.31.0. The sole hurdler Jamie Hogan ran brilliantly to set a new PB in the 300 Hurdles of 52.7 before running 14.0 in the 80 hurdles. Clara and Jamie then contested the High Jump with jumps of 1.40 and 1.25m.

The throwers did well. Kacey in the Discus, Hammer and Shot, Samantha SP, Elizabeth in the Javelin and Grace W in the SP.

It was a tough day for many but everyone did the best that they could do given the hot conditions. Some athletes came along and were doing studying between their events which was great to see.

The team finished 7th out of 9 teams with Reading and Bracknell taking the top 2 places.

A big thankyou to everyone who turned out….the athletes, the officials and the team managers.

Hope you are soon fit again Suzanne.
