The first Alder Valley Girls League Match got off to a good start with the sun shining!
Although numbers were low due to the Road Relays taking place in Birmingham, as well as injuries, each girl that took part on Sunday gave it their all and managed to attain points for the club.
One particular athlete, Leanne Davies, taking part in the U17 Javelin not only managed to get a new PB of 39.22m, she is now ranked #2 in the UK in her age group and has qualified for English Schools. A big well done Leanne and we look forward to hearing more good things from you.
Whether taking part in a League for the very first time, trying out a new event or helping coach the younger athletes, everyone pulled together as a team and the atmosphere was very positive.
We were only 10 points off catching the next club in the rankings so with a few extra athletes at the next match on 19th May 2013 in Guildford, let’s see if we can do this!
