3rd SYAL T+F 28 June

Invitation cards and e mails have gone out for the 3rd match of the T+F League which takes place on Thursday 28 June at Shrewsbury.

The Shrewsbury track is at London Road Sports Centre (Shrewsbury College), SY2 6PR. There is plenty of parking.

Events start at 6.45, but please arrive by 6.15 so we can finalise teams etc. Numbers and vests must be worn.

Track and Field Round up

The long awaited Cosford results are finally in. There were individual wins for Ella, Ruari, John, Lucy, Beth, Toby, Sophia and Manali. Unfortunately only the U13G fielded a complete team and were rewarded with second place on the night. The U17W were first (by a mere two points) putting them in the lead overall (just!). The U17B were third. As a club we’re lying in 4th, with the girls in 3rd.

The next SYAL competition is at Shrewsbury on Thursday 28 June – invitation cards and e mails have gone out, so please let us know asap if you are available.

We had only two athletes at the second YDL meeting at Stourport on 27 May, but both Sophia and Toby produced PBs, showing how important competition is in improving performance.

A number of Wenlock athletes also competed at the Shropshire Schools Championships on 9 June. Harriet (hammer) and Lizzie (1500m) got bronzes. Hester (300mH), Edith (800m), Beth (1500m) all gained silvers and a chance to represent the county at the regional Mason’s Trophy in Birmingham. Sophia is also off to Birmingham, having won the 800m title, and is just outside the qualifying time for the English Schools in both 800m and 1500m. Toby won the Shropshire Schools Combined Events title, competing over two evenings in the IB Octathon.
