Shropshire county championships 2019

The county champs took place on 11 May at Telford. We had a small band of mostly younger athletes who got the badge out, so well done to Abi, Emily, Lois, Lucy, Leonie and Ray.

Special mention to Oliver gold (60m) and bronze (600m), Tristan  silver (LJ), Beth silver (1500m), Alexander bronze (60m).

Many of our athletes will also be taking part in the Shropshire Schools Champs in June.

Finally a belated but well deserved congratulations to Oliver who took the county U10 cross country title back in March.

First SYAL track and field

The first competition of the season was held on 2 May at Telford.

Unfortunately the U11B were the only full team we managed to get out on the night, which inevitably impacted on the results.

There were individual wins for Beau, Olly, Lois, Ophelia and Sam, so congratulations to them.

The U11B took second place in the night and club is lying in 3rd place overall.

The second competition will take place at Shrewsbury on 27 June.
