Juniors third again

Sunday 1 June 2014

Cardiff's NYDL (U13 & U15) team travelled to Birmingham yesterday, 31st May, for the second round of this year's league series and, again, came an excellent third in the team rankings, matching their performance in the first round.

Stars of the day included triple winners James Vincent, Lauren Evans and Sarah Omoregie.

Lauren's excellent pb equalling 1.62m places her eighth in the UK rankings. 

The match score was:

1. Swansea H (546.5 points)
2. Rugby & Northants AC (502)
3. Cardiff AAC (484.5)
4. Birchfield H (462.5)
5. Charnwood AC (411)

Cardiff's individual event winners were:

Under 15 boys: James Vincent (800m A, high jump A, long jump B); Ieuan Jones (800m B); Kieran Grimwade (javelin A); Thomas Hanson (shot put A); Joseff Williams (long jump A).

Under 13 boys: Daniel John (800m A - 2:18.03pb).

Under 15 girls: Lauren Evans (75mH A, long jump A, high jump A); Sarah Omoregie (75mH B, shot put A, high jump B); Jessica Wadey (800m B); Annwen Gammon (1500m B); Lois Hillman (pole vault B).

The under 15 girls also won the 4x300m relay.

Cardiff is now placed third overall after two matches and, with two to go, could climb to second and secure a place in the national final. Well done and good luck for the next two rounds.
