Nail biting finish

Wednesday 9 August 2017

With the lead changing through the day and with only the relays and long jump to go, there was only one point separating Cardiff AAC and Cardiff Archers in the final of the Welsh Junior League in Newport on Saturday last, 6th August.

Cardiff AAC was bidding to make it three championships in a row but, in the end, their superior relay teams saw Cardiff Archers take the title with 1131 points against Cardiff AAC's 1092.

The final scores were:

1. Cardiff Archers (1131)
2. Cardiff AAC (1092)
3. Swansea H AC (1074)
4. Rhymney Valley AC (781)
5. Newport H & AC (644)
6. Bridgend AC (589)
7. Pembrokeshire H (577)
8. Carmarthen H (402)

Amongst numerous excellent performances by Cardiff athletes, it was good to see Ben Reynolds back to full form winning the under 15 boys' 1500m by some 75m or more.
