Saturday 5th June 2021 National Youth Development League Kingston - by David Mills

The first Track and Field league match of the year took place in Kingston on Saturday in warm and sunny conditions. RPAC took a team of U15 and U13 boys and girls to compete against five other strong clubs in the National Youth Development League and all our athletes acquitted themselves well with several outstanding performances.

A truncated timetable to keep numbers manageable in these post lockdown days meant a number of the usual events weren't available so some of our athletes missed out. Some non scoring results are yet to be posted.

There was heavy point scoring for the team from our two speedsters in the U13 boys with Max Orchard and Michael Maguire winning the 75m A and B races respectively and each by some distance! For Max it meant another club record with his time of 10.0 also seeing him 2nd fastest in the UK at the time of writing! Michael's time of 10.4 was a PB and moves him up to 7th in the UK rankings.

Both boys also competed in the long jump with Max winning the A competition and Michael winning the B. An outstanding afternoon for both boys!

They were joined in the 4 x 100m relay by Ethan Else and Stanley Phillips, and the team stormed home in 1st place.

Reigate Priory AC's U13 1200m  runners before their races

Another U13B'S club record fell in the 1200m with Buddy Kedgley finishing 2nd in 4.00.8. Stanley Phillips ran a good 1200m too, finishing 3rd in the B string with Ethan Else performing strongly as a non scorer.

Eve Goulding ran a new PB in the U13 girls 75m with a quick time of 10.8. Good points were added by Sophia Potter in the 75m (PB!), the 1200m and long jump and their were good performances in the 1200m too from Kaia Hessey and Neve MacGregor.

Kaia, Sophia, Kyra Pemberton and Eve finished 5th in the 4 x 100m relay.

In the U15 match, there were maximum points scored in the boys 800m with Samuel Stapley running strongly to take 1st place by a considerable distance with a new PB of 2.07.1. This moves Samuel up to 16th in the UK rankings. 1st place in the B race went to Joel Lawrence with a good time of 2.23.7 in his first competitive 800m.

Imogen Wheeler was 2nd in the 100m with another PB, a quick 13.2.

The girls 800m saw strong performances from Ella Scrase, 2nd in the A race with a huge PB, a fast 2.29.6, and Sophia Bryant 2nd in the B string with another quick time of 2.34.0.

With the 800m places filled, Cara Koutzaroff-Richards and Imogen Abrahams stepped in to race in the 300m and both girls ran well to each finish 4th in the A and B strings respectively, both new PB's, and scoring good points for the team.

Milo Sears finished 4th in his first 300m with a good time of 43.2.

Many thanks go to the ever dependable RPAC qualified Officials, Ashley, Naomi and Ivan for helping make the competition possible, and to Mike Gent for helping with the offiating at several of the events.

The next YDL match for U15/U13 is in Guildford on Saturday 17th July when a full timetable of events is expected.

RPAC finished in 5th place on the day with two more fixtures to come.


English Schools T&F Championships

Lilah Unwin ran two more qualifying times in the 800m for the English Schools T&F Championships being held in Manchester in July with fast races at Worthing and Milton Keynes in the last week. Lilah goes again this Wednesday evening at the Linford Christie Stadium in a British Milers Club Regional Race.

The Surrey team for the Championships will be selected after the trials being held in Kingston this Saturday. Good luck to all our athletes taking part in the trials which in addition to Lilah include Samuel Stapley in the Junior Boys 800m and Oscar Curry in the Intermediate Boys 800m.
