PB fever at Grimsby.
By Jake Darby
12 Personal bests across team Spen at the second upper YDL.
Once again we started the day with great results; Molly Waring
started the 400m hurdles with a win but unfortunately injured herself ruling herself out of any further events. Then came three first places in the hammer throw for Jake Darby
, Mason Smith
and Connor Bell
. Followed up by a pb performance and a second place for Olivia Reah
in the 300m hurdles.
And the pb’s kept coming, Laura Sweeney
gained two pb’s from the 200 metres and the shot putt as well as good run in the 300 metres. Mia Butler
also gained a pb in the 100 metres before she unfortunately got injured in the steeple chase. Madison Nash
ran two good races in the 100 and 200 metres. Hannah McQuinn
had a first try at the 800m and 1500m with two impressive runs as well as an impressive long jump. Emily Waring
balanced revision with throwing to have two inspiring rounds of throwing in the javelin and the discus. Olivia Reah
followed up on 300m hurdles with a super run in the 300 metres and a good triple jump until the relay pulled her away so she wasn’t allowed her further jumps. The under 17 girls relay team consisting of Nash
got the baton round faultlessly.
Onto the under 17 men where the pb’s were still coming in strong, Jacob Pollard
got a pb in the 100 metres as well as notable results in the 200 metres and the long jump. Daniel Smith
continued the pb fever with two pb’s with on in the 400 metres and one in the shot putt. This then carried on for Connor Bell
who won the discus and finished second in the shot putt with a pb following on from his hammer win. Ben Wilson
ran a strong race in the 100 metres but he too unfortunately ended up with an injury ruling him out of further events.
The under 20 women faced the loss of Molly
meaning we were down to Charlotte Bell
, who did her part by Winning the shot with a pb, won the hammer and the discus as well as finishing third in the javelin with another pb.
The under 20 men’s followed two hammer wins with Mason smith
striking runs in the 200 metres and the 400 metres. Jake Darby
followed a hammer win with a win in the shot and discus with a pb in each as well as a third place in the javelin. The mixed under 17 and 20 relay team of Darby
got the baton round faultlessly in second.
