Avon League – Defending The Title

After the frustration of fixture 3, a win against Yate of over 150 points was required to leapfrog them into first place. Even the most optimistic would have frowned at the prospect. BUT thanks to (yet) another massive team effort, the event saw NSAC win by 296 (Team Bath 2nd, and Yate a further 40 points further back). So this means that NSAC retain their League Title, and also swept up a number of age group titles. A massive thank you and well done to everyone involved – the athletes, team managers, officials, parents etc. The NSAC ethos of teamwork continues to reap rewards.

Avon League Round Four Preview

North Somerset AC thought they were sitting pretty at the top of the Avon League with one fixture remaining, but thanks to confusion due to torrential rain, they now sit second behind Yate & District. The final fixture at Yate this weekend. Looks unlikely NSAC will overturn a 150+ point deficit, but you never know!

The first three fixtures have seen one 1st place finish, and two 2nd place finishes.
The under-11 Quadkids team currently lie in 3rd place, with a great chance of finishing 2nd.

FIXTURE 1 – GLOUCESTER
Yate showed their intent by winning the first fixture of the season by over 150 points. The gap between NSAC (2nd) and 3rd place Bath was a comfortable 80+ points. Winners on the day;

FIXTURE 3
What a day! Torrential rain bad enough to stop the pole vault, numbers so wet they were illegible (or just plain fell off!) Added to that the confusion of the final result. At the end of play, NSAC appeared to be 80 points ahead of Yate & District. However, when the provisional results were sent out Yate had won by just 1 point! After scrutinising the results it appeared that around 8 NSAC athletes had not been added (due to weather/number problem) and this once again meant a win for NSAC, before Yate also located areas for correction! So with one match to go Yate are back on top, but expecting an NSAC backlash! The final fixture promises to be epic!

Winners on the day;

Millie Re              U13 Girls                      1200m                      4;16.10 minutes

Midland Road Relays at Sutton Park

A beautiful day in Sutton Park was the backdrop for a great day at the Midland Road Relays.

First order of the day was the Under-15 Boys, beginning with Ollie C who ran a strong leg (13:28mins) to put the team in 10th place. He was followed up by Will M who overtook four people to place the team in 4th (14:13mins), handing over to Louie B. Louie ran a heroic final leg, bringing the team home in a very respectable 5th place.

Our other (incomplete!) Under-15 Boys team was led off by Sam H, who ran a fantastic leg (14:19mins) to bring the team in 21st, handing over to Ollie A who ran 15:15mins to overtake two people and bring the team in after the second leg in 19th place. 

Next up the Under-17 Boys Ollie L had a fantastic run on first leg, bringing the team in in 6th place with a fantastic time of 12:28mins.  He was followed by Ben H, who set off in pursuit of top three and brought the team in 4th place with a time of 13:01mins.  Alfie set off trying to bring that medal home but, following a week of illness, didn’t have enough in him on the day. He ran a time of 12:56mins , and they finished a great 4th place overall.

Our second Under-17 Team started with Jamie VDV, who finished the first leg in 24th place. His time of 13:51mins is a fantastic improvement from last year by nearly 2 minutes! Max D raised the team three places, finishing in 21st with a time of 14:02mins. This again represents a massive improvement from last year. Callum D brought the team home in 21st place running a time of 15:04mins.

Then came Endurance Coach Julian and the Under-20s who have to run in the seniors. They finished in 42nd place out of 100+ teams. Julian ran leg 1, Sam G on two then Will C on three, Jack W on fourth, Kes P in fifth then Matt H bought  the team home in a fantastic 42nd place and the fastest time in the team of 19:47mins.

A fantastic day had by all, some wonderful performances and what a great start to the Cross Country and Road Running Season!

Thursday Cancelled!!

I yesterday received a ‘reminder’ from Clevedon Sports Centre that Clevedon School have an Open evening this Thursday 3rd October (The first I had heard of it!)

We are not allowed on the School site, and looking at the weather, a change of venue to seafront is not an option due to the weather (no shelter, wet grass etc)

Reluctantly I am having to cancel this week’s session and re-commence next Thursday 10th October, as usual.

NSAC AGM Notice – Your Invitation to Hear About Your Child’s Opportunities in the Next Twelve Months!

The following are the list of activities available at the Clevedon Site/Seafront during the winter months, with descriptions. Anyone School Year 7+ is welcome. For the technical events (throws, jumps, hurdles) you can attend these sessions PROVIDING you either have competed for NSAC, or intend doing so. It is important our Coaches have time to focus on athletes who wish to represent NSAC.

We are especially keen for athletes to spend time working on throws during the winter so we can maximise our potential in this area.

All sessions at Clevedon School, unless indicated otherwise.

Youth Development League Round-Up

Its been an exceptional year for the Club’s Track & field teams. Both the Lower Age group (under 13 and under 15) and the Upper Age group progressed to the Regional play-offs. Whilst both narrowly missed out on promotion, an amazing effort.

YDL LAG @ SWINDON
What a high level event this was. Seven teams going hammer and tongs, the positions changing almost every event! In the end the team from NSAC missed out on promotion by just 41 points (with a total of 484). A great day’s athletics, and as usual superb support for the young athletes from NSAC Officials, Team managers and parents. Winners on the day (SOOO many 2nd and 3rd places!);

The management team very excited to note that next year sees around 20 Year 9 athletes added to the squad, which should make NSAC even more competitive for the 2020 season!

 

Youth Development League Upper Age Group at Cheltenham

An amazing season for NSAC continues. NSAC have formed part of Team Avon for many years, but a decision was made to develop a stand-alone team for the 2019 season, as the next step in the development of the Club. Aiming to give athletes more opportunities to compete, and to continue the ethos and camaraderie that has been the trademark of the club. Its fair to say that the first season was anticipated as being a gentle introduction, it has proved to be anything but!

With the brilliant efforts of athletes, team managers, officials and parents, NSAC have delivered strong teams for all 3 fixtures (Aberdare, Hereford, and for the final event, at Cheltenham. The result, a quite outstanding 2nd place finish in the League, beating Team South Wales and Team East Wales, to name but two, and losing out only to the extremely strong Cheltenham Club.

Winners at the final event in Cheltenham;

Sam G               U20 400m A                                          52.3 seconds

NSAC Summer Festival Round Up

A beautiful summer’s day welcomed the athletes to Clevedon School to celebrate 15 years of athletics excellence from North Somerset AC. Started up by Chris Millard in 2004 who recognised a lack of the sport in the area. NSAC now claim to be the largest junior Athletic Club in the Country, have won many awards (England Athletics UK Development Club of the Year 2011, South West Athletics/Running Club of the Year 2018), topped many Track & Field Leagues South West, Avon, YDL LAG), seen the Endurance squad smashing their way to many individual and team victories, and generally gained plaudits from far and wide for the structure and ethos.

It was fitting then that the celebration should see a variety of activities, from the ‘standard’ Sports day in the morning to the ‘World record attempt’, ‘1k any way’ and ‘old-fashioned challenge-your-parents’ Sports day in the afternoon, all in and around the new polymeric training area designed, developed and purchased by NSAC (with support from Clevedon School).

AFTERNOON REPORT
Children and parents competing side-by-side was the theme of the afternoon. Watching them compete in Lightning Strike (Red/Blue), wheelbarrow races, timing gates, leapfrog races, egg and spoon. Crocodile Game etc an amazing spectacle.

   

     

A MASSIVE THANK YOU TO OUR SPONSORS, JON AND JENNY, ONCE AGAIN ATTENDING AND BRINGING A VERY GENEROUS CHEQUE WITH THEM.

 

YDL Lower Age Group @ Neath

North Somerset AC secured the League title with a convincing victory in South Wales. Even more impressive as all events have to played ‘away’ due to a lack of facility within the area, and all have been won (Aberdare, Hereford, and now Neath).

The day was gusty, and eventually rainy, but some amazing performances from the young athletes meant the result was never in doubt. As always, a massive thank you to Athletes, team managers, officials and parents for their organising, enthusiasm and support. Outstanding!

Next stop is Swindon, promotion match against the top clubs from South West & South Wales…

YDL Upper Age Group at Aberdare

This looks like the perfect league for the newly-formed u17 and u20 teams. Another second place finish looks like securing the runner-up spot this season behind a strong Cheltenham team.

YDL Aberdare

What a privilege to be able to observe the young athletes of NSAC compete so competently in this wonderful environment. 39 young athletes travelled to this brand new facility in Aberdare, and strengthened their grip at the top of the table with a comprehensive victory.

As always the team managers organised, arranged, tweaked and cajoled the athletes, aiming to get the best combinations to ensure success. As always, the athletes stepped forwards and delivered. Five of the six relays were won by NSAC, showing the importance, and rewarding the time spent emphasising the changeovers. Great to see so many debutantes, not only getting involved, but also contributing massively to the points tally and overall result

The under-13 girls (Year 6 & 7) were represented by 9 athletes.
Running her first event of the season, Eloise E finished 2nd in her 75m sprint with 10.7 seconds, and 2nd in the 800m with 2;51.7 seconds. 
Chloe L-C supported amazingly, finishing 3rd in her 75m with 11.6 seconds, and 4th in the 150m with 23.3 seconds. Ellie S looks to be a talent in the making, running 75m in 11.5 seconds (2nd), 150m in 23.0 seconds (3rd) and 1st in Long jump (3.69m). Lyla B continues her impressive climb up the ladder with a 2nd in the 800m (2;44.7 minutes), 3rd in shot (5.50m) and 1st in Javelin (10.94m). Harriet B is proving to be extremely versatile, running 1200m in 4;27.4 (3rd) and finishing 5th in javelin (12.70m). Emily’s first event of the season also shows promise, a 1st place 4;47.5 minutes for the 1200m.
Combined eventer Rosa F continues to amass points for the team, a 2nd place in the 70m hurdles (13.7 seconds), 2nd in high jump (1.20m) and 2nd in Long Jump (4.15m). Hannah B, a talented discus and hammer thrower (neither are on the program for this age group), supported the team with a 3rd place shot (5.03m). The girls then finished the day with a 60.1 seconds to win their event.

10 under-15 girls (Year 8 & 9) competed; Olivia Y’s speed continues to impress, with a 4th place 100m (13.8 seconds), a 3rd place 200m (29.1 seconds)and a 4th place finish in the 75m hurdles (15.2 seconds). Bonita W showed her versatility with a 2nd place 100m (13.9 seconds),a 1st place in the javelin (19.39m)and a hammer throw of 17.26m for 5th. Holly G’s first event of the year was a huge success, a 2nd place finish in the 100m (13.9 seconds) and a 1st in the 75m hurdles (15.8 seconds).
A
nother debutante, Caitlin K ran the tough 200m/300m double, finishing 2nd in both (29.9 seconds for 200m, and 50.5 seconds for the 300m). Quality middle-distance runner Keira D returned to the team, comfortably winning the 800m (2;26.2 minutes), and offering superb extra support in the Long Jump (3rd in 4.03m) and 2nd in the 300m (45.1 seconds). Abi B won her 800m race in 2;47.7  minutes, and is not far away from a pole vault debut as training looks promising!
Hanna W, another first-timer, won her high jump with 1.15m, and 4th in the 1500m (6;10.3 minutes).  The combination of speed and bounce always helps when Lily W competes. She was rewarded with a 2nd place in the long jump (3.94m) and a 4th in the high Jump (1.20m). South West Shot Champion Maisie J comfortably won the shot with 9.62m, and then also won the discus with 19.62m, She topped her day off with a  2nd place finish in the Javelin with 25.36m. Relatively new to the Club, but someone who may well figure Regionally, Freya H won the discus with 23.82,and then the shot with 7.58m. Both relay teams won their events, the 4x100m in 55.0 seconds,and 4x300m with 3;24.8 minutes.

An amazing effort by the under-13 boys, with 13 young athletes attending; debutante Ollie H won his 100m (14.3 seconds), then followed this up with 2nd in long jump (3.93m) and 2nd in the 200m (29.7 seconds). Another new face, Leo E, backed Ollie up brilliantly with 2nd place finishes in the 100m (14.8 seconds) and Long Jump (3.05m). Oliver S, also new, finished 2nd in his 100m with 15.4 seconds. Peter B finished 3rd in his 100m with 18.2 seconds. Elliot J has raised eyebrows this year, and he did so once again, winning the 800m with 2;31.3 seconds, and 2nd in the 200m (30.3 seconds).
Cross-Country season brought Joel to everyone’s attention. On the track, he won his 800m (2;42.7minutes) then finished 3rd in high jump (1.05m). Joseph S was 1st in his 800m (2;49.4 minutes) and 2nd in shot (4.14m). Zeki H, another cross-country convert, finished 2nd in his 800m (2;50.2 minutes). Also a 1st in the 75m hurdles with 17.1 seconds. Patrick H, yet another who impressed in the fields during winter, finished 2nd in the 1500m (5;20.3minutes). Harry S, first-time competitor, won his 1500m with 5;54.1 minutes. Impressive Conor H looks comfortable in any event, winning the 75m hurdles with 15.4 seconds, the javelin (19.79m)and then 3rd in the high jump (1.25m). Great to see Ben G-R getting involved, winning the shot with 6.64m, and then 3rd in the javelin 10.27m.
The 4x100m relay won their race with some smooth changeovers, in 58.4seconds.

 With just 7 athletes available for the under-15 boys team, this could have been a problem. However, all boys stepped up, and scored plenty of ‘extra’ points in unfamiliar events.
Chris R had a busy day, 2nd place in the 100m (12.2 seconds), and the 200m (25.3 seconds) and 300m (40.4 seconds),high quality runs in all events. Joseph P, another ‘newbie’ made a huge impression.  He achieved 1st in the 200m (26.2 seconds) and the 300m (40.2 seconds) and 3rd in the long jump, this was indeed an impressive debut. Ollie C is always ultra-competitive, and a 2nd place in the 800m (2;13.8 minutes) was backed-up with a discus victory (14.27m). Will M looks to have found his distance, with a well-judged 800m win in 2;19.6 minutes a pleasing result.
Will S had a busy afternoon. An 800m win (2;33.2 minutes), a 4th in the javelin (17.33m) and a 6th in the javelin (17.33m) scores plenty of points for the team. Always willing to help out, Louie B is a favourite to many. A 4th in his preferred event 1500m (4;51.2 minutes) was followed by a 1st in High Jump (1.25m) and a 2nd place in the javelin (6.20m). Oliver A is always near the top, no matter what event you throw him into! A 2nd in the high jump (1.56m), a 2nd in the 1500m (5;05.1 minutes) and a 5th in the discus (15.76m).

The 4x300m relay team not only won their event (2;49.2 minutes), but also the Club record!
The 4x100m relay team finished 2nd with 55.4 seconds.

A great day had by all, and some well-earned results from Athletes who have worked hard all winter… reaping the rewards of their hard work!
