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 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!

Millie Re              U13 Girls                      1200m                      4;16.10 minutes
