NSAC top the table!

A fantastic summer culminated with North Somerset Athletic Club deservedly being crowned Champions of the Avon Track & Field League. After a 4-year gap where the title was swapped between Team Bath and Yate, NSAC officials, team managers and athletes came together to create a strong team and win a thrilling final fixture. Events at Yate, Filton and two at Gloucester across the full range of events, and age categories (Athletes age 9-57 competed for NSAC this year!)

Head Chris Millard commented “A terrific effort by all to secure the win. We are known for our great team ethos, and this year it has really shown. Athletes performing well at their chosen events, and then pitching in to score points in less familiar ones. Also, many athletes stepping up age groups just to ensure we have well balanced teams. We are looking forward to a strong Cross-Country showing in the winter, and then building on this year’s success”

As always, new members always welcome and we are ESPECIALLY keen to hear from anyone who would like to join our amazing team of volunteers (Coaching, Officiating, help of any sort!) www.nsac.org.uk
