Six medals at Regional Champs for NSAC
A healthy return of six medals for NSAC Athletes at this year’s South West Indoor Track & Field Championships in Cardiff.
Ten athletes attended, plenty of top six finishes and PB’s, and an opportunity to check how the winter training is progressing!
In the Under 17 ladies event, Steph B continued to impress following her Awards evening trophy. Two medals her return for the day including a Gold Medal in the 200m. An impressive time of 26.96 seconds saw her sprint clear of her rivals. Her second medal was a silver, this time in the triple jump with a distance of 10.22m. A near-miss in the 300m, finishing 4th with a time of 43.61 seconds rounded off an impressive day for the talented all-rounder.
Three young men attended the event, and all three contended the 200m. Pick of the bunch was James G who finished 4th in 25.32 seconds, Carlos T just behind in 5th with 25.34, and Adam R 6th in 25.53. James also finished 4th in the 400m with 57.57 seconds
The under-15 boys had two NSAC competitors. Chris R’s first race saw a deserved gold medal in the 300m with 41.27 seconds. A sub-40 a certainty in the summer based on training this winter. George I had a couple of narrow medal misses, a 4th with a solid 1.40m high jump, and a 5th in the 200m in 29.15 seconds
Our sole under-15 girl was rising pole vault star Nyree P. Am excellent leap of 4.52m saw a 6th place finish in what looked to be one of the highest quality events of the day
Two under-13 boys competed in six events between them. Conor H bagged a silver medal in the shot (7.15m), and 6th in the 200m (30.43 seconds, and 6th in the high jump. Teammate Reuben W’s first competition also saw a couple of near-misses. 4th place finishes in the 200m (30.20 seconds) and High Jump (1.11m) and 6th in the Shot (3.80m) a great first effort
The sole under-13 girl was Rosa F. The talented Combined-eventer won the high jump with 1.20m and finished 2nd in the long jump with 3.80m
Day two of this event is after Christmas, and we STRONGLY recommend a big turnout as there are plenty of potential champions and medallists
