Har­ri­ers fight op­po­si­tion and heat to take third place

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

CHILTERN Har­ri­ers’ U13s and U15s put in another great ef­fort in the fi­nal match of the Youth De­vel­op­ment Lower Age Group League at Hemel Hemp­stead on Satur­day.

The team fought hard in very warm con­di­tions against seven other clubs to fin­ish nar­rowly third on the day and con­firm over­all sec­ond in the fi­nal league ta­ble, be­hind Bed­ford & County AC.

The strength in depth of the U15 boys counted again as they churned out points through­out the af­ter­noon, start­ing with Cameron Reid’s A-string win in the 800m and sec­ond place in the 300m, plus B-string wins for Thomas Job in the 1500m and Phoenix Everiss in the javelin.

An­gus Wil­liams was sec­ond in the A-string 1500m, as was Alex Al­dred in the B-string 800m, while Reid, Al­dred, Alex Burn and Felix Hale ran a scorch­ing 2.47.5 in the 4x300m re­lay, only to be nar­rowly pipped to the line by a fast Bed­ford quar­tet.

The U15 girls have worked hard this sea­son and there was an en­joy­able dou­ble win in the high jump for Lily Holt (1.43m) and So­rya Lock­wood (1.30m), while Emily Alder­son won the B-string 800m in a per­sonal best (PB) of 2.30.0.

Nathan Hack­ley ran a su­perb PB to win the U13 boys 800m in 2.16.9, while Gabriel Baker won the B string 800m, and for the U13 girls, Laura Wil­liams and Ji­naan Lock­wood gained a dou­ble win in the 1200m, with Laura win­ning the A-string in a per­sonal best of 4.11.6. Orla Wil­lams and Katie Rep­per were also in PB form in the 800m, both girls com­ing sec­ond, in 2.29.0 and 2.42.9 re­spec­tively, while Rachel Burn made an im­pres­sive de­but, win­ning the A-string shot with 7.55m.

Chiltern also re­ceived the max­i­mum points avail­able in each match for hav­ing a full com­ple­ment of of­fi­cials, thanks to field judge Mar­tyn Cartwright, track judge Anne Un­der­wood and time­keeper Doug Smith.
