A long trip to Ware in Hertfordshire didn't put off a good contingent of athletes from RPAC for the 2nd match in this season's YDL.

There were plenty of PB's, several 1st place finishes and a couple of athletes competing for the first time. 

Barton Carter had another good day to follow up after his medal success at the recent Surrey Championships.  He came 1st in the U15B'S long jump and scored heavily for the team by adding 3rd place finishes in both the 100 and 200m races, achieving PB's in each! Rudi Haylock was in good form too, equalling his PB in winning the high jump with 1m55 and then coming 1st in both the B string long jump and 200m. Rudi's long jump was a new PB. Also in the U15B'S,  Oscar Curry had 2nd place finishes in the 300 and the 800m races posting fast times in each.

Our U15G'S both scored well by competing in three events each. Francesca Manrow won the discus, came 2nd in the 300m with a PB and was 4th in the 200m. Caitlin Holloway  had a PB in finishing 2nd in her 300m race and threw well in both the discus and the shot.

Imogen Wheeler had a great day! Three events and three PB's! Imogen came 2nd in the U13G'S long jump with 3m 73 and was speedy in both the 75 and the 150m races. Charlotte Pelekani scored heavily for the team in her first appearance taking 2nd place in her long jump competition and having 3rd place finishes in both her 75 and 150m races. Tiggy Boyce also in her first appearance ran a great 800m to finish in 2nd place by a fraction of a second, but in doing so took maximim points as the winner of the B string. (A and B runners competed in the same race). Pollyanne Stott finished the race in 1st place to also pick up maximum points. Both girls then ran well in the 75m sprint. Completing our contingent of U13G'S,  late in the afternoon it was Shakila Keable's turn in the 1200m where,  despite having to run on her own at the front throughout, Shakila won in a time of 4.01.9. This time is in the top 25 in the UK currently and ranks her 3rd in the club records for U13G'S 1200m.

Justin Collins as ever turned out in three events and was rewarded with a PB in his U13B'S 75mH race. Justin also competed well in the 100m and in the high jump. A first outing for Sunny Boyce saw him also competing well in the 100m and Javelin. 

Thanks go to Ivan Barratt and Ashley Burridge for officiating all day and to David Manrow for managing the team. 

The next YDL match for U13,  U15 boys and girls is on Saturday 22nd June in Battersea.
