It was a great team effort at the latest YDL match held in Battersea on Saturday.  So many RPAC athletes with personal best performances!

In the U13 girls there were 1st place finishes  - ALL of which were with a PB!  - for Charlotte Pelekani A race 70mH, Phoebe Bakker B race 70mH, Lilah Unwin A race 800m,  Shakila Keable A race 1200m and Alessia Turner B race 1200m. For Shakila, posting a sub 4 min 1200m lifted her into illustrious company as only the third RPAC girl to achieve this. For Alessia there was also a big PB in taking 2nd place in the long jump where she jumped 4.06m. Lily Woodhams and Imogen Wheeler both PB'd in their 150m races. Several competed in two or three different events helping boost the team score.  At the end of a long hot day of athletics, Alessia Turner, Sophia Bryant, Tiggy Boyce and Imogen Wheeler ran a fast 4 x 100m U13G's relay securing a 2nd place finish. For some, this was their fourth event.

The U13 boys were also clocking up personal best performances.  Justin Collins had 3  -  100m, 200m and in the  high jump with an excellent 1m. 30 clearance. Harry Peters picked up PB's in the 75mH and 200m, Sunny Boyce in the Shot and the Javelin.  Max Orchard in his first YDL appearance had a long jump PB and ran a good first ever 800m to take 3rd place in the A race. In the 1500m there was a big PB in taking 2nd place in the A race for Sammy Rolaston. 

More happy faces amongst the U15 girls where they all achieved best ever performances! Caitlin Holloway had three, 300m, Shot and Discus. Eva Marsh has had a great season and improved both her 1500m and long jump bests while others to double up were Iris McAuliffe with PB'S in her 100m race and in the Shot, Francesca Manrow who PB'D in the 200 and the 300m races, and Zara Watkinson in the 800m and Javelin! In the U15G'S 800m Imogen Gregory took a full 18 seconds off her PB!

Another who has been improving his times all summer is U15B Oscar Curry.  Oscar won the A race 800m with yet another PB finishing in a speedy 2.12.80.

The fourth and final Lower Age group YDL match is scheduled  for Saturday 20th July. This was to be held at the Wimbledon Park Stadium but now seems likely to be switched to the home track of Herne Hill Harriers in Tooting. Confirmation in due course.
