The first event that TBH took part in was the U13 shot putt, with Harry Snaith’s first ever attempt at this event. After a shaky couple of no-throws, he sorted his technique out enough to claim the U13 boy’s outdoor shot record, with a putt of 4.50m
We had 5 athletes in the next event which was the 200m. Chloe Baptista-Davenport claimed the U15 girls record with her first ever track race, in a time of 33.96s. Zak Kettle also claimed the vacant U15 boys record with a time of 32.77s. We had 3 U13 boys racing, with Harry Snaith and Jake Moir having a very fiercely fought battle, with Jake just nudging ahead to claim the U13 boys record in 33.37s with Harry posting a time of 33.83s and Luis Nichol in his first ever track event finishing in 38.96s.
Finally, we had 7 athletes in the 1500m event with some great results. David Carr ran the fastest TBH time of the night, but the windy conditions probably cost him a PB as he was less than 3 seconds down on his first attempt at the distance at the NECAA championships, coming over the line in 5:26.74. In the same heat, Jake Moir was also just short of his PB, missing out by 1 second in a time of 5:50.19. In the next heat, U13 boys Harry Snaith and Luis Nichol both set PBs for themselves with it being their first attempt at the distance in times of 6:00.98 and 6:52.69 respectively. Zak Kettle also set a PB in his first running of this distance in a time of 5:28.41. We had 2 U15 girls racing, with Hope Moir claiming the girls record for the distance in a time of 6:28.59 and Nina Hirt setting a PB of 7:11.88 in her first ever track race.
Food report is fairly poor, as I forgot to sort anything to take with us, but we had Quorn mince spaghetti bolognese when we got back. Apologies to Ian Pickett for all the new record updates from this fixture, it was a fantastic evening of racing, PBs and club records, hopefully we can build on that at the next NEGP fixture.
