Cheshire Relay Champions
Sale sent a number of girl's teams to the Cheshire Relay Championships where they met with great success despite stiff competition from ten other clubs. Our teams finished first in two races and runners-up in three more. A well-drilled U13 team of Aimee Page, Rebecca Heys, Tia Blisset and Maria Mc Polin won the sprint relay with some slick baton changing.
In the U15 sprint relay, there was little between the top four teams until the last leg when Amy Williams had a brilliant run to take the championship for Sale and win gold medals for herself and fellow team members Charlotte Worthington, Isobel Reynolds-Duffy and Anabel Kitchen. Amy, Charlotte and Isobel then teamed up with Mattie Yates to win silver medals in the medley relay.
In the U15 3 x 800m relay, the Sale team of Flora Whyte, Hannah Simeen and Catherine Podmore finished runners up to a strong Warrington squad in a race involving eleven teams. Sale were also silver medallists in the U11 3 x 600m relay despite managing to drop the baton at one change-over with Poppy Glasby-Seddon, Beth Thornton and Lizzie Twite runners up to a powerful squad from local rivals Manchester Harriers.
A special thanks to team manager Carl Worthington without whom this team success would not have been possible.
