SPRINTERS STAR IN YDL VICTORY
Sale sprinters made a massive contribution to the club’s ninety point win that included gaining victory in five relays as well as recording high ranking individual performances. Jona Efoloko broke his own 200m league record with a 22.2 second clocking and ran anchor leg in two winning relay teams.
Laurelle Obi and Kelly Chadwick both recorded sprint double victories with PB’s which are among the fastest times in the country. Charlotte Mairs was another sprinter to improve her PB by a massive margin to become one of the fastest 75m runners in the UK. Further sprint victories were recorded by Emmanual Odubanjo, Dane Winchole, Daniel Obonine, Ellie Jackson, Maria Mc Polin, Mairead Power, Leyla Nealon, Rebecca Heys and Rhys Parker.
Our U13 girl’s relay team of Lavelle, Charlotte, Lois Mc Tiffin and Tess Mc Hugh won in a new club record time of 54 seconds. The U15 girl’s relay team of Kelly, Rebecca, Ellie and Amy Page remained unbeaten and recorded the fastest time of 51.2 seconds. This was Ellie’s 4th victory of the day.
Another unbeaten Sale team was the U15 girl’s 4 x 300m in which Marie, Mairead and Alexa Mc Tiffen built up a winning lead leaving GB water polo international Niamh Nugent to run the anchor leg. The U15 boy’s relay teams won both relays. Well done to Emmanuel, Jona, Dane, Logan Burrows, Danielo Jarbath and Darnell Bell.
Sale hurdlers again did us proud with Rory Keen, Ellie Jackson, Lois Mc Tiffin, Grace Bower, Tess Mc Hugh and Brogan Rudman all running impressive times
Our stars in the throws events were Olivia Ashworth and Jonathan Adderley who both won their event by huge margins. Further victories went to Ellie Wilson, Rosaleen Sheenan and Emma Lowe.
`The club’s long jumpers were in incredible form with Lois Mc Tiffin, Alice Dale and Rebecca Heys recording new PB’s whilst Brogan Rudman won his event with Meg Mc Hugh runners-up in hers. High jumper Amy Lester and Samuel Ebonine made impressive debuts for the club with Amy winning her event and Samuel finishing runner-up with the same height as the inner.
Our Harrier tradition was upheld in the girl’s middle distance events with Alexa Mc Tiffin running a fast 800m to win by four seconds whilst Francesca Brint improved her time from the last match by ten seconds to win the 1500m. Further victories were recorded by Mia Gibbons and Tia-Rae Barton with Beth Thornton also having a very good race in runner-up slot,
The final words go again to the ‘engine-room’ stalwart team managers Carl Worthington and Dave Marsh. This time they had the additional, unenviable stress of the coach not turning up. It’s further special thanks to all those parents who thought they were just dropping off their kids for the day and found themselves rallying to the call and ferried car-loads to Liverpool; remained for the match and returning them home again. A very big thank you! Thanks also to club photographer Ernie Greenwood. His photos can be viewed and bought at http://www.darkstarphotos.com . The last of the four matches is at Preston on July 19 when we confidently hope to retain the Northern title and qualify for the National finals again in Birmingham on September 6th
