CROSSFORD TRACK MEETS
This weekend the second of two young athlete medal meets were held at Crossford Bridge. In the U9 girls, Suvi Seppanen won six medals including three gold’s over the two meetings. Thea Brown won both sprints at the first meet whilst Nancy Pickles won the 600m race by big margins in both meets.
In the U9 boys Daniel Abbott was our star athlete with three sprint gold’s over the two meetings. Other gold medal winners were Oliver Macey and Daniel Harrison whilst Joshua Stutchfield who won two silvers.
In the U11 girls Lucy Herbert ran a super fast time of 15.4 seconds to win the 100m in meet one whilst Ailsa Stewart, Imogen Pickles and Dids Parish were also awarded medals in sprint events. Isabelle Burke improved her 800m time by eight seconds to run an incredible 2:41.00 in silver medal position whilst the 800m performances of Taylor Edwards, Libby Hill, Hermione Mason and Nieve Barton suggest we can regain the Manchester Area Cross-Country league girls U11 title we lost to Salford AC last winter. Medallists in field events included Lauren Gilbert, Gabrielle Cuming, Shona Wilkinson and Isabelle Burke.
Our successful athlete over the two meetings was Luke Talbot who won four gold’s in his six medal total in U11 boy’s events. Tom Boyd also showed great versatility across a range of events winning three gold’s in his five medal total. The 800m performances of Luke, Tom, Jack Spark, Harry Edmundson, Archie Mc Carron and Harvey Devenport indicate this is a team that can win our first ever boy’s U11 team title in the Manchester Area Cross-Country League next winter. Other individual medallists included Harvey, Jack, Harry, William Parker and Daniel Heys.
Over the two meetings the U13 girls have been the most successful squad with nine gold’s – Ella Wilson (100 & LJ), Ruby Bell (200 & 800), Megan Greenway (100), Poppy Glasby-Seddon (200m), Anouska Brooks (800), Scarlett Whittaker (Shot) and Ella Marshall (Shot). Other individual medallists included Sofija Dragisic-Wood, Melissa Booth and Sara Bayan.
The U13 boys were equally successful winning ten gold medals including Sam Worthington (3 golds) and William Unsworth (2 golds). Our other medallists were Jed Bailey (gold), Zac Gaillamin (gold), Pearse Thorgaard (gold), Jacob Currie (gold), Anton Coleman (gold), Sam Brown (silver), John Lewis (silver), Alex James (bronze), Joseph Herbert (bronze) and Dominic Reid (bronze).
