BAL MATCH 1 ETON
Sale face an uphill battle to retain the British League title after finishing last in the opening fixture at Eton, but the commitment shown on this sweltering Saturday keeps it well within the realms of possibility.
The trip down south this early in the season thinned out the squad, but its early days and two key positives stand out.
Strong performances in the sprints saw Aaron Crowley claim second in the 100m ‘A’ & 200m ‘B’ races, whilst Jonah Efoloko, just 16, cruised to victory in his BAL debut with an impressive 10.69.
With high calibre athletes dropping out of other events, several Sale athletes showed their dedication by committing to a busy afternoon.
This list included Alex Wort (5 events), Callum Roughneen & Callum Browne (4), James Bailey & Aaron Crowley (3) and me, Alan White, Andrew Burgess & Jonah Efoloko (2).
Learn the lessons, take the positives and look forward. The next match is on home turf at SportCity, giving Sale a great chance to get the season moving and dominate the fixture. Clear those diaries.
