West Midlands Young Athletes League - 17th January

Conditions can best be described as horrible, snow and mud – lots of it. All of our young athletes were very brave with freezing cold feet the biggest problem. We had 13 athletes competing. Once again our best team was the U13 boys with all three in the top 40 but special praise to Joe Thompson who finished a very impressive 8th backing up his 4th place in the Warwickshire last week.

Top bravery award goes to our U11 girls who all braved the cold and mud with no complaints.

We had 3 U11 boys with Tom McMillan 76th, Morgan Hill 81st and Joe Harte 98th. Our 4 U11 girls were Ines Villalobos Finigan 43rd (finishing with only one shoe), Lily Smith 88th, Poppy Close 100th and Lucy Heppel 108th.

Our very impressive U13 boys had Joe Thompson 8th and the improving Peter Kippax in 25th and Jamie Cooper improving as well in 37th. Caitlin Harte finished in 96th in the U13 girls, again with a smile despite the conditions.

We had 2 U15 boys with Hugo Villalobos Finigan finishing 35th (despite his fall) and Alex Hickl 69th.

Well done to all and see you at Perry Park on February 14th.
