TSB Track Competition

June 21, 2013

Noadswood athletes continue their success on the Athletics Track at the Hampshire Youth Games at the Aldershot Stadium on Friday 21st June.  After bringing 6 trophies home from the New Forest Track and Field championships in May, the U15 boys and U13 girls made it through to the Final of the TSB Track Competition.

Despite the heavy rain the athletes rose to the challenge, breaking many a PB by sheer determination. There were notable performances from all athletes but, in particular, Beth Wilcock  who won the A String 150m event, came second in the A string  1000m event and bought the baton home to come second in the relay. Sarah Goulding was also in the relay team and came 3rd in the 150m and won the B String 1000m event.

The U15 boys team really excelled in the 1500m with the A and B string runners all competing in the same race. Sergio Adamov put in brilliant performance to claim 3rd place overall beating a number of A string runners along the way. The pinnacle of the performances had to go to Alex Forster who as a Year 8 pupil was competing against boys a year older and still raced away into a comfortable victory.

The U13 girls came second overall, an amazing achievement and all went home proudly wearing their medals.
