On Monday 14th June Tilsley Park will be closed due to a veteran’s league match taking place on this date. Please check with your coach to see if an alternative training session has been arranged.
An outstanding team performance bounced Radley’s men’s team back to the top.
Having won the first fixture and struggled on their trip to Plymouth for the second, it was great that Radley bounced back with an impressive win in their Division 3 fixture at Swindon beating 2nd placed Team Kennet by 32 points!
Radley athletes impressively won 24 of the 33 events on the day, dropping only 13 points during the whole day.
The Southern Women's league A Team match on the 26th June is at Portsmouth and not Tonbridge as displayed on the fixture list. Can people please pass on this massage to athletes who do not know about this amendment.
Radley Women's B Team had the long journey to North Devon on Saturday for their 2nd Southern Women’s League Div 1 match. Even though a few athletes short, the team proved that it was still scoring the high points, finishing the day 4th out of ten.
Sunday 16th May saw the second round of the NYAL at Tilsley Park. On a cold and later wet day, Radley went up against Milton Keynes and Bicester/Banbury. The day saw a close fought match against Milton Keynes and delivered some outstanding performances from Radley Athletes.
For the U13 girls Alex Cross provided a 1.50m High Jump, Haley Perrin a 5.06m Long Jump for the U15 girls and Megan Humphries a 2.31.1 800m for the U13 girls - all Grade 1 performances.
A very small team of just 7 Radley athletes made the long trip to Plymouth for the 2nd SML fixture of the season.
Despite the small numbers the team sprit was high and the team valiantly covered as many events as they could. Unfortunately competing against the top 3 teams in the league after the first fixture meant that the competition was fierce and Radley could do no more finish in 4th place, but just a few points behind 3rd.
Led by Alexandra Cross, Radley won medals galore in the Oxon and Bucks Championships at Horspath on Saturday and Sunday. Radley stole the show with more than 40 county champions across a multitude of age groups.
Cross had three outstanding wins in the under 13 girls category. She won the 100m in a championship record of 13.32secs and the 70m hurdles in 13.11. She then equalled the long standing high jump best of 1.45m – a record that has stood since 1979.
Radley make a splash at the start of the season in the National Young Athletes League last Sunday by convincingly winning their first NYAL match.
We had a tremendous turnout from the athletes who competed, not only in their specialised events, but also filled other events in their age groups. Notably Jess East and Katharina Clitherow who both ran the 3000m and the 1500m and 800m respectively, Kieran Webb and Adam Breslin who ran the 1500m and the 1500m steeplechase.
Lizzie Terry achieved personal bests in both the 100m and 200m.
