NEYDL- Whitley Bay 20/05/18


Report by Helen Jones

Another glorious sunny day in Whitley Bay, I must say I could get used to this weather.

Our team was smaller than our last match because of exam commitments, illness, injury and the usual family occasions.  However this led to an enormous team spirit, everyone encouraging every performance.  People were prepared to have a go at anything intermingled with some spectacular individual performances, resulting in a wonderful day.

Among the many highlights of the day was the breaking (again) of the League Javelin record by Charlie Jefferson. Well done Charlie you will break 50m yet!! Our intensive relay training earlier in the season, ensured we got the baton round and made a decent showing in this area. We had the only pole vaulters of any of the teams. And we had a healthy showing in the girls long jump and many of the throws. In her first High jump competition, Georgia managed to be the last one standing and cleared 1.18m! Well done to all, brilliant effort.

The low lights included me having to spend the day in my slippers having forgotten my trainers!!

January 13th / 14th 2018

Our destination on Saturday was the English institute of Sport in Sheffield for Jordan Thrower to take part in the above championships. Becky Tilley had arrived earlier and already run her heat of the 300m. Becky ran a time of 48.39 but unfortunately this didn’t qualify her for a run in the final. Well done to Becky for representing the club and entering this extremely tough championships. The next day (Sunday) Charlotte Bennett ran in the U17 ladies 800m, her first 800 of her new age group. Charlotte ran really well to run second in her heat in a time of 2-30.93 to qualify for the final, in which she finished 6th. Later on Saturday it was Jordan’s turn to compete in the U17 ladies triple jump. Training had suggested that Jordan was ready for 11m+ in competition. She was not disappointed and opened her competition with 11-05m. Jordan then followed this with identical jumps in rounds two and three of 11-20m a new personal best. Round four saw her shortest jump of the competition of 10-89m. Into the fifth round and the best jump of the series of 11-23m, another PB, which consolidated her silver medal position, 4 cm behind the gold !! Round six produced 10-99, still her fourth best ever jump. An excellent competition, well done Jordan.
