Stevenage Youngster Turn up the Heat!


Wednesday 13th July 2022

No shade, wall to wall sunshine, copious water intake and constant applications of suntan cream saw SNHACs young athletes enjoy an emphatic win at Cambridge on Sunday. The Club scored 638 points with Bedford and County in second with 376, Cambridge & Coleridge finished third. Full results on the website. Special thanks to the Club’s Officials Rhona Foster Track, Mike Gregory Timekeeper, Steve Feely and Dani Mainstone Field who spent 5 hours officiating in the heat, assisted by Paul and Caroline Keeble and those parents who volunteered to help. Orange and Black vests dominated with athletes recording 20 A string wins, 25 B string wins and winning 4 out of the 6 relays. Success followed success with personal best performances coming in nearly every event. U15 athletes Francesca Hart – 200m, 80H, LJ and Lily Cotter – SP, DT, HT moved up to U17 to support their team-mates (both recording PB’s in their chosen events) while Abigail Manson and Imogen Rose decided to run both the 800 & 1500m, gaining 11 points for the Club out of a possible 12. U17 athletes Bobby Pitman and Will Galliford returned from the ESAA Championships in Manchester Saturday to support the Club at Cambridge Sunday, with Bobby being rewarded with PB performances in both the 100 and 200m (11.4 and 23.2) along with a win in the DT. Will’s win in the 1500m being equally impressive. Team managers Libby Taylor and Shannon Rapacchi were delighted with everyone’s efforts. It looks increasingly likely that we will make the Top 8 final at Chelmsford on the 11th September. Please save the date. The last match is Sunday 14th August at Bedford.
