The first YAL meeting of 2012 proved to be very entertaining and Pendle athletes left their supporters with smiles on their faces. I’m not sure what position we finished in at this stage but it didn’t matter as everone played their part. Many athletes were competing for the first time and they did Pendle, themselves and their parents proud.
I didn’t see all the action, but these are a few of my recollections – Neng & Joe and (Jordan too?) winning their respective 100 & 200 sprints. Daemon 1.45 HJ, Spencer 4.17 LJ, Sophie winning her 200m, turning the tables on the athlete who beat her in the 100. Danielle jumping over 4m in competition and gaining a PB, Reece running and jumping well, Natrika performing admirably and I’m guessing Leah won all her events. There was so much to admire.
Thank you all athletes for the day’s entertainment.
