Liverpool Throws & Jumps Meeting – Wavertree

A fantastic
sunny day saw Leah Hillman and Gregan Baker head off to Wavertree to
compete in the Liverpool Throws and Jumps Meeting.

It was a great
atmosphere on a beautiful athletics track with music playing all day.

Leah competed in the Javelin, Shot and Hammer Events gaining lst 2nd
and 3rd place respectively and also reaching Lancashire Standard level
in the Javelin and Shot which entitled her to receiving a Silver Salver
in these events.  In her Hammer she got personal best performance by
over 5 metres – well done Leah.

Gregan competed in the Javelin, Shot
and Discus Events gaining a personal best in his Javelin at his new
weight this year by just short of 4 metres, slightly over a metre short
of his personal best in the U13 category – well done Gregan.

In his
Shot he was slightly disadvantaged by the size of the other two
competitors but he put up a good fight just falling short of his
seasons’ best this year and in the Discus he also just fell short of
his seasons’ best but overall enjoyed the day.
