One down three to go. Senior Track League 07/05/2011 Middlesbrough

The first of the Senior track leagues took place at Middlesbrough on Saturday 7th of May. After being promoted last year when we won Division 3, the competition was notably tougher in D2. Competing against larger clubs of Gateshead, Middlesbrough, York, Durham and North Shields our athletes were not swayed and each gave their best to accumulate valuable points showing great team spirit with our ally’s from South Shields. Many of our athletes doubled up on events (some even competing a day later in the Junior league and Lampton 5k) making their efforts even more commendable. We finished 5th place on the day, only 2 points off 6th showing that every position counts. Notable performances on the day came from Sophie Taylor and Sophie Forster our U17 rising stars competing in their first Senior league. Also a mention to Alex Robson with a welcome return to competition. Bob Jaques acquired some points for Birtley, in an official capacity as a track judge. Birtley results are as follows M 800m 5 Neil Alan 2.13.6 (First one for 14 years) M 1500m A 4 Neil Alan 4.28.3 M 110mH A 3 Alex Robson 22.0 M Hammer Throw A 4 Iain Turnbull  32.70 M High Jump 3 Alex Robson 1.60 W 200m 5 Sophie Taylor 29.5 W 1500m A 2 Tracy Millmore 4.43.3 W 1500m B 1 Sophie Forster 4.56.9 W Long Jump B 2 Sophie Taylor          U17 SSH 4.03 MATCH RESULT      LEAGUE STANDINGS Event  Lge                              Event  Lge 1 GHD 449    6    1 Gateshead Harriers & AC   449    6 2 COY 319    5    2 City of York AC           319    5 3 MID 315    4    3 Middlesbrough AC          315    4 4 NSP 277    3    4 North Shields Poly AC     277    3 5 SSH 218    2    5 birtley/ south shields    218    2 6 DCH 216    1    6 Durham City Harriers AC   216    1 The next Senior Track League is at York on June 4th.
