Reports for 18th & 19th May


Reports on Midland league & Oxon Junior league.
 The Sunday report as been put together with little info as promised results are still forthcoming and left me struggling with a photo shoot going to be in the BG this week. Fingers crossed no problems.
                                                                  MIDLAND LEAGUE AND OXON LEAGUE
The fall short of team members for Banbury Harriers on Saturday in the Midland League at Tipton was offset with a number of excellent individual performances for the club to obtain a good fourth place of the six competing clubs.
 The sprinting of both Kyle Ennis and Leigh Watson out shined the other five clubs and Watson gained an excellent personal best in the 200metres in a time of 22.5seconds.
 In the throws Perris Wilkins and Andy Elder came either first or second in the hammer, shot and discus. Elder joined Alex Brown in the javelin to win the “B string” with the third longest throw on the day. Brown recorded the best throw of the day to give him first place in the “A”string , earlier he won the “B” string long jump.
Sam Edwards claimed second place in both “A” string long and triple jumps he later ran an excellent leg in 4x400m relay.
Bert Rowett started the day on the track with a win for Harriers in the 400metre hurdles and later ran two good legs in both relays. Adam Crofts collated many points in all six events he competed in.
 In the ladies team there was an excellent win for Amy Peacock in the javelin, also in the long and triple jumps Shana and Shannon Parker gained first or second places.
 Hannah Cousins recorded an excellent personal best in the 100metre hurdles and Beth Hope the youngest member of the team made a good debut at this level.
 Banbury Harriers kept their challenge for Oxon League honours on track at the North Oxon Academy on Sunday with good all round performances. This was emphasized early in the meeting when William Thompson easily won the combined under fifteen and under seventeen 1500metre’s race. In third place came Gregor Kelling thus winning the under fifteen’s. The Thompson family later followed this up in the same age group when younger sister Emily showed again her great talent when winning 800metres despite being the youngest in the race.
 In the first track event Victoria Harte easily won the under thirteen girl’s 70 hurdles race in a time one fifth of a second slower than her personal best. Naomi Anderson and Jordon Dunn also had good wins in the under fifteen’s age group in their sprint races and going close to personal best.
 Alfie Rowett in the under seventeen’s 400metres demonstrated that he could have the potential to be extremely good when winning in style and lowering his personal best by a good way.
 In the field events there was a good win in the under seventeen shot putt by Nathan Grieveson, he also threw well in the javelin.
 In the youngest age group the under eleven’s both Matilda Donaghy and Emelia Darvell stood out in the vortex throw and later the former easily won her 600metre race
