Report on upper YDL & intercounties.
                              SOUTHERN INTER-COUNTIES U13/YDL UPPER AGE
Banbury Harriers young athletes gained personal best in abundance on Sunday at both the Southern Inter-Counties at Kings Meadow and YDL at Sutton Coldfield.  
 The YDL joint Banbury and Bicester team just missed promotion this due to the usual problem of empty spaces but did not deter the performances. The best on the day coming from Liam Grieveson lowering the 200metre under seventeen club record by a fifth of a second. He had earlier won the 100metres then won the B string discus and anchored the 4x100 team to victory.
 Alex Brown also had a good day winning the under twenty javelin and finishing second in the long jump leaping just short of six metres. Nathan Grieveson like his brother was in winning form in the under seventeen boy’s javelin.
Also in this age group Jack Gill gained two good wins with personal bests in the 100m hurdles and triple jump. Alfie Rowett ran to excellent races in both the 200 and 400metres close to personal bests.
 The small girls team also produced good performances with wins in their events from Megan Davies, Chloe Thompson, Jess Cherry. The youngest member Emily Benfield twice beat her best in the long jump to finish third.
 At Kings Meadow the pick was Evie Hawkins with two personal bests a clearance of 1m45cm in the high jump and 4m 48cm in the long.
 Charlie Yates also recorded a personal best in the boy’s high jump and Victoria Harte did likewise in the shot. Zoe Pollock ran close to personal bests in both the 100 and 200metres and Shannon Dawes despite a bad injury in the week to her eye gained good points in the javelin.
