                                               ATHLETICS AT THE ALEXANDER STADIUM

Kyle Ennis produced the standard that he hopes will continue throughout the coming months during the weekend at Birmingham’s Alexander Stadium. The Banbury Harrier sprinter ran at the meeting which involved events inside over 60metres on the flat and hurdles. Then switched outside out for longer races and field events.

 Ennis first contested the 60metres indoors and showed why from this opening race, the coming season could be highly successful. The senior man’s races involved eight heats and Ennis produced the fastest time of the meeting with a time of 6.97seconds. He then switched outside and produced the same result in the 100metres, winning his heat in the fastest time of 10.85seconds.

 The last meeting of this season’s Sports Hall League also took place on Sunday at Witney. It finalised how Banbury Harriers under fifteen girls have dominated their age group this season. The six girls in the team all contributed like previous fixtures to the victory. Dubber like the previous day ran with determination on the track and likewise in her field events. Emily Thompson again demonstrated her ability to reach a high standard in athletics. In the longer races she won with ease and her performances in field events have climbed to another level. These two combined with the help of Abbey Anson, Paige Cooper, Naomi Anderson and Rebecca Scott easily won the relay races.
