EAL Fixture 3 – Cambridge
by David Killick
Before the detail some simple stats:
4 club records broken, 8 debuts in a club top and roughly 25 PBs broken.
Keeping this brief will be difficult so anyone not mentioned many apologies now but I have been asked to limit my ramblings. (Not by me! Ed.)
At U11s we started the day with 6 athletes, ended up with 8 (6 girls and 2 boys) as 2 juniors there decided it looked fun and wanted to do it. Unfortunately this got me into trouble with the league for having too many athletes in events… I did my grovelling and have taken the penalty we have from the league committee (more on that later) and no, I am not sorry for encouraging children to participate in sport when athletics is in decline at a younger level (it was my admin error on not checking the rules as I got carried away with the excitement!) What a great job they did and had a wonderful time and the 3 girls who did the 4x100m relay for the U13 girls did so with a massive smile, which is what it is all about!
