Stars start to shine in BAC Open @ King’s Park!
The Bournemouth AC Open at King’s Park on March 31st first saw seven of our U11 athletes compete. Ethan was the only one who had done a QK series before. For three of the boys to rank 4th, 5th and 6th (out of 31) on totals was a promising achievement. All will have gained from the experience and will recognise the weaknesses on which they have to work.
In this table, the best results (B/G) are highlighted.

The older age-groups produced several winners on a cloudy, bright, mild day with a steady, cool, easterly headwind for the sprinters and high jumpers. In the results below, there were a number of PBs. Many events were mixed so not all ranked.
NOTE: Outstanding U17W Club Record by Fleur Mansell in Triple Jump.
