Poole AC results from the Bournemouth AC Open on 12/09/21

At King’s Park last Sunday, with fluctuating breeze and sunny intervals, at times there was a significant crowd. As ever, we thank BAC for the organising, plus all our athletes, parents and coaches for their support, driving, and mutually shared interest in Athletics. An amazing 62 u11s took part in the four events of QuadKids, our four athletes all finishing in their top sevens! Pride of place again to Jemima Chetwood who achieved the overall best performances in 75m, 600m, and LJ. She broke her own points total Club Record again! Charlie was the fastest boy while Sadie was second best on 600m; and Lumen second best with Howler, in spite of throwing a great 30m! Of the u13s, Eloise, Beatrice, Zachary and Janus all gained multiple PBs. As did u15B Caleb. First here are those QK results:- (SX = Heat no. G = Race Graded by PBs.)

South-West Trials for London Mini-Marathon (to be held on October 3rd)

Trials for the teams to represent the South-West in the London Mini-Marathon were staged at King’s School, Taunton, last Sunday, on an approximately 2 km course. Within their age-groups, athletes had to finish in the first four to qualify for team selection, and places 5-6 were for next reserves. On the basis of the published results, Poole AC should have two selected (in the u17M team) and one reserve in each of u15B and u13G. Well done to all for even being invited, then for taking part, and thanks as ever to their parents for the transport and support on the day. The Mini-Marathon is due to be held on the final (Buckingham Palace) part of the main course, before the main event.
