Chiltern Cross Country League – Oxford
National Road Relays Championships
WSEH AC were fully represented in each of the races at the National Road Relay Championships at Birmingham over the weekend, but despite some good performances, failed to make any podium places.
South of England AA Road Relays - Bedford
WSEH AC made their presence felt at the South of England AA Road Relays meeting at Bedford with two sets of team medals plus some excellent individual performances.
Silver team medals were gained in the Senior Ladies event with a WSEH team that included two U20 athletes, thus adding to future hopes.
BRITISH MASTERS CHAMPIONSHIPS – BIRMINGHAM
WSEH AC added to their considerable tally of national champions this summer season with 5 more being gained at the British Masters Championships in Birmingham.
THE WSEH throwers were on form. Neil Grifinn, who joined the club as a 13 year old, notched three titles in the Vet 65 category, winning the Shot with 12m61, the Discus with 44m65 and the Heavy Weight with 13m66.
ALDER VALLEY BOYS LEAGUE FINAL – READING SUNDAY SEPT 11th
With two major WSEH AC coaching groups opting not to support the Alder Valley Boys League Final at Reading, coupled with the start of the soccer and rugby seasons, it was a much depleted team that contested the match the last track match of the season. Not surprisingly the local club finished in last place in the 6 club match won by the host club Reading AC.
Despite the gaps in the team there were some good individual performances from those WSEH athletes present.
NATIONAL UK DEVELOPMENT LEAGUE FINALS
The WSEH AC Young Athletes travelled to Bedford on Saturday and Sunday to contest the National Finals of the UK Athletics Youth Development League where the local club were pitted against the best that the North and Midlands could offer. In fact WSEH were one of only three clubs to contest the Under 15/13 final on the Saturday and the U20/17 final on the Sunday – an achievement in itself.
