Blackheath and Bromley Harriers AC U13 and U15 boys and girls team are Kent league champions, adding this to the South of England title they won last month.

A fantastic team performance at Medway Park on 4th August saw them crowned champions, despite many missing athletes on holiday duty!

Despite the holiday period the U13 boys had a full and strong squad of twelve talented youngsters.

In the sprints Zuriel Nwogwugwu ran a fine personal best of 26.2 winning the 200m, a 4.86 long jump win and a fast leg in the winning relay team. To fill his day Zuriel turn his hand to high jump, so looking good for the up coming Kent pentathlon.

Rayhan Mourtada had a busy day coming second in the quick 75m hurdle race, followed by a win in the B string 100m running a new PB, second in the B string long jump and then finishing with a strong leg in the 4 100m relay.

David Dare won the 100m A string with a new personal best of 12.6, won the B string 200m in 26.9 and led the relay team home in seasons best time of 52.3.

Andrew Nikoro had a winning day, placing first in the B string hurdles and first in the high jump and to complete his day ran a 100m sprint.

Marley Byfield ran a great new best in the 200m and gave the relay team a great start with a fast lead off leg.

Franco Hillier ran well and finished fast in his first ever 1500m, before trying his hand (or legs) at the long jump.

We were lucky enough to have all twelve athletes fit and well at the end of the day and so were able to field three strong sprint relay teams. The second team was made up of Franco on leg 1, field event specialists Finn Kitteridge and Max Kennedy on 2 and 3 and Andrew on 4.

Before the relay Finn was busy in the field, jumping well in the high jump and throwing the javelin and putting the shot scoring loads of team points.

Max also had three field events to conquer before the relay and threw over 30m again in the javelin and contested the hammer and shot again scoring loads of valuable team points.

James Lawson had a very busy day running a personal best in the 100m, a quick 200m and jumping over 4m in the long jump. James also brought the relay team home on anchor leg.

Middle distance youngster Henri Verster turned his hand to sprinting and sprinted well clocking 30.2sec before running the fast top bend in the relay.

Ryan Hang is finding his sprinting feet with a great run in the 100m and contributing well, running leg 2 down the back straight in the relay.

Always great to watch the determined Daniel Jenkins race as he sprinted well in the both the 100m and 200m just shy of his best times. Daniel also led the relay team off on leg 1.

It was very impressive to see every one of the twelve U13 boys take part in the relays, quite an intimidating site for the other clubs to see.

Well done squad, a great finish to the Kent league track and field season.

7 July 2019 - Kent Young Athletes League - Ashford

Full Results here...

The Blackheath and Bromley team for the second Kent league fixture at Ashford was slightly depleted due to a clash with the London Youth Games, but impressively the team competed superbly and won on the day.

Some fantastic performances combined to leave the combined U13/15 boys and girls team on top of the league table, with one remaining fixture.

Ben Platt leaped a massive 3.50m to break the pole vault league record and collected a smart medal for his efforts.

The U13 boys were affected by the fixture clash, injuries and holidays and were only able to field six athletes but all six put in great efforts.

Busiest of the day was Franco Hillier who started the discus warm up early, before racing over to the other side of the track ready for the hurdles. Unfortunately Franco caught one of the hurdles during the race and went down hard taking the skin off his knees Franco wanted to carry on with his busy day in the discus, 1500m and relay but his body had other ideas.

Zuriel Nwogwugwu had a great day sprinting well in the 100m dipping inside 13 seconds, running a fine sub 27 sec in the 200m, knocking 2 seconds off his best and long jumping 4.75m with a winning jump. Zuriel also brought the relay team home to a solid silver.

Daniel Jenkins raced hard over the 100m , 200m and ran a great leg two down the back straight in the relay.

Marley Byfield knocked nearly a second off his best time in the 200m and jumped a personal best in the high jump before leading the relay team off with a strong opening leg.

James Lawson made a solid Blackheath and Bromley debut with great performances in the 100m and long jump and running a fine leg on the top bend in the relay.

Jasper Brooks had a day off running but jumped well in the long jump winning the B string .

Due to the lack of U13 athletes available on the day, we had no-one in the shot, discus, hammer, 1500m or hurdles making our victory even more impressive.

The final Kent league fixture is on Sunday 4th August at Medway Park
