The 2017 track and field season started at Bracknell with the first UK youth development league fixture and BBHAC secured a solid 2nd place finish behind current National Champions Southampton. The U13 boys had a mix of athletes, some experienced and others making their Blackheath and Bromley HAC debuts.

Oliver Robertson started his day off winning the 75m hurdles with a fantastic new personal best time, followed by another win and PB in the high jump. Then a good long jump competition and a second place finish before running a great leg in the winning relay team. A great start to the season.

Connor Sutton had a great days racing, winning both the sprints and the relay. Connor equalled his PB in the 100m but ran a new best in the 200m.

Matt Smith started his day with a brilliant new best in the 75m hurdles smashing the 14 second barrier comfortably. Matt was also 3rd in the javelin and 4th in the high jump scoring valuable points for the team.

Josh Buddle Smith was just short of his best in the javelin and scored more points in the shot put and ran close to his best in the 800m.

Ben Campbell ran a superb 1500m breaking the elusive 5min mark for the first time. Ben also put the shot ensuring we had no gaps in the field events.

Oles Chaban making his track club debut showed his range of talent sprinting a new personal best in the 200m and then running very close to his best in the 1500m securing a fine second spot in the B string race.

Max Gregson ran a determined 800m race and finished a strong second clocking a new personal best time.

Jamie Sears, making his track club debut lead from the gun in his 800m race and crossed the line in first place with an impressive debut time.

Sam Stuart also made his debut in the 800m and was rewarded with a great opening season time.

Ethan Alapafuja opened his BBHAC account in some style coming second in the 100m in a quick time before helping the relay team to their great victory.

Another debutant was Jack Horn and he made his mark with a fast 100m and a quick leg in the victorious relay team.

Emmanuel Oniwinde jumped a new personal best in the long jump securing a fine second place and ran a new fast personal best in the 100, making for an impressive debut performance.

With three more matches in this league and the top two clubs guaranteed selection for the National final in September, BBHAC are hoping for continued success in the months to come.

Our next UKYDL fixture is in Southampton on 22nd May 2017. Team selection will be made soon after the Kent league fixture (7/5/2017) and will take into account all performances to date.
