YDL: Successful start for Upper Age Group

The club enjoyed a successful return to the Youth Development League Upper Age Group, with a convincing win in the opening fixture. The combined U20 and U17 teams took the first of 4 fixtures in YDL upper South division 1D, over 70 points ahead of Medway and Maidstone, with Orion third followed by the combined Victoria Tower Highgate team, and the Hawcs/Enfield&Haringey composite team. In conditions not conducive to good performances, with extreme wind chill leaving the temperature feeling close to freezing through much of the match, WGEL were strong across a notably wider range of events than the opposing teams.

Results on Po10

The U20W were consistently stronger in depth than the opposition, led by Amelia MacDonald who won the 100m hurdles (15.28 +5.1W) and high jump; Phoebe Fuhr who took the PV, steeplechase and B HJ; and Talia Morton-Kemsley who defied injury to win the SP, JT and B LJ. Other A string winners included Millie Finch in the 400 hurdles, and U17s Victoria Cuthbert and Abigail Allen who stepped up to win the U20W HT (4k 36.38) and DT respectively. The strength of our U17W throwers was highlighted by double wins in the hammer by Andreea Golban (51.90 to move up to top 5 in the early season rankings) and Simbiyat Sikiru (44.06 among 3 B string wins).

YDL Lower 2018: A winning start

Saturday saw the start of the U/13's & U/15's YDL at a very sunny and hot Ashford in Kent. In this new league that we have entered this year, we went there with some trepidation, especially as we were down some athletes due to the mini marathon on Sunday. Not to be deterred by this we excelled with some outstanding performances, many PB's and finishing 1st by nearly 30 points:

Result

1st: WGEL - 545.5, 2nd - Paddock Wood/Folkestone RC: 517, 3rd: Ashford (Host Club): 464, 4th: Orion Harriers: 446.5, 5th: East Grinstead: 406.5, 6th: Hastings AC: 289.0, 7th: Medway Park Phoenix: 201.5.
