The Scunthorpe and District Athletic Club held the first meeting on their newly re-laid track at Quibell Park on Sunday 22nd March. It provided Kingston’s athletes an opportunity for a first outdoor outing of 2015 and a fair number of them made the journey over the Humber Bridge to compete at the meeting.

Asher Gammon made his outdoor debut for the club, running in both the 80 metres and the 150 metres sprint races. He finished in 2nd place in each of the races and set new PB’s in both, clocking 9.6s in the 80 and 17.9 in the 150.

Five of our ladies competed in both the 80 and 150 metres women’s races, which saw a club 1 – 2 – 3 in both events.

In the 80 metres Megan Hoult ran a season’s best of 10.3s to win the race. Faye Mitchell ran a PB of 10.5s for 2nd place and Sonia Santos also put in a PB of 10.6s to take the 3rd slot. Two fairly recent members Angelakie Koutsi and Sarah Hardcastle took 5th and 6th places in 11.6s and 12.0s respectively.

The 150 metres saw Megan win the race with another season’s best performance of 19.0s and Faye again take second spot with another PB of 19.5 and Sonia Santos clocked a season’s best of 20.0s in 3rd slot. Angelakie took 7th place in 22.1s and Sarah 9th place in 23.1s.

In the men’s events James Wardle, in his first competition as a senior athlete was the winner of the long jump competition, where he put in a season’s best effort 5.71m.

The under 17 women’s 300 metres saw Amelia Robinson take 2nd place in the race and also set a new PB of 43.2s in the process, giving her a sound foundation for the coming season.

In the same age category, this time in the 80 and the 150 metres, we saw Jessica Fields, Chloe Constable and Charlotte McIvor, who have just moved up into the higher age group, in action. Chloe took 4th place in the 80 metres where she ran a new PB of 11.4s. Jessica finished one tenth of a second behind her in 5th which was a new PB for her. Charlotte was a further tenth behind in 6th position

In the 150 metres race Jessica took 6th place and returned a time of 21.0s which was another new PB. Chloe also set another new PB of 21.5s, to take 8th place. Charlotte finished in 11th and she ran a time of 22.6s.

The under15 girls 80 and 150 metres races saw Olivia Morton and Natasha Rawling representing the club. Both girls set new PB’s in the 80 metres, Olivia with a run of 11.7s which gained her a 4th place finish and Natasha a 6th place slot with 11.9s.

They both posted new PB’s again in the 150 race. Olivia was in 5th place with a run of 11.9s and Natasha 7th with 22.1s.

The under13 girls 80 and 150 metres saw two youngsters who were making their debuts for the club, Hermione Kelworth and Bella Tarbotton.

Hermione finished in 12th place in the 80 metres where she recorded a time of 12.5s for her efforts and Bella was in 14th place with a run of 13.2s. The 150 metres race saw Hermione in 14th place in 23.8s and Bella in 19th with 25.1.

The under15 boy’s category saw Jack Perry in action. He has been with the club since August last year and some of his indoor performances in 2015 have been very impressive. At Scunthorpe we saw him contesting the 150 metres and the long jump. In the 150 he took 2nd place and set a new PB of 18.4s in doing so. Jack then went on to win the long jump competition with his best effort measuring 5.43m, 69 centimetres ahead of the 2nd placed athlete.

Again in the under 15 boy’s category Kyle Foster contested the 300 metres race, where he took 2nd place setting a new PB of 41.3s.

In the under 13 boy’s Harrison Haigh saw competition in both the 80 and 150 metres races. In the short race he finished in 2nd place and recorded a time of 12.0s. The 150 metres saw him take 4th place with a run timed at 22.9s.

‘Tom Pinks’ Relays and Field Events

E.I.S. Indoor Stadium, Sheffield – Saturday 14th March 2015

 

Our junior training group, which consists of athletes in the under11 and under 13 age groups, travelled in strength to the magnificent English Institute of Sport indoor stadium in Sheffield, to compete against countless hundreds of other young athletes who had travelled from all corners of the north, to what is probably the biggest junior competition in Northern England. It is definitely the best attended and the most anticipated competition and by far the noisiest event. Our youngsters had been looking forward to Sheffield since before last Christmas.

The track events consist of three team relays. ‘Chasing Mo’ ‘Chasing Kelly’ and ‘Keeping up with Paula’ all of course named after 3 of our greatest ever athletes.

The under 11’s also take part in the ‘over and under’ relay, whilst the under 13’s compete in the 3 x 2.5 lap time trials.

All contestants compete in the field events which are designed to cater for juniors and every event sees some serious competition from the young athletes.

Kingston’s young competitors returned home with a magnificent haul of 12 medals. Between them they won 4 gold medals, 6 silver and 2 bronze.

 

Relay Results

Our under11 boys team, consisting of Theo Dabbs – Tom Iverson – Daniel Chadwick – Junior Agostinho and Sam Frankish won gold in the ‘Keeping up with Paula’ race and they set a good time of 2:44.4, six tenths of a second ahead of the 2nd placed team from Chesterfield and District.

Theo, Tom, Junior and Sam also competed in the over/under relay where they won the silver medal in a time of 1:16.8s. This time they were just beaten to the gold medal by the by the Chesterfield team.

The under 11 girl’s, Sophie Reed – Sarah Healey – Sophie McIntyre – Mia Brocklehurst and Lauren McClean fought their way to the final in the ‘Keeping up with Paula’ but just missed out on the medals and had to settle for a 4th place finish with a run of 2:53.1s.

Lauren McClean, Mia Brocklehurst, Sophie McIntyre and Sophie Reed competed in the over/under relay. They qualified for the final, where they put in a great effort and were very unlucky not to win the bronze medal. Their time of 1:18.9 was the same as the Crewe and Nantwich quartet who were awarded the medal.

The under 13 boy’s team of Henry Cannell – Joe Seed – Harvey Newton – Sam Croney and Matthew Greendale contested the final of the ‘Chasing Mo’ relay where they finished in 2nd place, picking up well deserved silver medals. The time for their run was 3:42.7s.

Harvey Newton, Joe Seed and Robert Smith were our under 13 boy’s team in the 3 x 2.5 lap time trial. They finished in 6th place in the final and ran a time of 4:43.7s.

The under13 girl’s team of Ciara Andrews – Becky Chivers – Jodie Martin – Gina Lancey and Alanah Thoresby reached the final of the ‘Chasing Kelly’ race where they finished in 5th place and recorded a time of 3:56.0s.

Under 13’s Jodie Martin, Evie Watson and Ella Draper ran the 3 x 2.5 lap time trials where they just missed out on the medals, finishing in 4th place in the final and setting a time of 4:51.6s.

 

Field Results – Under 11’s

Alex Grant was the silver medallist in the Caber event, where his total of 26 points was just one behind the gold medallist from City of Sheffield AC. Ramon Arroyo amassed a points total of 24, which gave him a 7th place finish.

In the Highland Steps competition Daniel Chadwick managed 65 steps in his allotted time to finish 4th, just one step away from the bronze medal. Ramon Arroyo was in 9th place with a total of 50.

In the Soft javelin throw Junior Agostinho was in 7th place with a throw of 14.75m. Alex Chivers finished 12th with his best throw measured at 13.00m.

The Standing Long Jump event saw Junior Agostinho finish in 9th position with a leap of 1.96m. James Iverson finished in 12th place with his best effort of the day, a jump of 1.76m.

In the under 11 girls Charlotte Gray put in one of the days outstanding performances when she won the gold medal in the Weight for Distance event, her club mate Evie Newton took 5th place in the event.  

The under 11 girls standing Long Jump saw Lauren McClean win the silver medal with an effort measuring 2.00m. Sophie Reed finished in 5th position with 1.86m.

England Athletics Under15 & Under 17 Combined Events Championships

E.I.S. Stadium, Sheffield – Sat 14th & Sun 15th March 2015

 

 

Kingston’s sole representative at the England combined events championships was 16 year old Nathan Hood. He has been with the club since the age of 10 and has been a multi-eventer from day one.

The athletes competed in a heptathlon event, in which they took part in the track races over 60 metres, 1000 metres and 60 metres hurdles and in the field events of pole vault, high jump, long jump and shot putt. The competition took place over two days on the weekend of 14th/15th March.

Nathan had a very good weekend. The opening event, which was the 60 metres, set the tone for the day, when he ran a season’s best of 8.27s, just one hundredth of a second outside his PB.

The other track events saw new PB’s in both the 1000 metres where he ran 3:16.52s and the 60 metres hurdles where he clocked 10.62s.

The field events saw him set two new PB’s. In the shot putt he launched a huge throw of 7.83m increasing his old PB by 85 centimetres and in the high jump he increased his old best by 3 centimetres.

The long jump saw Nathan produce a season’s best performance with a leap which measured 5.39.

The pole vault saw him put in another season’s best effort when he cleared a height of 2.05m. This event however was Nathan’s one disappointment over the weekend. He is a good pole vaulter but has been unable to practice as much as he would have liked too. There have been problems with the stanchions back at the club and the vaulters have only been able to practice their drills.

Nathan amassed a total of 2785 points in this competition which was another new PB. He was happy with it but was left to rue his lack of pole vaulting practice. If he had got anywhere near his potential he would have passed the 3000 points mark.

In the 2014 season Nathan was the 400 metres hurdles champion at the Humberside Schools Championships. He was the pole vault silver medallist at the Hull International Athletics Festival Meeting and at the Humberside County Championships he won silver in the triple jump and bronze at pole vault.

Inter Counties Cross Country Championships

Cofton Park, Birmingham – Saturday 7th March 2015

 

The 2015 Inter Counties Cross Country Championships were held in Cofton Park, Birmingham on Saturday 7th of March. A total of 2488 athletes competed in the championships and they represented their Counties, from all parts of England, Scotland and Wales.

The designated athletics region for Hull and the East Riding of Yorkshire is Humberside and all the athletes from this area compete under that name.

Eleven of the clubs youth and junior athletes represented Humberside at the championships.

In the under 20 men’s race which was contested over a distance of 8 kilometres our representatives were Harry Powell and Josh Taylor-Brown.

Harry has been in excellent form over the last few months and he put in another good performance at Birmingham. In a strong field he finished 34th out of 187 runners, he ran the course in 24:53s. Josh is working his way back to full fitness after injuries. He completed the course, finishing in the lower half of the race and finished with a time of 29:32s.

In the under 17 men’s event Kingston’s Shaun Smith and Jack Brothwell ran the 6 kilometres course.

Shaun is another of our athletes who has been running really well in recent times. Fortune did not go his way at Birmingham. He started a little too quickly, he was then shoved over. He is a real competitor and he battled on but had to settle for a middle placing among the 274 runners, he finished the race in 22.06s. Jack too didn’t have one of his best races but it wasn’t for any lack of effort. He completed the course in 23.08s and also finished in the middle positions.

The under15 girl’s race saw a trio of Kingston Athletes in competition. They all completed the course and all finished in the lower half of the 290 competitors.

Natalie Bell ran the 4 kilometres in a recorded time of 22:29s. Sophie Sweeting crossed the finishing line in 22:53s and Martha Savage in 25:13s.

The under 13 boys saw three of our youngsters Matthew Lyons, Robert Smith and Joe Seed amongst the 300 starters in the 3 kilometres race. All completed the course, finishing in the lower half of the race.

Matthew crossed the finish line in 14:07s. Robert in 15:23s and Joe finished in 15:37s.

Abbie Haigh was our sole contestant in the under13 girl’s event. She was under the weather on the day and really should not have taken part but she is a great competitor and insisted that she wanted to run. She took her place on the start line, as one of the 305 contestants. She completed the 3 kilometres course in a time of 15:19s and finished in the lower positions.

35th Barton and District Cross Country Race

Sunday 1st March 2015

 

Seven of Kingston’s youth athletes made the journey over the Humber Bridge on a cold and windy Sunday 1st of March to compete in the 35th running of the Barton and District Cross Country race. They were part of a field of 391 runners.

The Under 20 men’s race was won by Harry Powell who completed the course in a time of 35:05s. He notched up his third cross country title of 2015, following his victories in the Humberside County and Humberside Schools Championships.

Shaun Smith ensured that his fine run of form continued by taking 2nd place in the under 17 men’s race and he returned a time of 22:10s.

In the under 13 boy’s event Robert Smith finished in 13th place, navigating the course in 18:38s. His team mates Finlay Pickering the Humberside County and Humberside Schools Champion and Matthew Lyons both suffered injuries during the run and were unable to finish the race.

The under 13 girl’s saw Abbie Haigh put in another excellent performance to take 5th place and record a time of 8:04s for her efforts. Jess Townsend was making her first cross country appearance of 2015 and she did struggle a little but a strong and gutsy finish saw her pass several athletes and finish 21st in the field.

England Athletics Indoor Championships

Under 20, Under 17 & Under 15

E.I.S. Sheffield   28th Feb and 1st March 2015

 

The England Athletics Indoor Championships for the under20, under17 and under 15 age groups held at the English Institute of Sport in Sheffield attracted a record number of athletes from all parts of the United Kingdom. The standard of performance did not disappoint, with a number of new championship records being set over 2 busy days of competition.

Nine of our athletes earned the right to enter the England Indoor Championships, all of them having achieved the qualifying times for their relevant events. Three of them competed in the finals of their events.

Kingston’s Northern Counties bronze medallist Venus Morgan was one of 57 athletes entered in the under 15 girls’ 60m hurdles. Ranked 15th in the UK prior to the championships she safely negotiated her heat, crossing the line in 2nd place with a new personal best of 9.40 sec, 0.15 sec faster that her previous best. Not satisfied with reaching the semi-final Venus then ran even faster, clocking 9.34 sec to finish 3rd and qualify for the final where she ended up in 6th place in a very tightly contested race.

Charlotte Paterson contested the 60 metres sprints. She broke her Personal Best twice. The semi final saw her lower her best to 7.60s and in the final she lowered her PB to 7.59s. Unfortunately it was not enough to gain her a medal to go with the silver she won at the recent Northern Championships but it was yet another outstanding performance by Charlotte.

Sprinter Hannah Kynman had mixed fortunes over the weekend. On Saturday she first equalled her personal best time of 8.00 sec in the heats of the 60m before finishing 3rd in the semi-final in 8.04 sec, just missing the final by 1 place. Sunday saw Hannah contesting the 200m in which she is the reigning Northern champion. Finishing 3rd in her heat in 26.01 Hannah should have progressed to the semi-final stage but unfortunately had to withdraw on medical advice due to injury.

Adam Coles who missed a medal in the 60m hurdles in the Northern Championships at the same venue by a mere 0.04 sec last month had the misfortune to miss his goal by an even closer margin this time. A poor start meant that he had ground to make up on his rivals but even with a strong second half of the race his time of 9.48 sec fell an agonising 0.02 sec short of qualifying for the final. Even so Adam can look forward to the outdoor season with confidence such has been the improvement in his performances this winter.

Amelia Benson is 15 years old and has just moved up an age group, to the under 17’s. She is one of the clubs very promising young sprinters. Amelia ran in the heats of the 60 metres and she posted a time of 8.12s.

Emily Lyons is in her second year in the under 17’s, she was one of the Kingston sprint quartet who during the 2014 season posted the fastest time in the UK in the 4 x 100 metres relay. At Sheffield Emily ran in the heats of the 200 metres and clocked a time of 26.90s.

Brett Dorley has been with the club for just over 6 months. In that time he has trained hard and it has been good to see him improving his technique and steadily getting faster. The hard work paid off with a qualifying time for these championships. He ran in the heats of the 60 metres and he recorded a time of 7.69s.

Joe Cooper is one of the mainstays of the clubs under 20’s and senior league teams. He has spent the winter in intense training for the 2015 season. He was a 60 metres finalist at the recent Northern Championships. Joe ran the 60 metres at Sheffield, but got off to a poor start in his heat, he came out of the blocks in 8th place but pulled it back to claim 3rd at the finish line.

Marcel Dalee is a second year under 17 and is a 400 and 800 metres specialist. He is a vital and popular member of the clubs under 17/20 team. Marcel ran in the 800 metres heats and crossed the finish line in 2:05.00s.

 

Charlotte Paterson received fantastic news after the Championships. She was selected to represent England Under20’s in the ‘Celtic Cup’ competition which will be held in Cardiff on the weekend of 7th/8th March 2015.
