LATEST COVERAGE & FULL RESULTS from all the 4 Dyfed Area Athletics Meetings from May 10th...Brianne, Pembrokeshire, Ceredigion, Llanelli


Dyfed athletes and staff from all 28 secondary schools in the district have recently been busy at their area athletics competitions held at Carmarthen, Llanelli and Haverfordwest in the last 10 days featuring youngsters in Years 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 and sixth form. There was plenty of local talent and future stars out on show during the four meetings. 8 Ceredigion schools were the first to travel and visit Johnstown for their competition on 10th May in the rain, before 300 Brianne athletes took part at the same venue 48 hours later on Thursday. For the 6 Llanelli schools, they had made the short journey across town to the Pemberton track on a stunning summers day. Events varied in each age group over short & middle distances as well as the popular field events & hurdles heats/finals.

Pembrokeshire Schools finished the area programme down at Sir Thomas Picton School on Wednesday 18th and on a dry day, there were some very exciting performances. The standard of competition has been very high which produced many encouraging performances; and a number of school records broken in 2016. The top finishers in each event have now qualified to compete and represent their area at the big Dyfed Secondary Schools Athletics championships at Carmarthen over the two day weekend programme on Friday 10th and Saturday 11 June. Immediately after the competition, a team will be selected to compete at the Welsh National competition in Cardiff in July.
