Novies get recognition for excellent performances.

Carmarthen Harriers year 5 and year 4 boys and girls have excelled themselves in the first two league meetings of the season. For this group of boys and girls, many who are new to athletics, we are recognising those who make a significant contribution to the team and those who gave exceptional performances. Exceptional performers are not just those who win races but those who score vital points in a number of events. To this end we are giving an award to recognise each under 11 boy and girl who has achieved in these areas.

After the Carmarthen event, the coaches & team managers decided that the award for exceptional boy would go to Guto Phillips who won both the shot and the 75 metres (this also secured him the u11 boy of the match award) for the girls it was Keira Carmody with an amazing debut in the 75 metres. Team player awards went to Harri Howells and Jessica Lee with Jessica the highest points scorer for the club in the 800metres and Harri delivering vital club points in 4 events including the relay.

In Neath many of the same athletes travelled on a beautiful day and again excelled themselves with a range of excellent performances. Owain Powell was rewarded for real talent in the javelin finishing first on his debut. For the girls the stand out performance was Annabella Leahy taking a spectacular 2.5 seconds off her 150 metres time. Delivering for the team again were Owain-Hari Davies competing in 3 events and getting 2 PB's. For the girls it was the hardest decision as so many did well but on this occasion it went to Emma Brazier delivering vital and consistently good club points in running, jumping and throwing. Well done Emma.

If you were not at the track when these were given out then please see Jake or Jane next Tuesday. The next league event is on the 12th of July in Brecon. We hope to see as many as possible there continuing to improve your times and distances. Another round of awards will take place after the third match.
