England Athletics Age Group Indoor Championships were held in Sheffield between Saturday 28th February and Sunday 1st March. TVH had 11 young athletes representing the club and our jumpers performed exceptionally well by winning two silver medals in the triple jump and a bronze in the high jump.
Highlights of the day included Charlotte Buckley’s top 30 finish in the U13 Girls’ race, and the U15 Girls’ Top Ten team result.
Manuel da Silva reports:
As the indoor Track and Field season gains momentum, a number of TVH athletes were in action both at home and abroad over the last few weeks. The stand-out performance came from Zoey Clarke who won a double gold at the Scottish Championships.
It was a home fixture at the Scrubs on Saturday that once again welcomed the final Met League cross country race of the season.
Good home support also ensured a good turnout, with the 8 strong women’s team their second highest turnout of the season and the men fielding their highest turnout of the season with a 23 man team.
A win for Mohamud Aadan in the men’s race, plus 2nd and 3rd in the women’s race for Tracy Barlow and Lisa Da Silva ensured it was a day to remember for Valley supporters.
TVH have been invited to enter a Vets team in the Southern Counties Vets track and field league. There are 4 matches on Monday evenings at Hillingdon, Battersea (twice) and Perivale.
The club is happy to enter a team, if there is a volunteer to be team manager and co-ordinate any officials required.
