SAL Match 5 – Dartford, 20 Aug 2016

Radley’s senior team travelled to its final SAL match in Dartford on Sat 20 Aug.

Lack of availability of athletes meant the team was only 16 athletes strong (including 6 masters athletes) across both genders and this was therefore always going to be a struggle to fill every event (2 per event) against the top 2 teams in the league. Despite this the athletes there covered as much as they could and rallied around, showing great team spirit to muster as many points as possible. Unfortunately it wasn’t enough and the team came 4th on the day with only 143 points.

Griffiths Gets the Gold!

At the u15/u17 South of England Champs Holly Griffiths-Brown landed the Gold medal in the u15 girls triple jump. As Holly took her first jump it was evident that the competition was over as she landed a 10.58mt jump - this was up in the top 5 jumps in the country this year and shocked the other competitors who never recovered. No one could respond and Holly just got better and better as the rounds went on.

SEAA Combined Events - Horspath, 16/17 July 2016

8 Radley athletes had entered this year’s SEAA Combined Events Championships, with every expectation of 3 of them taking a medal.

Regrettably the attrition rate meant that no medals were forthcoming.

Day one – Saturday the 16 July started badly as Adela Hussain (SW) had to pull out before the competition started with a damaged foot. With Pakistan internationals to prepare for this was a precaution we had to take to ensure she is in good shape in Oct/Nov.
