Midlands Road Relays 2017

IMG_4444The U13 boys team had an outstanding run to take the team silver medal at the Midland Road Relays at Sutton Park. Lachlan Finch led the team with 13.40 for his leg, which was the second fastest individual leg of the day. He handed over to Saffron AC debutante Alex Keeble who maintained the second place throughout to complete his leg in 14.46, which meant that Ash Butler was in a commanding position on the last leg to fight for the lead.

The U13 Girls team only just missed out on a medal when the team finished in 4th place. They produced a fantastic effort with Elsie Robinson taking the team through in the silver medal position and like Lachlan, she was the second fastest individual athlete on the day with her time of 14.32. Poppy Adkin had a strong race to complete her leg in 15.54 and to hold on to second place. Flo Hagger was on last leg and had a good solid run to bring the team home in 4th place.
