Six athletes from West Norfolk AC competed for Team Norfolk in Norwich for the home match of the Youth Development League.
As a composite Norfolk-wide team, u20 and u17 athletes compete with team mates from across Norfolk and they won the match, resulting in an overall first place finish in the Premier League’s second division.
This promotes Norfolk to the top division next year, where athletes will compete against the very best in the UK.
West Norfolk AC’s u20 hurdler James Greenhalgh led the way with two fantastic A string victories in the 400m hurdles and his favoured 110m hurdles.
Greenhalgh ran 15.72secs in the 110m hurdles, just outside his best time and against a stiff head wind.
The quick starting Greenhalgh went on to run a fine first leg of the 4x100m relay, leading to victory for the Norfolk team.
He followed this up with a fine opening leg to hand over in the lead in the 4x400m relay although the team did later slip to fourth position.
West Norfolk’s excellent quality hurdling continued with u17 athlete Rahim Benson.
He ran well in the 400m hurdles for second place in 61.6 and was third in the 100m hurdles in 14.96.
Benson ran a great leg in the u17 sprint relay with the team finishing third overall and also helped the u20 team with a fine last leg in the 400m relay.
Harry Knight made his debut at this level and was rewarded with fourth place in the A string shot with 10.66m
Lucy Edwards found the conditions tricky in the triple jump but did well in the long jump for second place in the u20s A string with 4.82m.
Emma Dewdney battled hard in the pole vault but again found the conditions really tricky.
Dewdney has scored well all season in the pole vault and has also covered events for injured athletes.
U17 athlete Hannah Greenhalgh moved up to the u20 hurdles events and was first in the B string 100m hurdles and third in the 400m hurdles.
Greenhalgh returned to her own age group to cover the javelin, finishing sixth in the A string event.
