McDonald's Boys YA League
Report by:Bryan Murray
Wakefield Harriers U17 McDonald's boys team completed their Young Athletes League campaign with a fixture at Costello Stadium, Hull.
The U17 age group were unable to field a strong team, due to injuries and athletes being unavailable. Nevertheless, the club athletes responded well to produce some good performances during the day.
Martin Bernard was named man of the match after his leap of 1.75m in the high jump. Mark Lindsay threw 57.77m to win the javelin event, while Steve Faulkner came home first in the 800m and second in the 400m.
Charles Handley also scooped three first places in the discus, shot putt and hammer events, in the U15 age group. In the same age group, Daniel Cooper also won three events, the 1500m, pole vault and 80m hurdles B competition. William Maddock also secured a double victory in the 100m B and 400m A events.
The U13 boys competition saw Chris Saunders triumph in the long jump and Chris Lockwood win the B shot putt. The Harriers track award was won by Joe Cherry for his time of 25.4 secs in the 200m, with fellow Harrier Chris Saunders wining the field award for his effort of 3.95m in the long jump.
