At the British Universities Outdoor Athletics Championships held at Bedford held between 4-6 May 2013 Bobbi Philips won her semi final 5000m in a club record 17m42.52s - nearly a minute quicker than her previous best. Two days later in the final she ran a superb 16m50.09s lowering her record by nearly another minute! This also earned her a Bronze Medal.
Other club records so far this season have been achieved by Amy Carter -12.7s in 70m Hurdles, and Ruth Barnes - 13.80m in Javelin both at NEYDL Shildon on 28th April.
Well Done to all three!

Hannah Raine in the Under 13 Girls won the bronze medal with a score of 1932, with a pb 800m.
Josh Baines also finished in bronze position with a score of 905 – all 5 events were pbs (to be fair it was the first time he had competed in HJ, 80mH and SP).
Elena Heath finished in 6th in the Under 15 Girls with a score of 1448. She would have had a significantly better score had she not no-heighted in the high jump but set pbs in the long jump and shot.
Well Done to all four!
