It has been a frustrating week looking out for the YAL result, no less so to find that they were actually out there on the web - just not where they SHOULD have been. Hopefully that will now correct itself.
I wanted to do a full report on Monday but lack of results prevented this - however at the moment I will just highlight the two club records that I am aware of:
In the YAL, Hannah Raine u13 Girl High Jump 1.35 previously set by Johanna Jackson at 1.34 in 1997 and
In the BUCS held at the Olympic Park, Russ Best set a new mark for Open 5000m of 14:29.47 previously held by Mark Shaw (u20) at 14:37.2 set last year.
A fuller report will follow
Aviva Sportshall Regional U13/U15’s Finals 18/02/12
14 New Marske Harriers girls made the trip up to The Seaburn Centre Sunderland to represent Tees Valley in the Aviva Sportshall Regional Finals. Having never been to a Sportshall competition before I was surprised by how well the event was organised and all the girls enjoyed the day. Thanks must go to Team Manager Jean Cole and Ester English for organising the team and all the New Marske coaches for the training.
Sportshall has worked across each county to deliver the largest school sport competition programme over the past five years. Thousands of youngsters have been introduced to athletics through this event. Boys, take a look at the video to see what you missed and hopefully next year we will be able to enter a boys’ team as well.
To round off a good day, Katie Thornton won bronze in the U13 girls 4 lap race and Lucy Williamson bronze in the under 13 girls vertical jump. Well done to all the girls.

In quite a rough race Ricky Stevenson finished 4th in a time of 3:58.91 behind Andy Baddley in the New Balance Games at Armory Track in New York. There was a few hitches with the youtube feed that may have prevented some from being able to view the race live.
