BHS Students Round off a busy Summer Holiday of Athletics


To round off a busy summer holiday of athletics competitions and off the back of medals in the Welsh championships for Ruby & Henry two weeks ago it was  Pippa, Theo (back after months off with injury) and Henry who travelled to Carmarthen at the weekend as part of the East Wales team ; Personal bests for Theo in the 100m -12.50 & 4 x 400m relay 48.06 and Pippa in the 800m -2.52. East Wales came 2nd to West Wales in a tight competition that came down to the final relays of the day.

The very best from all over Wales came to Brecon Saturday for the Welsh county schools Xc championship. With only 10 athletes representing each of the 10 county's /areas there was nowhere to hide; the going for every race was fast and furious. 

An electric pace in the junior girls race saw a battle out front between 5 of Wales's best, among them Ruby Herdman who held on for 3rd and a national xc bronze medal  finishing just 6 seconds behind the race winner. 

Lilwen had a late call up to the powys team and ran a steady race for her team finishing 75th.

Lily Wiggins had a long wait for the year 7 race,added to which the worst of the weather hit just as the race started.
 

A wobble in confidence mid race was overcome and she picked up places in the second half of the race to finish 54th and 3rd for powys team (10 runners). 

Great going girls, well


Dan Pitt being presented with his Welsh Vest. Unfortunately, his fight was cancelled at the last minute on Saturday. I guess his opponent was running scared!!


The brother’s coach is looking to organise an assessment of Dan and Ollie for the Welsh squad. Exciting times ahead for both boys
