Despite having a weakened women’s team, with three of our top female athletes invited to attend the Youth Talent Program Meeting at Loughborough on the same day, the MMK Upper Age Group Team had a narrow win over Northampton AC in the opening round at Derby. Several athletes went the extra mile to ensure the win, with a last-minute U20 Men’s 4x400m team, finishing second after a long day.
In the U17 Women’s 80m Hurdles, Hayley Dimond recorded a slightly windy 11.40 to knock 0.3 seconds off her own club record, to go top of the UK rankings.
The winning team over three rounds, will compete in the Promotion match at Milton Keynes on August 7. The next match is at Banbury on 29 May.
