Midlands U13, U15 and U17 Champs

Posted: August 13, 2018 by megsamaniac in Uncategorized
The success of Team GB at the European Champs wasn’t the only athletics success this weekend!  Young athletes from Team RSC have emulated the success of their Team GB heroes at the Milands Championships.

Our very own Dina Asher-Smith, Isabel Male, who is a first year Under 15, took first place in the 100m final in a time of 12.45 secs. This is a new Club record beating her old outdoor record of 12.7 set earlier this year.

Jasmine Walker, a first year Under 17, continued her fine form in taking 2nd place in the Javelin.

Elsa Buchanan took 3rd place in the Under 15 Long Jump (just like Shara Proctor) in a new PB and she was 7th in the 300m Final.

Zara Buchanan was 11th in the Under 15 Long Jump in a new PB and she also set a PB in her heat of the 300m.

Like Adelle Tracey, Lucy Carey was 4th in the Under 15 800m final, having set a new PB in winning her heat. She also took 5th place in the 1500m Final.

Caitlin Ralph narrowly missed out on making the Final of the under 15 75m Hurdles after finishing in 3rd place in her heat.

James Ward (our Under 17 multi eventer) had a very busy few days competing in 5 events. He took 1st place in the Shot Put, 2nd place in the High Jump in a PB, 8th place in the 200m in a PB, 8th place in the 400m in a PB and 8th place in the Long Jump.

Joe Martin, a first year Under 17, who fractured his wrist approximately 10 days ago, took 8th place in the 800m Final.

Well done – we will be looking out for you all at a European Champs in the future!

YDL Promotion Final – 5th Place Finish

Posted: July 22, 2018 by megsamaniac in Uncategorized

Well done to all the U13s and U15s who competed at Banbury yesterday in the Lower Age YDL Promotion Final. A 5th place finish is a great result, as due to holidays we only had 2 U15s boys! It was great to see so many PBs at the last lower age group event of the year.

Thank you to all the officials and team managers, as without you this event wouldn’t have gone ahead.

English Schools Success

Posted: July 14, 2018 by megsamaniac in Uncategorized

Well done to Maddy Hughes, Isabel Male and Jasmine Walker for representing the West Midlands at English Schools yesterday and today.

Competing against the best in the country, Maddy (hammer) finished 13th and Isabel (200m) finished 4th in the final after storming to a new PB & Club Record in her heat (25.07).

Jasmine (javelin) finished 6th with 39.40m (just 14cm short of her PB). She was about 2m short of a medal as 3rd place was 41.59m. There were 21 starters. The top 9 all threw National or English Schools standards. Jasmine beat some big names, e.g. Peanut Meeking and Annabel Peach, so she did very well indeed.

Well done to all 3 girls – we’re very proud of you.

Second Place Finish for the Seniors in Newport

Posted: July 7, 2018 by megsamaniac in Uncategorized

A massive well done to RSCAC seniors for coming second in today’s league competition. This success was not only due to top three finishes, but also due to athletes doing extra events to gain as many points as possible. A massive well done to everyone, including the officials who missed an important football match to enable the event to take place!

Promition at the end of the season is within reach! So if you’re a RSCAC athlete who is in the Under 17 age group or older, please put Sunday 5th August in your diaries as that’s the last league meeting of the year. Let’s aim for promotion!
