A fantastic summer culminated with North Somerset Athletic Club deservedly being crowned champions of the Avon Track & Field League.

After a four-year gap where the title was swapped between Team Bath and Yate, NSAC officials, team managers and athletes created a strong team and win a thrilling final fixture.

Winners on the day: Nyree, under-13 girls’ long jump, 4.40m and discus 17.04m; Issy, under-17 girls’ discus 26.66m; Hannah, under-17 girls’ 100m 13.20; Mel, vet women 100m 18.30; Alys, senior women 800m 2.28.30; Steph, under-17 women 300m hurdles 50.80; Tim, under-17 boy’s 400m 56.50; Ollie, under-17 boy’s 1500m 4.24.80; Russ, vet men 1500m 4.41.30; Lewis, under-17 high jump 1.70m.

In an extremely competitive under-11 Quadkids event (school year four and five), NSAC finished a brilliant second to a strong Bristol & West team.

Top scorers: Leo 206 points; Gabriel 216; Joel 213; Harry 182; Holly 189; Nancy 142; Chloe 163; Eloise 167; Livi 227.

Head coach Chris Millard said: “This was a terrific effort by all to secure the win. We are known for our great team ethos and this year it has really shown.

“Athletes performing well at their chosen events and then pitching in to score points in less familiar ones. Also, many athletes stepping up age groups just to ensure we have well balanced teams.

“We are looking forward to a strong cross-country showing in the winter and then building on this year’s success.”

As always, new members always welcome and the club is keen to hear from anyone who would like to join our amazing team of volunteers (coaching, officiating, help of any sort). For more information, go to www.nsac.org.uk
