West Yorkshire Track & Field League – Meet 2

West Yorkshire Track and Field League – Fixture 2 – 11th May 2022


The first fixture of the league had set a high bar in terms of the number of athletes competing, effort levels and performance. The second fixture has now raised the bar even higher. There were 29 athletes competing – maybe a record for us? – and in total they produced 59 performances. It was hard to keep up with events and everywhere we looked there were amber vests competing.

We are not lucky enough to have a track to train on at Neiley but despite this we are able to compete with many clubs who do, and this is a great credit to the athletes. To watch the mature and composed way the Juniors approached and competed in their events was really pleasing. It was also notable how much they have taken on board in training as they did there best to replicate it in the competition.

With such a large team and so many individual achievements it would not be fair to single anybody out for special mention and so below is a breakdown of all athlete’s results – the number of personal bests speak for themselves. For the full meeting results please see the link at the end:

Also, if anybody wants to join in and compete in the league it’s not too late to enter, there are still 5 fixtures remaining. The next fixture is Wed 1st June and entries need to be in by 25th May – see John McFadzean for an entry form.
