It was a weekend of pb's, including club and county records!
The YDL team travelled to Hastings on Saturday, where a depleted team finished in an excellent 3rd position, with some fantastic performances.
Some highlights from the day were a high jump PB for Tom Ridley (1.64m), and big PB's in the long jump for Emily Dore (4.68m) and Kelsey Sutherland (5.06m), which is ES qualifying for 2017. The final event of the day brought a club record in the U15G 4 x 300m relay where the Worthing team (Eli Middleton, Lauren Felstead, Grace Ballantyne, Eloise Longhurst) had a great race with Hastings to break the club record in 3:11.0.
