Bury AC’s under-11s produced the club’s result of the day at the first meeting in the Greater Manchester Sportshall Athletics League at SportCity in Manchester.

The league provides competition for clubs in the county with events for athletes in the U11, U13 and U15 age categories and Bury’s U11s girls were fourth out of the eight teams.

Good performances came individually for Myla Bryan (third in the vertical jump), Claudia Chapman (third in the one-lap race), Mylah Collier (fifth in the standing long jump) and Kathryn Wolstenholme (fifth in the three-lap race). The girls took third in the obstacle race and third in the two-lap relay.

The U13 girls took fifth place overall. Agatha Wragg had a busy afternoon, winning the six-lap race and taking second in the speed bounce, while Lois Green took fifth in the standing triple jump and Laila Musvamhiri took fifth in the shot and sixth in the six-lap. The girls took fourth in the two-lap relay. Summer Barlow was the sole U15 representative, taking third place in the speed bounce.

The U11 boys’ team took sixth place. Luca Abeng was third in the speed bounce and fourth in the standing long jump, while Luca Hilton took third in the one-lap race and Nathaniel Armstrong was fourth in the vertical jump. The boys placed fifth in the obstacle race.

Henry Cooper was the sole competitor for Bury in the U13 boys’ competition and claimed third in the standing triple jump and shot and seventh in the standing long jump. He single-handedly took seventh place for Bury.

With the parkrun at Heaton Park not taking place on Saturday, some club members travelled further afield for competition.

Luke Harreld took an excellent second in the Stretford Parkrun with 16mins 31secs, while triathlete Matt Garside took second at Bolton in 20:01. Sarah Thomas came second in the Worsley Woods event with a course personal best of 19:48 and Byron Edwards placed seventh in the Alexandra Parkrun with 17:22.

This weekend will see the second of the series of four Red Rose Cross Country League fixtures at Bolton’s Leverhulme Park.
