YDL at Poole(May 16, 2015)
Saturday 16th, Haywards Heath Harriers U17 and U20’s competed in the Youth Development League at Poole as part of the Team Sussex team (with Lewes AC and East Grinstead AC). Despite only having the 2 boys from Haywards Heath competing, between them they achieved 3 personal bests and 1 equal best performance. Simeon Cousins, in only his first year as an U20, produced an excellent win in the 400m A String with a huge personal best time of 50.8, followed up by an equal personal best in the 200m A string of 23.2 finishing 3rd. 20 minutes after completing the 200m, he won the 800m A string in 2:05.1. In the younger U17 age group, Christian Lambert ran a personal best in the 100mH A string of 17.0 finishing 3rd, only the second time he has run over the distance, 5th place in the 200m B string with a personal best of 25.7 and competed as an U20 in the Discus with a throw of 17m92, finishing 5th in the A string and throwing a heavier discus than he was used to. Both boys were also part of the U20 4 x 100m relay team where they finished 2nd in 47.2. With a small team, Team Sussex finished 7th and are currently lying 6th in Division 1 (having just been promoted from Division 2).
