On Sunday 18th August BACAC’s U15 Girls and U17 Women 4 x 100m relay squads travelled up to Birmingham’s Alexander Stadium to take part in the Club Connect Relays at the Diamond League. This was a great opportunity for the eight girls and their families as the teams are invited on their Power of 10 rankings. Our U15 team consisted of Etienne, Kaylen, Gracie and Ruby with the U17s made up of Tia, Serena, Leah and Zari. After taking part in the relays the girls had the opportunity to watch the last Diamond League to be held at the Alexander Stadium before it’s major redevelopment.
The U15s raced first with Etienne running leg 1 handing to Kaylen with Gracie on 3rd and Ruby bringing the team home in 5th in 51.51 a seasons best.
The U17s raced second with Tia leading off handing to Serena, then Leah on leg with Zari anchoring the team home in 4th in 51.34.
