A total of seven young Pembrokeshire Harriers competed for their country over the last week. Last Saturday (16th July), 5 athletes travelled to Ashford, Kent as part of the Welsh Schools Team competing in the annual SIAB event.

Lydia Thomas ran a great race and just missed out on the Bronze Medal finishing 4th

A fantastic day for fantastic athletes !

Lydai, Shaun, Aaron, Lucy and Abbie

Last night ( 20th July ), Matthew Williams and Abi Buxton competed in the U20 International against England and Welsh Schools. Matthew ran a strong race and came 3rd overall ( 2nd in the competition ) with a time just outside his pb. Unfortunately, Abi sustained an injury on her 2nd jump and had to pull out of the event.

So, a great few days for the athletes and their families. More to come from them in the future and also from others progressing through the Club ranks,.
