Report from Junior Team Managers:
It was yet another hot track meet for Newbury AC on Sunday 15th July at Swindon.
In the quad kids eight girls and seven boys competed out of a maximum of ten allowed in each group. They all did really well and nearly everyone got a PB in this the last match of the season. The girls finished 4th with Anna Delavere continuing her great run and finishing top NAC girl scorer and 5th overall. The boys finished 5th with Ethan Robertson their top scorer finishing 11th overall. Collectively the quad kids finished a fantastic 3rd – they all competed so well and with a great attitude.

Overall Newbury AC finished 4th but, with a number of athletes away, those competing did extremely well on another energy sapping day.
We look forward to more successes in 2019.
