Boston and District AC members began their season in the Humberside Track and Field League this weekend.

In fine, warm and sunny weather, Hull’s Costello Stadium proved to be an ideal environment for the under 11 and under 13s to compete, with several youngsters getting their first taste of meet action.

Under 11 debutant Macey Andrews won the Whizzer event with a throw of 15m and cleared 2.40m in the long jump.

Jensen Barkworth was third in the boys’ Whizzer.

He also finished fourth in the 80m (14.9 secs) and sixth over 150m (28.1 secs).

David Scott achieved two personal best performances at under 13 level.

He finished fifth in the 100m (17.7 secs) and recorded 2.98m in the long jump.

He then added a time of 20.6 secs, which was enough to claim fifth in the 110m hurdles.

Brandon Andrews was sixth over 100m (16.1 secs).

He also recorded 3.27m in the long jump.

His best shot putt effort of five metres earned him second place in Hull.

All four youngsters combined to contest the under 13s 4x100m relay, finishing third.

Three Boston and District female distance runners competed in the Lincoln 10K Road Race.

Emma Penniston was the first BADAC competitor home. She clocked 49 mins 18 secs and was the fifth 15-19 years female and 139th female overall.

Sarah Swan-Smith (1hr 15 mins 37 secs) was 430th in the female 30-39 age group and Judy Drury (1hr 33 mins 39 secs) 25th in the female 60-plus category.
