NO less than 22 out of the 24 members of the Buckinghamshire team for the South East U11 Sportshall Championships were from Marshall Milton Keynes AC, and they did the club proud.
So the long trip south to The Triangle, Burgess Hill, was very much a club affair, but unfortunately it was made longer by a ‘temperamental’ coach (motor coach not athletics coach!).
Arriving a little late, and with little time to warm up properly, the first event was the girls obstacle race and it did not start well, with Isobel Blake stumbling after the speed bounce element. But she recovered well to allow the rest of the team – Millie Handley, Abi Fittton and Evie Jarman – to take 2nd place.
