NASUWT Cymru Cup Finals

11 July, Brecon

This is the annual Welsh Inter Schools Cup Final & Plate Final, where the top teams from the eight Welsh school regions compete against each other. The Newport schools which made it to finals day were Caerleon and Bassaleg. Team managers were Sharon Fletcher for Caerleon and Kath Sage for Bassaleg, both of course being ex-stalwart members of Newport Harriers. Their teams were littered with current Newport Harriers athletes.

Congratulations to Caerleon U16 Girls for winning the Plate competition. Newport Harriers contributions came from Sophie Hill (hurdles), Jemima Jenkins (1500m), Grace Davies (shot), Anabel Pugh (discus), and Gwen Rees Stams (high jump).

Caerleon U14 Girls were 2nd in the Cup Final, just one point behind winners Ysgol y Preseli. Newport Harriers were present via Helena Hawke (hurdles), Alyssa Baker (1500m), Olivia Reid (200m), Emily Grace (300m, long jump), Cate Davies (100m, discus), Erin Jones (800m), and Nia Rees Stams (high jump).

Bassaleg U14 Girls were 2nd in the Plate with contributions from Ellie-Mae Wainwright (hurdles, long jump), Lily Hart (1500m), Libby Davidson (300m), Ceri Griffiths (800m), and Emily Fry (high jump).

At a rough count the coaching stables of Ken/Hilary Goodger and Jonathan Samuel/Rhian Loudon produced 88% of our athletes competing on the day, with notable contributions in hurdles and field events, so well done coaches for the good work.

Full results will appear on Power of 10.
