They may have won the award for England Athletic Club of the year in 2016, but Bridgnorth Athletics Club (BAC) shows no sign of resting on their laurels. In the final meeting of the Shropshire Young Athletes League (SYAL) in Oswestry, the club wanted to repeat its record-breaking performance of 2016. Last year they won six of the nine trophies on offer… and this year they set a new record by winning seven.
The girls’ teams had a clean sweep of titles, with the U11, U13, and U15 teams all winning their age groups. The U13 boys also won, while the U11 and U15 boys finished in third place. The girls’ and boys’ squads both won their relative titles, which meant Bridgnorth AC won the overall title as well. Having already won the SYAL cross-country title, Bridgnorth AC will now be concentrating on defending its SYAL Track and Field title in its drive to complete another clean sweep of Shropshire SYAL Athletic titles.
