CITY of York Athletic Club were the big winners at the Yorkshire Championships in Cudworth, taking 53 of the 365 medals available.

Their nearest rivals, Sheffield & Dearne, amassed 15 fewer at the two-day event near Barnsley.

On an individual level, meanwhile, there were two championship records broken, one equalled and a new personal best set.

In total, York competitors brought home 15 gold, 20 silver and 18 bronze medals.

The Yorkshire Championships are open only to competitors born or residing in the county. City took a team of 69 athletes to the meet, which featured 669 in all, ranging from under-13s to seniors.

Eight-time British shot put champion Scott Lincoln broke a 57-year-old Senior Men’s record with his best-ever season-opening throw of 19m.

York had eight multiple winners in Christina Nick (senior discus gold, senior shot put silver), Lucy Hadaway (U20 long jump gold, U20 100m hurdles gold, U20 shot put silver), Maria Schofield (U20 hammer gold, U20 shot put bronze), Rebecca Lister (U20 long jump bronze, U20 javelin bronze), Harley Wilson (U15 javelin gold, U15 discus silver), Louis How (U15 800m silver, U15 300m silver), Kathryn Clague (U13 shot put gold, U13 high jump silver, U13 long jump silver) and Esme Pounder (U13 high jump gold, U13 80m silver, U13 long jump bronze).

City enjoyed monopolies on the U20 Women’s long jump top three - with Amy Rolfe joining Hadaway and Lister on the podium - as well as the U13s’ edition of the event, where Emily Maude sailed past the U13 long jump record with a 4.83m leap to take the gold, and the U13 high jump, where Pounder’s 1.48-metre effort equalled the competition’s best for the age bracket.

Daniel Fleming, Reece Middleton, Ruth Hurst and Charlotte Stamp were the other medal-winning seniors, while Oliver Wright, Edward Lake, Ben Schofield, Ben Wittaker, Tegan Wilson and Amelia Bunton joined the list of successful U20s. Alfie Bugg, Luke Robinson, Ben Pearson, Jessica Crosby, Natalya Aspinal, Katie Robinson, Hannah Ellam, Eleanor Armstrong and Isabel Malique all placed top-three for the U17s, as did Samuel Schofield, Aaron Rutter, Joshua Moss, Gianluca Mastrolonardo, Jacob Hopkin, Isaac Henson, Alice Hadaway and Isabel Lee for the U15s.
