Young Louth athletes were in action in the latest match of the UK Youth Development League (Track and Field).

The third match of the Northern Region East Two League was held at Quibell Park, in Scunthorpe, on Sunday where 13 Louth Athletic Club members formed a composite team with Grimsby Harriers.

They finished third of five competing teams on 282 points, behind winners City of York (590) and runners-up Scunthorpe and District AC (366).

It was an excellent day for the Louth contingent, with many personal bests achieved.

Evie Kendrick and Adela Mills were also in the girls’ under 13s 4x100m relay team which finished second, while Bethany Arden and Amelia-Jay Morley were in the under 15s girls’ 4x100m relay team which came fourth.

The girls’ under 15s 4x300m relay team was made up of four Louth athletes - Evie Brooks, Megan Forman, Freya Plaskitt and Kandi Austin – and they finished second.
