County Successes
The county teams celebrated some individual successes at the CAU & British Athletics Cross Challenge on
Saturday 7th March at Cofton Park, Birmingham as featured in the photograph. Jasmine Cooper (Derby AC) won
the British Athletics overall Cross Challenge for Under 15 Girls when finishing 40th in the Inter-County race; Hugo
Milner (Derby AC) was runner-up in the Under 17 Men’s race series when he finished 14th on the day. Both
athletes are featured in the attached photo proudly showing their glass trophies. The county congratulates their
achievements; and for all the runners who represented Derbyshire on Saturday. The Committee also thanks the
coaches and parents who came to support the teams and offering to Team Manage the 10 teams.






There have been other county successes during the winter season over cross country, road and indoor track &
field.
Daniel Haymes (Derby AC) earned an International call-up recently for the Dublin 5km road race.
Yasmin Miller (Derby AC) won bronze in the British Indoor Championships in early February at the EIS, Sheffield.
Niamh Emerson (Amber Valley & Erewash AC) earned her first GB vest for an U20 Indoor Pentathlon in France
against France and Spain. Although she was the youngest competitor she took 3rd place. Her selection followed
her runner-up place in the U20 English Indoor Combined Events. Niamh has certainly excelled in several events
and we look forward to further success over the coming outdoor season and years to come.
Not to be outdone at the Regional SportsHall competition in Grantham the Under 13 Girls & Boys teams finished
1st to earn a place in the National Finals in April. On the same day the U11 Boys were 1st, U11 Girls 3rd, and both
U15 teams were 2nd. Congratulations to all our SportsHall teams and Team Managers on a very successful day.
