Sunday 28th May saw a small team of Vale U11’s make a big impact on the Annual Sandra Luke Memorial event at Oxford. With its usual mix of entries from across the South of England, it was as normal, a really good standard of competition. All athletes received points for their performances over 3 events with positions being decided on overall points total, Vale were represented in the Boys U11 and both the Girls U10 & U11 categories.
