Team manager Michael salutes Westbury young women after medal success

Then and now: The successful Westbury Harriers’ girls

WESTBURY Harriers’ team manager/coach Jason Michael has paid a special tribute to his under 17 women’s team after their medal-winning performance at the Midland Counties Young Athletes’ Road Relays yesterday.

The trio of Rhiannon Paton, Rosie Hamilton James, Kate Howard won the bronze medals – three years after they won silver in the under 13s age group.

“This group of girls along with the under 17s, who didn’t race, have such a strong bond, “ said Michael.

“They race together and are friends away the sport. It has been great to watch over the years.”
