MAC Junior Awards
On Friday 28th April, the Junior section held their annual awards evening at SportsAble for Season March 2016 - April 2017. It was a fantastic evening and well supported by junior athletes, parents, coaches and committee members. There were many award winners from across the board (see all our awards winners below) but The Junior Athlete of the Year Award was awarded this year to Alexander Protopapadakis who has been with the club for six years, has many club records and was the first athlete ever in MAC history to jump over 6 metres in Long Jump which also earned him the Best Individual Performance trophy.  Alexander was also the first MAC junior ever to represent Berkshire at National Sportshall at Manchester last April. Gifts were presented to Steve O'Kelly who is standing down as a Junior Coach; and Cara Phelps and Sam Thornton who are taking a break from coaching but both hoping to return in the future. Maidenhead Athletics Club would like to thank all three of them for their effort and support to all our junior athletes over the years, they will be really missed.
