Molly Acton continued her fine form this summer with a magnificent victory in a competitive under 15 girl’s 800 metres clocking 2mins 35.7secs. Jess Cherry struck gold twice in the under 20 girl’s triple jump (9.71m) and Shot putt (10.39m). Her latter effort was a new personal best and propelled her to 32nd in the under 20 national rankings for the shot.
Holly Griffiths- brown struck silver twice taking 2nd place in the under 15 girl’s long jump with a personal best effort of 4.72m and in the 200 metres where she clocked 27.8secs. Ben West ran very well for 3rd place in the under 15 boy’s 1500 metres clocking a new personal best time of 4mins 44.2secs.
