Bicester AC’s Katie Groves had a productive day at last Saturday’s Bucks Schools Championships held in Milton Keynes. Competing for her school Thornton College, Groves produced a trio of personal bests. Her best placing was in the under 15 girl’s discus where she threw a new personal best and national grade 4 throw of 20.27m for runner up spot. She was just short of a national grade 3 putt in the shot but set another new personal mark of 8.79m in finishing 4th. Groves also sliced 0.7secs in the heats of the 100 metres with a new personal best clocking of 15.1secs.
