Neither of the U17s, Harry Kettle or Hannah Thear, got what they wanted from the evening, with Harry running 2.07.52, well outside English Schools qualifying, and Hannah 2.33.81.
There was a mixed evening for the 1500m runners. U17 Will Perkin was in the men’s A race and ran a well-paced race to finish second in 4.01.33 for a good PB, which puts him 15th in the national rankings. In the B race U20 Jonty Wager-Leigh was fresh from a PB of 4.06.11 at Watford on Wednesday. After a strong early pace, Jonty faded slightly to be second in 4.09.46, still a good effort.
The F race saw good runs from Seb Mills (U17) with a season’s best 4.39.61, U15 Cameron Reid a well-paced run for 4.41.61, and yet another PB for U13 Angus Williams of 4.42.58 – putting him 14th nationally. The G race saw George Brown (U17) and Nathan Hackley (U13) just off their best with 4.53.56 and 5.08.79 respectively.
For the girls, the D race saw great runs from U15 Robyn Watkins with a PB of 5.01.34, and a strong season’s best from U17 Orla Fawcett with 5.05.01.
