On Saturday it was back to Kingston, this time for the Surrey Schools Track and Field Championships. Having qualified through the South Surrey District competition, several RPAC athletes were in action in a high quality meeting. With a host of strong performances they came away with six medals.
For Katie Mac it was business as usual as she won Gold in the Intermediate Girls Javelin with a throw of 38.75m. Competing in the same age group both Lucy Broderick (800m) and Emiko Salvi (3000m) won Silver medals and Lily Grant took the Bronze Medal in the 300m Hurdles. Vicky Wilkes ran a new PB time of 27.01 on her way to the Bronze medal in the Junior Girls 200m.
In the Junior Boys High Jump, Dan Statham jumped a new PB height of 1.63m. This earned Dan the Bronze Medal and was also a new club U15 boys High Jump record!
There were other notable performances from Poppy Wardley (4th in Senior Girls 1500m), Abbie Owen (4th in Senior Girls 800m), Frankie Evered who came through a gruelling heat in the Junior Girls 800m to take 5th place in the final, Drew Burridge who ran a PB in the heats of the Inter Boys 400m, Rosie Braid who had a big PB in her Junior Girls 200m heat and 5th place for Lily Cain-Jones in the Junior Girls Javelin.
Drew has been on a good run all summer and in his last 300m race (at Finsbury Park on 31st May) he set a new U17 boys 300m club record with a time of 38.77!
