English Schools Track and Field Championships Manchester 10th-11th July - by David Mills
Congratulations to Samuel Stapley who competed for Surrey Schools in the 800m over the weekend. Samuel recorded another PB, finishing 6th in his race and was the quickest Surrey athlete in the Junior Boys 800m.
Unfortunately Lilah Unwin was prevented from running as her year at school were all isolating. It was particularly disappointing for Lilah as had she equalled her 800m PB set in June, she would have been the 4th fastest on the day.
