Katie Daniels and Sarah Costello did the club proud this weekend, competing in the heptathlon at the English Schools Combined Events Regional Final.
Both girls went with the aim to make the top ten in the challenging competition, which consists of 80m hurdles, high jump, shot, 200m, javelin, long jump and 800m.
They both performed brilliantly, supported each other the whole way through – and both achieved their goal! Katie was 7th and Sarah was 10th in a field of 24 talented athletes from across our region. Even more impressive as they are both just first year U17s! Special mention should go to Katie’s PB javelin throw of 33.95m – the furthest throw in the U17 girls competition.
