Great performances from our U17/U20 team at Wyndley on Sunday with a win for RSC and lots of fantastic individual performances, including (at least) four new club records:

  • U20 long jump – Elliot Walker broke his own club record of 6.20m with a jump of 6.32m. He had a superb series of jumps.
  • U20 triple jump – Elliot Walker with a jump of 12.43m. This breaks the old club record set in 1999 by Adam D’Arcy
  • U17 Pole vault – Bonita Deathridge (2.25m). This was Bonita’s first competition and she breaks the record of 2m set by Charlotte Last in 2012.
  • U17 4kg Hammer  – Chrissie Prince breaking her own record with a throw of 33.46m

Well done everyone – In particular Elliot, Bonita and Chrissie and their coaches (Meg, Ernie and Graham).
