Overall 800m Club Record and 2 English Schools Champions
Walton athletes re-wrote the record books last week with two English champions, multiple age group records and a new overall club record.
At the English Schools championships in Birmingham, we had two overall champions in Sophie Mace (Discus) and George Sudderick. George’s 300m time of 35.98s lowers his U15 club record by another 3/10ths, moving him to 12th on the UK all time lists.

Sam Mace took silver in the hammer throw with a huge 63.08m, which is another U17 club record. George also ran in the winning Surrey relay team.
Meanwhile, in Loughborough, Fiona de Mauny took over 1s off the club overall 800m record with 2:09.07 at the British Milers Club Grand Prix.
The senior team was in action at Abingdon in the Southern Athletics League. A solid performance placed the team 3rd in an incredibly close match, only 5 points behind 2nd place Yeovil Olympiads. Duncan Woolmer lowered his masters 800 record to 1:58.5. A full report will follow.
At the Rosenheim League on Wednesday there were two new U17 club records: Charlotte Vaughan ran 2:18.6 for 800m, and Kate Raven ran 60.3 for 400m
