SEAA U15/U17 Indoor Champs


George Sudderick kicked off his 2018 campaign where he left off last season with a scintillating victory over 300 metres at the South of England Champs. Running from Lane 5, with gasps from the crowd, George flew round the track to stop the clock at 36:72, to go to number 2 on the all time under 15 Boys Indoor 300 Rankings.

Newcomer Charlie Hawkins in his first ever competitive race for the club did himself proud and came away with the bronze medal in the 300 metres in 41:22.

Tyler Panton moving up an age group this year also had a good Championships, on day one he made the Semi Finals of the U17 men’s 60metres running 7:30. Then on day two he ran a superb 200 in 22:90 to pick up the silver medal in a high
quality field.

The Agyei-Kyem sisters, Jeslyn and Cedelle both competing for the first time in a Walton vest continued the medal haul with impressive performances. Jeslyn took the Silver medal in the under 15 girls 200 in
26:53 and placed 5th in the 60 metres on Day one in 8:09. Older sister Cedelle took bronze in the U17 women’s 400 in 60:07.
