South of England Age Group Championships

Cedelle Agyei-Kyem continues her outstanding season on the track with gold over 400metres at the South of England Champs in Ashford, Kent.

Running from lane 3 in blustery conditions, Cedelle ran a very controlled race and timed her victory to perfection, clocking 57:41 and in the process successfully defended her title.

Sister Jeslyn was also in the race, and came agonisingly close to a medal, but finished just outside in 4th place, but was rewarded for her efforts with a new pb of 58:43.

In the under 17 men’s 1500 steeplechase Ross Hurst, having his first season over the barriers took a well deserved silver medal. Having to do the majority of the work Ross just got over taken in the last 200 metres, but he has another year in the age group.

The under 15 girls 300 saw Walton with two representatives in the final, both first year in the age group and both competed admiringly against tough opposition. Annalise Agyei-Kyem came 4th (42:84) and Emma Fisher 5th (43:42).

Other to make the trip down to Ashford, Hayden Evans 39:61 and Jacob Gelona 43:5 U15 300, Chris Vaughan 2:14:90 U15 800, Jack Gemmell 2:07:03 U17 800, Joseph Daws-Twilley 4:29:22 U17 1500 and Rueben Leyland 63:20 U17 400H.

Congratulations to all the Walton athletes on their amazing performances and good luck to those competing in the forthcoming National Champs in Bedford.
