A number of the club’s junior athletes were in action at the Essex County Multi Events Championships at Grays last weekend.
Coming the day following the opening days league fixture, it was perhaps surprising that after his exploits over both High Jump and Long Jump, Oliver Early was taking on the U17 Pentathlon - which included a 1500 metre race - but not his speciality event the High Jump. Nevertheless however, with 2457 points, first place was gained.
There was also a first place for Jessica Whiley from the U20 Women`s event, with a score of 2389 points.
Nneka Okoh, with 2329 points, became another medallist, placing third in the U15 Girls competition, whilst Aimee Hickey placed 5th, and Maisie Fulker 7th.
At U17 level, Lucy Wright finished 5th, whilst the U13’s saw Roberta Dines best placed at 5th, with Annabelle Crystall 7th, and Emmie Fulker 13th.
Completing our competitors were Sam Gowen – 6th, and Nicholas Ostaszewski 7th in the U15 Boys competition.
