Ten represent Essex at English Schools Championships

14 Jul 2019

Ten Chelmsford AC athletes were in action representing Essex at the prestigious English Schools Championships in Birmingham on Friday and Saturday.

It was the Shot Put that saw the most success.  Recent joiners Lola Kuponiyi (Intermediate Girls) and Alexandrea Adeniji (Senior Girls) claimed Silver and Bronze medals respectively.  Nathan Bushnell was just outside the medals, with fourth in the Intermediate Boys event, while Jess Hopkins and Toni Egbulefu were fifth and eighth respectively in the Senior Girls competition.  Maegan Hopkins claimed a very creditable eleventh place in the Junior Girls event.

On the track, Lily Parris (Intermediate Girls 400mH) and Kissiwaa Mensah (Junior Girls 100m) both progressed through the Final of their events – while Mia Chantree was third in her Heat of the Senior Girls 400mH, and Oliver Early fifth in his Heat of the Intermediate Boys 100mH.

Congratulations to all ten athletes for their selection at this pinnacle event.
