Another title for U13 Girls at Essex Road Relays

24 Apr 2022

The winter season was brought to its conclusion with the Essex Road Relays, staged at Colchester - and it brought another title for our U13 Girls squad. Lottie Wilkin lead off for the team and was to record the best time for this age group. Amelia Shipton and Ezrah Harrold, whose time almost matched Lottie`s, completed a comfortable victory. Indeed our B team were to take second place, through Ava King, Erin Kelly and Isabelle Eide. 

Another Gold medal winning team came via the Under 17 Women, with Sophie Cottam, Kiera Atkinson and Larna Morgan. 

It was to be Silver for our Senior Women, with Rebecca Luxton, Rachel Broome and Megan Williams - and also the Under 13 Boys team of Joshua Eida, Ben Smith and Austin Kelly - whilst the Under 15 Girls were to be third (Sienna Shipton, Kayleigh Atkinson and Amelia King).

Only the Senior Men were to miss out on a rostrum place although in reality the squad consisted of veterans and under senior age level athletes.
