English Schools Athletics Champs in Gateshead
Alex Brown competed at the weekend in the Junior Boys High Jump did very well indeed to finish 7th out of 17, jumping 1m72cm. Although this was down on his best of 1m78cm competitors across the board faced unfavourable conditions, and Alex, in his first major championship, had a great result.
Laurie Dawkins competed in the Senior Girls javelin. With a year in hand in this age group, and with mixed form leading up to the event, Laurie threw a very impressive 41m05cm (National Standard) to take 3rd place and to reassert herself as one of the very best in her age group in the country.
An excellent showing from the two Taunton School athletes!
