Athletics: County Championship Success

Monday 14 May 2018

On Wednesday 9th May, we hosted the Bob Tisdall Championships at London Road with some great performances and Shrewsbury dominating in a number of events.

This was a great build up to Saturday's Shropshire County Championships. A squad of 35 athletes were selected to represent the School, our highest entry in a number of years. It was excellent to see the depth of talent we currently have at Shrewsbury. 

Highlights of the day were: 

  • Tom Jackson – 2nd in the 800m 
  • Aaron Lewis – 1st in the Javelin 
  • Francesca Harris – 1st in the 1500m 
  • Monty Hardcastle – 1st in the Long Jump and in the 200m
  • Toby Pattinson – 2nd in the Long Jump 
  • Alfie Biggs – 1st in the Pole Vault 
  • Harrison Cutler – 2nd in the 1500m 
  • Sebastian Price – 1st in the Discus 
  • Jonathan Price – 2nd in the 200m 
  • Abi Watkinson – 1st in the Discus 
  • Owen Mock – 1st in the 400m 

Well done to all who competed. The squad looks strong as we now focus on the School County Championships in early June.
