Suncream and ice-cream were the order of the day at Warrington's Open Medal Meeting on Bank Holday Monday. Four of our Junior Harriers were in action in very warm conditions and all performed well.
Charlotte Bowker produced a fine effort for 2nd in the U15 girls 800m, her first attempt at an 800m since last September. Her silver medal-winning time of 2.36 knocked some 8 seconds off her previous PB. This was followed up by a creditable 5.78 in the shot for 5th place.
Beth Halliday coped well with moving into the U17 category for the first time in the shot, firing the heavier 4kg shot 5.62m to take first place and her first-ever medal
Jake Walker and John Chaplin both had busy afternoons and produced some promising efforts across a range of events in the U11 boys category. Jake's long jump best of 3.08 caught the eye, while John's 5th in the 75m in 12.5 was also a very good performance.
Well done to all and thanks to the parents and friends who came along to support them. Charlotte and Beth are pictured above with their medals
