Two Golds for Moreton at County Athletics Championships

Two Golds for Moreton at County Athletics Championships

Eighteen Moreton girls competed in the Shropshire County AA Championships in Telford on Saturday 12th May. This was a ‘warm up’ event for many, before the team competitions start later this month. The standard of the competition in most events is extremely high as they are competing against county standard athletes from a number of clubs, all of whom train regularly throughout the year.

The following won medals in their respective events – 

Lanxi Benady – 1st U13 High Jump
Ellie Russell – 1st U13 1500m, 2nd U13 Javelin, 3rd U13 Hurdles
Emma Tilley – 3rd U15 1500m
Miranda Tate – 2nd U17 High Jump (PB 1.50m) 

Other excellent performances were from Olivia Papaioannou finishing 4th in a very competitive 100m and high jump. Jemima Scorer was 4th in the javelin, throwing over 23m. As well as her gold medal in high jump, Lanxi Benady finished 4th in both 200m and long jump.
