Sam Soars To New Heights.
Sam Brereton (Wadebridge) was the star performer at the 66th Cornwall Schools Athletics Championships on Saturday at Par Track. His jump of 2.01 m in the Inter Boys high jump erased a 25 year old record.
Pleasing too was to see a resurgence of sprint performances. Senior girl Hannah Smith (Truro & Pen Coll) & Kaya Cairney (Truro & Pen. Coll) both won 100 m with English Schools entry standard performances. These were joined by Charlie Sharp (Pool) in the Inter Boys 200 m and no less than 3 junior boys doing entry standard Micho Tao (H.Davy), & Harry Gurr (Penryn) in both the 10m & 200m & Henry Curtis (Saltash) in the 80 m hurdles.
There were three other performances that achieved entry standard Aaron Worgan (R.Lander) in the Inter Boys discus, Lucy Allen (Helston) in the Junior Girls pole vault & Grace Brock ( Truro & Pen Coll) in the Senior Girls 1500 m.
There were a further thirty-plus County Standard performances with a team of 41 athletes selected to represent Cornwall at The SW Schools Athletic Championships at Exeter next Saturday.
