E.S.A.A. All England Track & Field Championships 2019 – report


Sam Brereton (Wadebridge) in winning the Intermediate Boys high jump 2.10m at the All England Schools Athletics Championships – held in Birmingham on Friday and Saturday 12th & 13th July – made it three years in a row wins. He again now represents England Schools at the International next Saturday at Newport in Wales.

Cornwall had another winner in new comer Joe Wheeler (Launceston) who won the Junior Boys 300m impressively. His time of 36.01 the best in the UK this year and needless to say an improvement on his county record. Micho Tao (H.Davy) was fourth in the Junior boys 100m. Going into the final he had the fastest qualifying time a National standard 11.22 but he sadly had a poor start in the final. Nate Robins (Penrice) was unlucky to just miss qualifying for the final. These three boys were joined by Isaac Ketterer (Penair) in the junior boys relay running a new county record 45.62 to qualify for the final. A third place in the final was denied them by a change over infringement. Happily the junior boys were rewarded by winning the overall trophy for the minor counties.

Cornwall had another medal with a bronze in the junior girls pole vault Bo Rason (Bodmin) with a personal best and national standard performance of 3.20m.

Choire Lister (Penair) had a personal best run in the Intermediate girls 1500m Steeplechase and Sam Poole (Helston) equalled his personal best in the Intermediate boys long jump qualifying for the final.
