EA U20/U17/U15 Indoor Champs report

This weekend saw the England Athletics U20/U17 & U15 Indoor Championship. This is an annual event which takes place at the England Institute of Sport in Sheffield. Whilst it’s an ‘open’ competition, every athlete needs to meet qualifying times before they can enter the competition. Three Hillingdon athletes chose to make the trip. It’s an exciting event with the best of the crop showcasing their skills over two full days of events, all of which are live streamed – so you can watch it on the telly! Parents who accompany their athletes have the joy of buying tickets to watch their children.

Charlie Reed U15B 800m
A great run on Saturday afternoon with a PB 2:05:55 to qualify for the final on Sunday. The final was a fast pace & Charlie came in fifth.

Isabella Phillips U15G 200m
The first race of the day on Sunday and a fast run, a new PB 26:00, which gave her a qualifying place in the semi finals. The semi’s were tough and Isabella did not go through to the final.

Dejean Jarrett U15B 200m
In the third heat and the boys fly round the track, unfortunately DeJean did not qualify for the semi finals.

A huge commitment shown by these athletes & their family to attend this event & they all did really well. Hillingdon AC was very well represented by these young athletes & there is definitely more to come from ALL our junior athletes as the main season commences in April.
