Oxford Juniors in Record-Breaking form at Bournemouth
Published: 28 April 2017
The Wessex Leagueï¿½match at Bournemouth on April 23rdï¿½saw warmer weather than predicted, and that sunshine certainly did the teams no harm at all, with too many PBs to mention.ï¿½The standoutï¿½performance ofï¿½the day was from U17 Ella Turner, who broke theï¿½Wessex League record with a brilliant 25.10 in the 200m. Other notable records to fall were in the under 13 boys match, where first Moses Sadler broke a 9 year old club record by winning the under 13 boys 200m in a time of 26.4s. Henry Channon then went on to break a 26 year old club record in the 800m, winning in a time of 2:16.8. The under 11 Quadkids were not to be outdone, with Maisee Simms breaking the vortex throw record with 33.09m, previously held by Annie Sutcliffe, and Annie Jonkers breaking the Quadkids points score with a total of 243, previously held by Olivia Barton. Other u13B wins came for Moses Sadler, doubling up to win the 100m in 13.2s and the long jump with 4.12m, Thomas Cove winning the B string 200m in 30.0s, and a storming 4 x 100 relay which Oxford won following a lightning last leg from Moses. For the under 13 girls there were a string of strong performances from Olivia Barton (B string 100m and A string 200m wins), Olivia Martin and Clover de Jonge winning the A and B string 1200m (3:59.40 and 4:07.50), Maisie Westbrook and Lily Peach the A and B string 70mH (12.9s and 15.2s), Imigen Bowen and Olivia Barton the A and B string long jump (4.41m and 4.32m), Maisie Westbrook and Olivia Jones the A and B string high jump (1.40m and 1.10m),ï¿½ Emma Wardle the A string discus and B string javelin (14.34m and 17.99m), Lily Peach the A string javelin (24.10m), finishing with second place in the 4 x 100m relay. The U15B enjoyed wins for Alex Turnbull in the 100m and 200m (12.1s andï¿½24.3s) and Ben Davies in the A string 1500m (4:44.4s). Jack Judson competed valiantly for the U17 boys but was a one man team. For the under 15 girlsï¿½Frankie Powell and Daisy Palmer took 1st place in their 100m and 800m respectively, while Laura Goulden won the B string 300m in 50s.ï¿½ï¿½ The girls U17 team was just 4-strong, but were 1st or 2nd in every event they entered, and 4 people is all you need to winï¿½the relay! Oxford ended up third overall in the match.
