County Championships


Report on the Oxon event


Seb Hartwell raised the bar to win the under fifteen boys high jump over the weekend at Horspath in the Oxfordshire Athletic Championships. The Banbury Harrier also claimed two other titles the long jump and 200metres. In both the jumps he claimed personal bests, 1m 62cm in the high and 5m21cm in the long.

 The damp conditions of the track would not offer fast times but Hartwell claimed the 200m title beating specialist sprinter and club mate Jordon Dunn into second place.

 In both the male and female events there was plenty of joy for the club. Alfie Rowett did not allow the conditions stand in his way and again show why he is the top under seventeen in the sprints in the county, winning both the 100 and 200metres with ease. Nathan Grieveson also won the javelin title and Michael Dawes the discus in this age group.  Luke Sherlock despite going close to a personal best had to settle for second place in the 800metres.

  In both the senior 100 and 200metres Kyle Ennis had to settle for second places to Ramone Smith. Both finals were really close, but prior to the championships Smith had achieved faster times.

 In both the senior and junior discus events Periss Wilkins and Tomaze Napiorkowski took the titles. The younger man also won the shot and increased his personal best in both. Alex Brown gained second place in the javelin with another throw of close to 50metres.

  Owen Knox lowered his personal best in the under thirteen 1500metres to claim second place and Theo Williams collected silver in the high jump and bronze in both the 75metre hurdles and long jump.

 In the female events Naomi Anderson captured the under seventeen’s 100metres title, as did Shana Parker in the senior long and triple jumps.

 In the under fifteen age group titles went Evie Hawkins in the long jump,  Paige Cooper in the shot and Shannon Dawes in the javelin which she did with a personal best. Rebecca Scott gained three second places and two personal bests in long jump and 300metres, the third in the high jump.

 Abbey Anson took the 100metre title, she had to settle for second in the 200m, as did Helen Dubber in the 75metre hurdles.

 Maddy Cooper collected well deserved medals in three events , with a personal best gained in the long jump.
