South West Counties Championships

3 Stroud juniors were selected to represent Gloucestershire Exeter today all brought home medals from a very hot Exeter on Sunday.

Charlotte Bell in a strong performance won the Silver medal in the 200m and returned to finish 5th in the 100m.

U13 Amy Jones went in the 800m cruising confidently to 600m and then taking the lead around the final bend before sprinting home to a new PB of 2min 28.4s and the Gold medal.

At the peak temperature on Sunday U17 Lexie Bull lined up in what was a large field for the 800m, combining the U17, U20, and Senior runners. Lexie was looking for a strong performance and made a positive start quickly moving into 2nd place and followed the leader until 650m before sprinting clear to take the race victory and the U17 Gold in 2min 15s to add to her U15 Gold in 2019. Lexie also beat all the U20 and Senior ladies!
