Wimborne travelled to Aldershot for the last Wessex Young Athletics League match of the season and won a low-scoring affair in blazing sunshine, despite not having any under-17 athletes. The under-11’s squad contributed to the success of the day winning the girls section and coming second overall.
Olivia Jones was a big points scorer in the under-13 girls with wins in the hurdles 12.20, the shot 8m32 and the discus 20m20.
Esther Brooks won the long jump 4m07 and Iris Jones took a speedy second place in the 200 metres in 29.20. Isla O’Connor won a very warm 1500 in the under-15s in 5.13.00 and Millie Bowley jumped a graded 4m47 for second place.
Recent winner of the National Prep Schools Championship Harry Ryan again won the Under-13 hurdles in a grade 1 12.30. Zachary Fricker was on top form, winning the long jump with 4m88, his 100 metres race in 13.2 and the 200 in 27.30.
Finley Carvell also won his 100 metres at 13.30 and his 200 in 28.40. Throwers also produced the points with Harry Roscoe winning the shot with 8m61 and the discus 21m21 while Rory Connolly won the javelin in 24m62.
For the under-15s Harry Jones was a big points scorer winning the shot 19m86, the discus 27m31 and was second with a graded javelin with 33m71.
