Welsh Schools Championships

7 July, Cardiff

The Welsh Schools Championships draws the best talent, and for U17s it is the opportunity to secure a place in the Welsh Schools team for the annual schools international. Newport athletes were strongly represented and came away with a stack of medals.

U17s Amy Jenkins, Dylan Bevan and David Locke look SIAB bound with victories in high jump, shot and 800m respectively. Amy and Dylan both produced PBs, while David’s win was by a huge margin.

Our other gold medallists were U20s Gwennan Lewis (shot), Caris Morgan (Javelin) and Shireen Balouch (100m hurdles), plus U15 Antonia Dawes in 300m, who knocked a massive 1.23 seconds off her PB to go top of Welsh rankings.

Silver medals went to Remi Adebiyi in U20 1500m and Amelia Fettis in U15 shot.

Bronze medals were won by Shireen Balouch (U20 400m hurdles), Joseph Wayte (U15 200m), Jake Seville (U17 1500m), Ellie-Mae Wainwright (U15 pole vault), Amelia Fettis (U15 discus), Jemima Jenkins (U17 1500m) and Ellie Robinson (U17 3000m).

Full results on Power of 10.
