Warwickshire, Leicestershire & Rutland County Championships 25th - 26th May

There were some great results from the Warwickshire, Leicestershire & Rutland County Championships which were held at Saffron Lane Athletics Stadium on Saturday 25th May and Sunday 26th May.

Five Coritanian athletes recorded new County and Club records in a variety of events.

Ben Dijkstra U15b ran 4.12.19 for 1500m and replaced the County Record which had stood since 1970 and had previously been held by Richard 'Dick' Callan. Knowing that his record was in likely to fall to the youngster, Dick went to Saffron Lane especially to watch the race. Dick currently holds the club record for this event but Ben's personal best is only three seconds outside of this time.

Rianna Kidd U15g recorded 1.80m in the pole vault, whilst Caitlin Harding u15g leapt to 10.09 in the triple jump and both of these are new county and club records.

Alistair Finlay U15b ran his 300m in 38.98 and Sally Preston U20 women threw the hammer 41.44m and again both of these are county and club records.

The full results of the competition can be found on the www.powerof10 website and on the results page.
