Salopian athletes impress as they beat PBs

Friday 28 May 2021

There’s been a spate of Personal Best records recently for our Salopians.

  • Jonny P (I, LVI) gained a PB of 52.7 for the 400m.
  • Will S (R, V) and Brad K (R, IV) – 1st (4.14) and 2nd (4.21) in the 1,500m.
  • Harry P-M (I, III) set a new PB (4.34.07) in the 1,500m - Harry was ranked 13th in the UK when he set his PB. 
  • Jack K (PH, III) set a new PB, taking almost 30 seconds off his last 1,400m time. He ran in 4.15.81, placing him 6th in the rankings this year for U15s.

Elsewhere members of the RSSH placed 3rd in the boys’ race and 9th in the girls’ race King Henry VIII Relay Race, which was done remotely around the Shrewsbury Park Run route around the Quarry.

The Boys B Team placed 10th, making them the second-fastest B Team of all.

Particular congratulations to Will S (R, V) for posting the 12th-fastest time for an individual boy, and to Sophia U (EDH, V) for the 9th-fastest individual girl.

Well done too to Jack K (PH, III) whose time of 17:49 made him the second fastest U15 runner and the fastest U14.

Master in Charge of Athletics Emma Davis added: "The Athletics Squad are also looking ahead to Saturday 19th June for the Shropshire Schools County Championships – if any more pupils wish to enter please get in contact with me as soon as possible. We hope to take at least 30+ athletes to the event."
