William is Southern u15B 1500 Champion!

William Rabjohns competed in the South of England Athletics Championships at the Julie Rose Stadium, Ashford last weekend.  On Saturday, in Heat 2 (of 2) he placed 2nd in 4-30.6, out of the 13 runners.  In blustery conditions on Sunday, a tactical Final saw him second at the bell and into the back straight; but a sub-62 final lap gave him the deserved 4-22.67 victory over 10 other athletes.  As a first-year u15 this was another landmark performance.  Also competing, and as first-year u17s, were Will’s sister Isobel who finished 7th (of 10) in the Final of the u17W 800m in 2-28.38; and Liam Nixon, an u17M. Liam ran in the Heats of the 200, clocked 24.3 and did not qualify for the Final. But in the 400 he placed 4th (of 6) in his Heat in 53.67on Saturday; then in Sunday’s Final he placed 5th (of 6) in 54.05.  So all three contested their Finals – a great effort!
