ON Friday Avon’s best young athletes head to Birmingham for the English Schools’ Championships held over two days at the Alexander Stadium.
Hugh Sadler will be looking to bow out of schools’ competitions with a big performance in the 1500m. The BGS student has improved his PB to 3:54.36 this summer so that puts in contention to not just make the final but be a contender for a top six finish.
Castle School, Thornbury, student Hannah Hobbs also makes her final appearance at the event and while A Level studies have disrupted her training she has the potential to be among the front-runners in the senior girls’ 3000m.
