Ella Keeps on Running!
Friday 7th June 2019
4s student Ella B simply cannot be stopped in her athletic achievements!
Over half-term, she won the 1,500m track race in the Reading Town Meet, which led her to qualify for the Berkshire School Championships in June.
She then set a new personal best of under 5 minutes, coming 2nd in the Berkshire ESSA Meet.
At the end of the week, Ella took part in the Youth Development League for Reading Athletics Club, her first race for her new club. With a fantastic sprint finish she finished second in the 1,500m ‘A’ race.
In doing so, she smashed her 1,500m personal best (which she set two days previously at the English Schools’ Athletic Association Track and Field Cup) to record a time of 4:52.53! This places her 12th in the UK for her age (first year U15 category).
