38 young athletes from Kent competed on Saturday 4th March in the South East Regional Final at Burgess Hill against five other counties.

3 of those athletes were from Bexley AC: Jessie Sargeant, Emily Frimpong and Jacob Calvert.

In the U13 Girls

Emily ran the fastest time in the heats (53.2s) in the 4 Lap Race and won gold in the final (52.6s). She also won another gold in the Vertical Jump with 64cm. She had been invited to the National Sportshall Final in Manchester for best Vertical Jump in the UK this year, but unfortunately was unable to attend. Well done Emily!

Jessie ran the 6 lap in 1:35.2. Being the youngest Kent athlete at only 11 and one (if not the) youngest at the final, she held her own amongst girls much older than her, so well done Jess!

In the U15 Jacob

Jacob ran the 2 Lap Race in 24.5s and threw 8.10m in the Shot Put, a pb. He also jumped 2.22m in the Standing Long Jump, also a pb. Well done Jacob!

Full results can be found in the 2017 Results Section.


Well done Team Bexley!
