Several Ealing Southall & M iddlesex members finished their season in the Woking Young Athletes Open Championship on Sunday.
The U15 athletes were particularly successful. Aaron Saunders led from the start in the 100m to win comfortably in 11.46, more than two tenths of a second inside his personal best.
Mali Lewis (pictured, with sister Makeda) finished very strongly in the boys 400m, finding himself locked in a very close battle throughout the last 100m and holding on to win by a metre in a fast time of 53.94.
Makeda showed great versatility, winning the javelin with a personal best of 37.58m, taking the silver medal in a very fast 100m race in 12.31 and taking bronze in the long jump.
Latif Yusuf ran a relaxed bend and finished strongly to take the silver medal in the boys 200m. He was closing in rapidly on the leader in the last few strides but the finishing line came too quickly.
In the U17 men's events, Ed Samuel (400m) and Michael Obiri Darko (100m) both reached their finals and finished sixth whilst Tarric Lewis ran a personal best of 25.07 in his 200m heat.
Four U17 athletes from the club represented the London Region in the UK School Games in Bath last weekend. Dewayne Simms won a gold medal in the 4x100m relay.
Running the second leg, he took over in the middle of the field of eight and, after a very strong finish to his leg, he handed over a lead which the athletes on the final two legs extended to give the London team a comfortable victory.
Martha Reynolds stayed with the pace for most of the 1,500m and finished seventh in 4:40.1.
Hammer throwers Amy Clemens and Dempsey McGuigan finished ninth and 10th respectively.
At Abingdon, Claudenia Williams won the 100m and 200m for the South of England in the Inter-Territorial U20 match.
