ALL four of Warrington Athletics Club’s representatives at the English Schools Championships came away with personal bests – with one even winning a medal.

Three club members ran for Cheshire and one for Merseyside in Manchester at the weekend and it was Evie Schofield who took her place on the podium.

The second-claim Warrington member was second in her 75m hurdles heat in the junior age group, with her new personal-best time of 11.63secs qualifying her for the final.

With medals on the line, Evie stepped up again to lower her best time to 11.50secs and secure a bronze.

Also in the juniors was Lewis Shaw, who was running for Merseyside in the 80m hurdles.

He finished sixth in his heat but his time of 12.26secs – a new personal best – was enough to qualify him for the B final.

In that race, he again lowered his best time to 12.11secs and it almost proved enough to claim victory, but he was beaten into second spot by just one hundredth of a second.

The intermediate age group saw Lisa Halliday run in a straight 300m hurdles final, where she once again improved her best time to 48.65secs to finish in seventh place.

Rounding off the club’s representation was Orla Gregory, who also improved her personal best time in a straight final for the intermediate 1,500m.

She came home ninth in a time of 4mins 34.69secs.

Meanwhile, another of the club’s youngsters was in winning form at Trafford Athletics Club’s latest sprint Grand Prix.

Theo Danquah won his 200m race in a new personal best time of 23.37secs while in the 100m, he finished second in 11.85secs.

Slightly further afield, masters athletes Steve Watmough and Louise Blizzard took to the road for the Wilmslow 10km road race on Sunday.

Watmough came home in 52nd place overall, but his time of 34mins 38secs was good enough to earn him victory in the over 55s age group.

Blizzard was the 35th woman across the line and the fourth woman over 45 – she completed the course in 41mins 24secs saw her finish 281st overall.
