ATHLETICS: Grantham AC youngsters represent Lincs

Have your say

Lincolnshire competed against Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Northamptonshire in the Inter-Counties Sportshall Athletics tournament with members of Grantham Athletic Club in the team.

The under-11 boys finished fourth overall and included Grantham AC’s Matthew Dunstan and Imam Abduhlrahman. Rachel Justice was in the under-11 girls who also came fourth.

In the under-13 girls, Helena Proctor’s best performance was fifth in the vertical jump, Coral Willan-Dobner finished fourth in the speed bounce, and Mary Justice came seventh in the standing triple jump.

A hard fought competition ended in the Lincolnshire team finishing in fourth place overall, with the county unable to provide competitors from schools in the under-13 boys, under-15 girls and under-15 boys age categories.
