Local athletes will represent their county in the English Schools Athletic Championships at Birmingham this weekend.

Representing Lincolnshire in this prestigious event, the quintet will follow in the footsteps of last year’s Olympic athletes who began their careers in these championships.

In the under-17s, Zoe Lucas (Walton Girls) will contest the 80m hurdles, Oliver Williams (King’s) the long jump, and Joshua Brown (Priory Ruskin Academy) the 400m hurdles.

Naomi Collier (KGGS) will run the under-19 800m and Hannah Dunderdale (Carres Grammar) the 400m hurdles.

Haran Dunderdale (Carres) was selected for the boys’ 2,000m steeplechase but will be unable to compete as he is already selected for the World Youth Championships in Ukraine next week.
