Radley in Medal Bonanza – Bucks & Oxon Championships
Led by Alexandra Cross, Radley won medals galore in the Oxon and Bucks Championships at Horspath on Saturday and Sunday. Radley stole the show with more than 40 county champions across a multitude of age groups.
Cross had three outstanding wins in the under 13 girls category. She won the 100m in a championship record of 13.32secs and the 70m hurdles in 13.11. She then equalled the long standing high jump best of 1.45m – a record that has stood since 1979.
Phillippe Essink grabbed under 20 men’s titles in the 400m(50.66) and 800m (1.58.12), while George Miller was a convincing winner in the under 20 men’s 2,000m steeplechase, clocking 7.07.78.
Alastair Duncan belied his years with an outstanding championship record of 25.02 secs in the 200m. Radley duo Kay Reynolds and Natasha Mighty shone amongst the women. Reynolds continues to set a great example for younger athletes in her attitude and application in the sprints and hurdles, while former combined eventer Natasha Mighty lived up to her name with a fine championship record of 11.23m in the shot.
