The annual U13 Southern Inter-Counties Track and Field Championships took place at Kingston on Saturday. With 13 counties taking part (!) Surrey as ever fielded strong teams with the girls taking 2nd place behind Kent and the boys 3rd behind Essex and Hertfordshire.
Three young RPAC athletes were in the Surrey Squad and ran for the county in the non scoring 800m. The girls was split into two 800m races and Shakila Keable (just returned from two weeks in Spain), won her race in 2.30.69 with Lilah Unwin then winning the second race with a big PB time of 2.30.98! Both girls times would have been good enough for 1st place in the B string race and beat a few in the A string for good measure!
Samuel Stapley ran a strong race and took 3rd place in the boys in a field of 12 with a time of 2.25.66.
Congratulations to all three on their first Track and Field competition for Surrey.
