Rachael rises to the challenge at Inter-Counties , 29th July 2017

August 30, 2017

Thrower Rachael Wall threw a personal for second place in the B javelin at the annual Under 12 South-East Inter-counties fixture at Kingston.

Despite cross winds and increasingly wet and dreary weather Rachael launcehed the spear out to 27.29m.

In spite of the conditions there were many personal bests from B&H athletes across both scoring and non-scoring events. There were also several athletes who are eligible to compete again next year.

The South-East is the strongest region in the UK and this was reflected in Sussex’s final position in both competitions. Out of the 13 counties participating the Sussex boys came eighth and the girls’ team was ninth.
