Competing in the Wessex Young Athletes’ League at Woking, Gordon cleared 1.68 metres in the under-17 women’s high jump.

William Squires (pictured) was another grade one performer, setting a new club record of 12.7 to win the 75m hurdles.

The U13 girls scored well through Elsa Smith, Freya Bradfield, Lilly Jones, Lucy Presley, Anise Mellodey (13.3s), Bella Smith, Abigail Blake and Amelia Gordon.

The best field result came in the javelin where Blake (20.03 metres) and Jasmine Gordon (19.83) pulled off an A/B double.

The 4x100m relay team of Jones, Thurbon-Smith, Mellodey and Smith sprinted home second in 57.3.

In the U15 girls’ events, Caitlin Smith broke her recently established javelin record with 32.80, while Rebecca Mitchell came second in the A 1500m (5.17.80).
