Bronze Medal at English National Schools 4x100m Relay

3

Bethany Shaw in Year 11 competed at the County Athletics Championships winning her100m final to gain a place in the Hertfordshire Athletics team. This has been an ambition of Bethany’s and she has come so close to qualifying for the last four years we were so pleased that this year she did. Bethany travelled up with the team on Thursday 6th July to Alexander Stadium in Birmingham. On Friday Bethany had her heat for the 100m and ran 12.46 qualifying for the semi final. In the semi final she ran 12.51 and came 16th out of 38 overall. This is an amazing achievement as the competition is for the best athletes in the country.

Bethany then ran the first leg in the 4x100m relay, they qualified for the final and ran it in 47.4 seconds gaining a bronze medal. Bethany said “It has been such a good weekend, I’ll be back next year”

Congratulations from the STAGS community- it goes to show that hard work and determination really does pay off.
