Francesca stars as Nene Valley’s teen talents impress in Eastern Young Athletes League

Nene Valley Harriers’ under-15 girls pulled off a fine victory in their Eastern Young Athletes League fixture at the Embankment Track – and the under-15 boys almost emulated them when finishing as runners-up.

Francesca Fenwick pulled off a fine hat-trick of wins for the-under 15’s. She clocked 12.1secs to cross the line first in the 75m hurdles and added to this with first places in both the high and long jumps. Milli Weller won the B high jump, too.

There were B string victories for middle distance runners Amelia Devine and Chelsie Bole while Tilly Szarawarski won both the B discus and javelin.

George Harrison was the winner of the under-15 boys hammer with a throw of 41.38m and he also won the B discus.

Angus Bowling cleared 2.70m to win the pole vault – and there were B firsts for Seth Carew over 300m and Harry Hewitt in the 1,500m.

Under-13 Katie Marsh had a day to remember winning the 100m in a time of 14.2 along with the 70m hurdles and long jump.

Charles Molyneux won the under-13 boys shot with a 10.54m throw and then proceeded to finish first in the 100m with a 13.0secs clocking.

Edward Lindsell ran a time of 5.53.8mins to win the 1,500m, before finishing first in the B shot.

Under-17 girl Ella Robinson was in fine form with a win in the 800m, while Molly Peel ran 4.50.1mins for first place in the 1,500m.

  • Veteran Nene Valley Harrier Paul Parkin clocked 44.33secs for 103rd place in the Trentham 10k.

The Spalding-based athlete is best known for finishing second in the Great Eastern Run back in the 1990s, and is now competing again with a more relaxed approach after a break of several years.
