We had several athletes make the entry standard for the English Schools National Championships at Alexander Stadium Birmingham July the 5th and 6th. 47 athletes made the entry and national standard but unfortunately they can only take 25 athletes from our county.
The competition is so strong in Somerset that National or close to National standard seems to be the mark to aim for to get selection.
