UK Schools Games  -   Bath     August 30-31st 2008

Beth, oh so close in the 3000m

Representing the South East, Beth Carter finished an excellent 2nd in the U-17 Womens 3000m at the UK School Games in Bath. Beth tracked English Schools & National AA champion Laura Park (Cumbria) in a fast opening phase as they pulled away from a class field to establish a half-lap lead : coming off the last bend absolutely level, Park was forced to a record her personal best of 9:39.22s to hold off Beth's electric finish, just 3 tenths behind in 9:39.52s.

 

Just to cap a good day, England South East won the U-17 Women's match outright, with Wales finishing second.
