Four IEK represent Kent in u-17 Regional Inter-County match

Sam Hudson improved his 1,500m steeplechase best by almost 4 seconds when finishing 6th A string in 5mins 08.4 at Stevenage. Twin brothers Ben and Jacob Burton again showed their Decathlon potential, each representing the county in 3 events : both were 6th in A & B Triple Jump where each posted over 11 metres - both contested 400m hurdles where Ben (up against UK No. 2 Sean Adams from Southampton) posted a time to put him in the country's top 50, while Jacob's 62.1 in the B race puts him in the top 150. To round off a busy afternoon, Jacob was 4th in 400m (B) and Ben 5th in 800m (B). Kieran Reilly crossed the line 3rd in a tactical 1,500m to win the B race and then went on to 5th in 800m (A) where he posted his 3rd consecutive sub-2 minute time. Beth Burnett was 3rd Kent finisher in the 3,000m and finished 11th in 12mins 58.9 For results click underlined text...[doc:698]
