The photo shows Gemma Knight and Isabelle Knight who are mother and daughter and both members of Rugby &Northampton AC. Gemma recorded a County age group record in the 200m but, not to be outdone, Isabelle recorded three grade 1 performance two of which are County records. Isabelle is one of the age group best performance winners.
After the Warwickshire County Track and Field Championships, we look at all of the performances to determine the winners of some awards. As you can imagine, it can be quite difficult to compare performances across different events and different age groups so a big thank you to Bob Carey (Trophies Secretary) and his team for their efforts and deliberations.
An award is given to the best performance in each age group. These are :-
SenW Emily Madden Forman Stratford Upon Avon A.C. High Jump 1.76
