The weekend before last saw the Masters and U13 Kent County Championships at Erith. With the rain coming earlier than anticipated it made for a horrible damp and cold day. In the U13 Champs Jessica Penny won her 70m H heat (12.39s) qualifying her for the final. In the final she won the silver medal (12.19s) just 100th off gold. Jess Rayner ran a PB in the 1200m (4m 32.05s) coming 5th. Sister Izzy competed in the javelin in horrendous conditions finishing in 7th place. Joe Stone won his 100m heat (13.90s) and came 5th in the semi-final in the exact same time. Joe just missed out on a medal in the long jump coming 4th 4.29m. Jacob Kemmit ran the 800m (3m00.10s). Due to the inclement weather the next day of the Championships had to be cancelled.
