BAC quartet at Yeovil South West Schools Multi Events

Amelia Dobson, Olivia Galloway, Verity Cowell and Cameron Hale competed in the South West Schools multi events on 27th and 28th June.

Amelia set many PBs (including javelin) in the U15 girl’s pentathlon coming 15th overall, with 2298 points.

Olivia and Verity competed in the U17 women’s heptathlon, being within a centimetre or two of each other in a number of their jumps or throws.

Olivia was just 6 points short of her PB points total, finishing 5th overall with 4105 points. She had PBs in 800m and an outstanding javelin where she came 2nd.

Verity came 13th overall with a PB total of 3,406 points, with PBs in 200m, 80m hurdles, shot and javelin.

Cameron Hale, in his first year at BAC, came 7th overall in the U17 men’s octathlon with a PB of 3,690 points. Cameron had an excellent two days gaining PBs in high jump, long jump, shot, discus and javelin, in which he came 1st.

Their javelin coach, John Hawthorne, must have been very pleased with all 4 gaining javelin PBs. All their club coaches deserve thanks for the time and effort given for coaching the different disciplines over the last year or more.

In addition, Ryan Long, who won U17 men’s octathlon, and Bethan Burley, who came 3rd in U17 women’s heptathlon, train for some of their disciplines at BAC. So credit must go to their coaches who helped them to succeed in this competition.
