HAVERING MAYESBROOK'S under-20 team registered their best result of the summer when they finished third at Braintree in their Thames Division fixture on Sunday.
Andy Lewis and Nicola Hill provided the only wins, but there were many personal bests. Lewis won the 400m, was second in the 200m and third in the 100m, as well as running both relays.
Hill won the 100m hurdles, was third in the 100m sprint and B shot, as well as running the 4x100m relay.
Runner-up spots went to throwers Amy Cox (hammer), Katherine Knight (discus PB), Kike Oniwinde (javelin), Holly Thomas (long jump PB) and Ingrid Deane (3,000m). For the A string men, second places went to Bradley Reece (hammer PB) and Adam McCarthy (400m hurdles).
There were medals galore from club athletes competing in borough colours at Saturday's Essex Schools' Championships at Chelmsford.
Jack Edgar-Hill and Kike Oniwinde both set club records in winning gold in their events. Edgar-Hill smashed the club under-17 100m hurdles record set back in 1992 - the year before he was born - with his 13.50 heat time, and won gold by a large margin with 13.68 into a strong headwind.
