HAVERING MAYESBROOK'S Georgie Taylor went to the top of the 2009 national rankings when she again added to her club under-13 girls' discus record at Chelmsford on Sunday.

The impressive Taylor threw a superb 32.31m - the 10th longest discus throw ever by an under-13 girl, while she also added a B shot victory and high jump points.

The under-13s have struggled all season, but on the day produced the best result, placing second.

Sprint find Tia Telford-Dickson recorded a double win in the 100 and 200m and Rebecca Fox was the B string discus winner. Rachel Forder's PB earned her A shot runners-up points and Lydia Hallam was also second in the 1,500m.

Multi-eventer Josh Olawore also bettered a under-15 boys' club record, when he ran 11.4 seconds in the 80m hurdles, but had to settle for second spot behind English Schools' medallist Chris Gaddes.

Olawore also added PBs in 100m and long jump. Danny Wilson threw over 40m again in winning the A discus and Josh Conners produced the only other win in this age group in the B 800m, while Ryan O'Mahoney and Tom Davis were both second in the 1,500m.

For the under-17 men, Laurence Goodacre improved his season's best to win the shot and also added a discus victory and javelin runners- up spot. Jack Edgar-Hill comfortably won the hurdles, equalled his PB to win the B high jump and improved his 100m best for B string second.
