UNDER-17s and under-20s from Woking AC produced “high-quality performances” in the second round of the UK Youth Development League’s Upper Age Group Southern Division One A.

Woking joined forces with Camberley for the match at the Withdean Stadium, Brighton.

And Craig Holder, Woking coach, said: “Our athletes produced some high-quality performances, with a number of first places and personal bests in sunny but blustery conditions.”

Nerys Tullett powered to victory in the under-17 women’s 300m thanks to a fine surge down the home straight. She posted a time of 47.3 secs.

Tullett then finished third in the 300m, clocking the second-best time of her career – 44.0 secs.

Holder said: “Both were very impressive times in the blustery weather.”

Martin Sunderland recorded an impressive victory in the under-20 men’s 3,000m.

“He led from the gun in what was the hottest temperature of the day before relinquishing the lead with 300m  to go,” said Holder. “But he regained the lead 150m later to storm to victory.

“He clocked just outside 9 mins 3 secs – his second-best time ever.”

Dylan Lewis dropped down from his specialist distance, the 400m, to achieve two personal bests at under-17 men’s level.

Holder said: “In the 100m, he missed out in the tighest of finishes to take second place, posting 11.9 secs – just 0.1 secs behind the winner.

“And in the 200m, Dylan went one better to dominate the field, including the winner of the 100mn and athletes from the under-20 age group, to win by 0.3 secs. His time of 23.5 secs beat his previous best time by 0.9 secs.”

Jake Etherington finished second in the under-20 men’s 100m – and he was 0.1 secs outside his best in the 200m, where he posted 23.0 secs to claim third place.

There was a personal best for Emelia Wazydrag in the under-17 women’s hammer. Holder said: “She added an incredible 1.5m to her previous best, and threw more than 30m for the first time, when she achieved 30.48m. This was good enough for a fine second place. She had already set a personal best earlier in the competition.”

The under-17 men’s high jump saw Daniel Gilbert involved in what Holder described as an exciting competition.

Holder said: “Daniel cleared 1.65m, just 5cm below his best which he was very close to getting a couple of times. He finished in third place.”

Gilbert, Lewis and Etherington teamed up with Rhys Chadwick, from Camberley, in the under-20 men’s 4 x 100m, where they were involved in a very tight three-way finish.

Holder said: “They ended up in second place, which was a fine performance because three of the four athletes involved for Woking and Camberley are under 17.”
