WOKING’S young athletes produced outstanding performances across a very busy weekend of competition.

The under-13s and under-15s competed in their second Youth Development League match of the season, at Kingston, last Saturday.

And the under-11s to under-17s were in action at Basingstoke last Sunday in their second Wessex League match.

The star of the whole weekend was under-15 boy Sahil Vassanjee, who was unbeaten in all six events he competed in. He set two personal bests in the long jump and improved his best from 5.30m to 5.32m at Kingston. And then he bettered it to 5.46m the next day.

Vassanjee also won both 100m races, running 12.2sec at Kingston and then 11.9 at Basingstoke. And he won the 200m at both matches, setting a lifetime best with 24.4 at Basingstoke.

Under-15 boy Adam Cohen starred at Basingstoke on his debut for Woking.

Cohen leapt to a brilliant distance of 5.85m in the non-scoring long jump, which put him straight into the top 15 in the country. He followed this up with an equally impressive run in the non-scoring 100m, winning his race in 11.9sec.

The performance of the weekend came in the under-13 girls’ long jump at Basingstoke.

County champion Mia Mosko smashed her best by leaping to a highly-impressive 4.85m, just 2cm short of the club record that was set in 1964 and is one of the oldest records on Woking’s books. 

The jump moved Mosko up to second in the UK rankings for under-13 girls.

She also set a best in the 100m with a grade-one time of 13.50sec.  

Fellow county champion Jack Dormer starred in the under-15 boys’ 800m at Kingston, shaving 0.5sec off his best to win in 2min 2.5sec and move into the top 15 in the country.

A club record was set at Kingston in the final event of the day, with the under-15 girls’ 4x300m team – Scarlett Brown, Imogen Freeman, Lola Roake and Sophie Price – leading from start to finish to win by nearly five seconds. 

They posted  3min 2.6sec, knocking 3.4sec off the record and moving them to 13th in the UK rankings.

Under-15 girls Evie Wiltshire and Sarah Louise Fordjour set personal bests at Basingstoke to win their respective 100m races in 13.3sec and 13.4sec respectively. 

And at Kingston, Eleanor Buckle set a best of 13.1sec but just missed out on the win. 

Wiltshire and Fordjour teamed up with Chloe Moore and Violette Hornzee to comfortably win the 4x100m in 52.70sec at Basingstoke. 

Under-17 woman Nerys Tullett knocked a huge amount off her bests in finishing second in the 100m (12.7sec) and second in the 200m (26.10sec).

Earlier, Tullett was second in the 80m hurdles with a personal-best 12.90sec. 

Under-17 man Dylan Lewis was second in the 200m, equalling his best time of 23.5sec,  before winning the 400m.  

Liam Trinidad won the B 200m in a personal-best 23.4sec.

Lewis and Trinidad teamed up with Joseph Walters and Daniel Gilbert to win the 4x100m relay in 46.5sec. 

Earlier, Gilbert won the high jump, equalling his best of 1.70m.

There were comfortable successes for Price on both days in the under-15 girls’ 800m, and  a double victory in the 1,500m at Basingstoke with Roake and Freeman winning the A and B races respectively.

Meanwhile, at the Southern Senior Championships in Chelmsford,Tyler Panton continued his impressive season to storm to a win in the 200m after easing through the heats.

The previous week, he ran 10.33sec when wind assisted at a meeting in London.
