Will from Year 11 stormed to victory in the English Under-17 1500 metres on Saturday in Bedford. Hiss winning time was 4:03.04, including a 60 second last lap which saw him overtake his rivals in the home straight to claim victory. Having finished third in the North East Championships in May, Will improved his time by over 10 seconds to claim this victory - a fantastic achievement! This victory follows on from Will's success in winning the Northern title two weeks ago, and setting a personal best time of 3:56.96 when he won the British Milers Grand Prix at Chester-le-Street in July. From everyone at Kepier, well done on your success Will !!!
