Ellie Carrow – Regional Triple Jump Champion

Fourth Form pupil Ellie Carrow took part in the South West Regional Championships at the National Indoor Athletics Centre in Cardiff.

Participating at the event for the first time in the U17 shot putt, triple jump and high jump, Ellie found herself competing against older and more experienced athletes.

Despite her inexperience at this level, Ellie won the triple jump with a new personal best of 10.43m, becoming the regional champion. She recorded the best long jump distance for the U17 (women’s) category. Ellie also finished second in the high jump with a height of 1.55m, and came fourth in the shot putt.

Commenting on her performance, King’s athletics coach Steve Shaw said: “This is a great achievement by Ellie, who is competing in her first indoor season. To come away with these results is fantastic and bodes well for the summer season, which is her main focus!”
