TAVISTOCK under-15 athlete Charlotte Doney smashed her discus personal best to move into the UK’s top 15 at her club’s latest summer series meeting.

Club colleague Owen Fileman, who is also in the UK’s top 15, won the under-15 boys’ discus event on Wednesday with 31.44m, while Isabelle Doney took victory in the under-13 girls’ discus event with 21.57m.

Tavistock’s U15 runner Noah Reid won the 800m, while City of Plymouth under-11 athletes Finley Eales and Jazz Jackman pushed each other along in the 600m.
