Evans-Shields, Maczugowski and Milburn all win medals for England at SIAB International

NUBIA Evans-Shields, Nicolas Maczugowski and Phoebe Milburn all won medals representing England Schools at the SIAB International in Grangemouth, Scotland, on Saturday.

Plymouth College and City of Plymouth athlete Evans-Shields comfortably retained the discus title she won last year with a throw of 42.66m, which was more than six-and-a-half metres further than any of her rivals.

Evans-Shields has dominated her age group in the discus since under-13 level. She currently tops the UK under-17 rankings by six metres and has won three consecutive English Schools’ Championship titles.

Her City of Plymouth AC team-mate Maczugowski (Tavistock College) marked his England Schools’ debut with a PB and a gold and a silver medal.

He won an individual silver medal in the 400m hurdles, clocking a new best of 54.42 seconds to finish just behind England team-mate Cheyne West and just ahead of Wales’ Osian Parry.

Maczugowski then teamed up wtih Stan Chevous, Tom Waterworth and Mickey Ayling to help England claim gold in the boys’ 4x400m relay in a quick time if 3:19.32.

His Tavistock College team-mate Phoebe Milburn (Tavistock AC) also made the podium in Scotland on her England debut.

She took bronze in a high-quality girls’ hammer event. She threw 53.00m – the second best competitive throw of her career – to finish just behind England team-mate Alice Howie and Ireland’s Caoimhe Gallen.  The trio were well clear of the rest of the field.

The SIAB International sees the best under-17 athletes from England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland compete against each other.
