GALLERY: Curtis and Milburn warm-up for international by impressing at Brickfields

HENRY CURTIS warmed up for his England U20 debut by setting two new PBs at the final Southern Athletics League meeting of the season at Brickfields on Saturday.

Curtis was part of a joint City of Plymouth, Tavistock and Erme Valley team that impressed on home soil.

He will compete for England at the Welsh U20 International in the 110m hurdles, but at Brickfields he ran the 100m and 200m flat.

He won the senior men’s B 100m in a PB time of 11.15 seconds and clocked 22.20 seconds as a non-scoring athlete in the 200m.

Tavistock’s England U18 hammer thrower Phoebe Milburn will also head to Welsh International in confident mood after impressing in the senior competition at Brickfields. The under-17 athlete set a PB throwing the heavier senior weight to win with 44.50m. She also won the B shot.

Jacob Lamboll won the A 200m in 22.21 seconds and also the 400m in 49.87 seconds. Rory Jarvis took victory in both the B races in those events to give the home team maximum points.

Kinga Kudzia also impressed in the sprints winning both the women’s A 100m and 200m. She won the 100m in a wind-assisted PB time of 12.32 seconds before setting a legal PB of 25.32 in the 200m.

Under-17 athlete Tara Green triumphed in the B 200m (27.63) and came second in the B 100m in a PB time of 13.43.

Brook Adnitt was second in the men’s A 100m in 11.60 seconds, which was the same time as the winner.

Toby Clayden took the 110m hurdles win in 15.59 seconds, while Matt Sumner easily triumphed in the 400m hurdles in 58.39 seconds.

Plymouth’s Verity Tank took victory in the senior women’s 1,500m steeplechase in 5:41.68, while Tavistock’s Jasmine Gray set a new PB of 4:51.46 to finish second in the women’s A 1,500m flat.

Hayley Smith took full points in the women’s A 400m in 61.17, while Dan Newman took second in an incredible tight men’s A 800m where the first three athletes all finished within 0.25 of a second of each other.

With Milburn winning the women’s A hammer, Plymouth’s Zoe Crutchley made sure of maximum points for the host team in that event by coming top of the B competition with 30.61m, while Chloe Edwards triumphed in the women’s A shot with 10.04m.

Veteran Pete Bruce impressed on his debut, winning the men’s javelin (42.69m), discus (32.55m) and shot (10.72m).

Noah Jones also won the pole vault, while the host team also enjoyed success in the men’s 4x100m relay.
