JAKE Ber­ney’s un­beaten out­door sea­son con­tin­ued as he recorded three wins for Peter­bor­ough Ath­letic Club (PAC) in the East­ern Young Ath­letes League at Ip­swich.

Ber­ney equalled his per­sonal best in the 100m, was just a tenth of a sec­ond out­side his 200m best and moved into the UK top 10 with his 2.90m pole vault.

In the same age group Daniel Hauck added two me­tres to his javelin per­sonal best but missed the 50m mark by just one cen­time­tre. He also moved into the UK top five with his ex­cel­lent 49.99m while Michael Hol­land won the high jump with a per­sonal best of 1.63m and went be­yond five me­tres for the first time when third in the long jump.

PAC have such tal­ent in the sprints that Gren­fell, who’s been in the top 15 in the coun­try for 100m in each of the last two years, was only a non-scorer in that event as Alex McNally won the A-string. He also won the high jump with a per­sonal best of 1.70m.

Ed Fitch recorded a pole vault and javelin dou­ble while English Schools hur­dles medal­list Max Ever­est pre­dictably soared to an­other win.

Jamie Horne was among the high­lights in the Un­der 13 boys age group, win­ning the high jump, while Gren­fell’s younger brother Nathaniel set a per­sonal best for sec­ond in the shot and also won the B-string dis­cus.

Megan Ed­wards recorded a sprint dou­ble in the Un­der 15 girls age group, set­ting a per­sonal best in the 200m and just missing her two yearold best in the 100m, while Ella De Lu­cis set new fig­ures when sec­ond

Jake Ber­ney’s 2010 out­door sea­son in the 75m hur­dles.

In the Un­der 13 girls age group, Ebony Ogle and Char­lotte Batty set new bests to win the 100m and 200m re­spec­tively, Ogle also tak­ing the Bstring 200m.
