Mason Trophy 18/06/2022

A record 11 BRATs were selected to compete for their Schools’ County at the Mason Trophy in Stoke on 18th June – 10 for the West Midlands and 1 for Warwickshire.  They competed across all disciplines – sprints, distance, hurdles, jumps and throws which shows the diversity of the talent within the club.

After the scorching temperatures of the previous week, the day was a tad on the cool and wet side, but this did not dampen the spirits of the youngsters who gave it their all.

Bonheur Tshibola, Tywana Kuluziza and Nathaniel Walker had already hit the entry standard for the English Schools in their respective events which is a fantastic achievement.

There were 2 BRAT podiums on the day – Jamie Callaghan was 2nd in the hammer with a PB of 44.69m and Bonheur Tshibola was 3rd in the 300m Hurdles with a PB of 46.36.

Other results were:-

Lily Smith Long Jump 5.12m 4th
Jacob Gosnall 400m 53.94s 6th
Morgan Hill 3000m 9.40.32 7th
Diaz McKenzie 80m Hurdles 13.19s 7th
Evie Rendell High Jump 1.35m 10th
Isabelle Carruthers 80m Hurdles 14.30s 11th
Faith Nana Benneh Ntow 100m 13.27s 11th
Nathaniel Walker 100m 11.58s 13th

Unfortunately Tywana was unable to make it on the day.

Following this meeting, we’re proud to confirm that there are 4 BRAT U17 athletes who have been selected to represent the West Midlands at the English Schools in Manchester on 8th July:-
