St Albans Athletics Club have shown there is plenty of depth through their middle-distance athletes after a fine showing at the county championships.

Hot on the heels on the sensational run by Phoebe Gill over 800m, the Westminster Lodge-based squad turned in some superb results across many age groups.

The 1500m champs was held in Stevenage where Joshua Hirst started off the St Albans flourish by racing to a PB of four minutes 18.74 seconds, good enough for a fourth place finish in the U17 category.

There was also a 4th place finish for Thomas Bailey in the U20 race while Conor Treloar battled to third in the U13s.

More PBs followed for Phoebe Daniels, Ella Pinder, Isla Scrivener and Amelia Drane, with the latter also landing an impressive second place in the U13 race.

The main championships were held in Watford with the 800m and 5,000m races.

Oscar Nagalingam won the senior men's 800m in 1:55.82, which was a PB until he lowered it further to 1:53.90 at Parliament Hill in Hampstead. 

The first time had been the eighth quickest time run by an U17 over 800m this year but his new mark is now the seventh.

Hirst, Edward Goodwin and Jonah McNaught all competed in the 800m and their training was rewarded with PBs.

On the girls' side, Scrivener, Sadie Smith and Emma Sofronov also came away with PBs.

Two athletes who have been coming to St Albans track for at least 10 years raced over 5,000m. Both George Withers and Freya Weddell with awarded with 1st place and new PBs.
