EUAN Mackenzie continued his amazing form to anchor St Albans School to their eighth win at the King Henry VIII relays in Coventry.

The six-strong squad of Euan, Robbie Miles, Richard Priseman, Chris Graham, Dominic Easter and Billy Collins set the sixth-fastest time ever for the event, finishing nine seconds clear of The Judd School in second and more than a minute ahead of third-placed Manchester Grammar School.

Robbie Miles ran the first leg (12.37), before Richard Priseman, (12.23) led the team up to fourth.

Dominic Easter ran the joint second-fastest split of the day (11.20) on leg three. Chris Graham (12.47) and Billy Collins (12.05), bravely battling injury, ensured Euan, aged 15, took over the final leg in the lead. He ran 11.50, the fifth-fastest leg of the day, and Harrison said: "It was a great day for us. It is the National relay and the one to win. Euan was running almost three years young and it was a wonderful run.
