Relay impressive!

Two Bridgnorth youngsters took part in the Midland 3 Stage Road Relays towards the end of September in Sutton Coldfield. Zoe Gilbody, aged 11, was part of the winning U13 girls’ team, competing for Wolverhampton and Bilston Athletic Club with team mates Isabelle Jones and Scarlett Williams to take title of Midland champions. Isabelle ran a very strong first leg to hand over to Scarlett, who then handed over to Zoe in first place. Zoe further increased the lead for the team to finish over a minute clear of their nearest rivals, also picking up the fastest U13 girls’ medal in a time of 14.39 for the 3.88km course.

Zoe’s older sister Charlotte also ran a strong first leg of the U15 girls race to help her team achieve 17th spot overall. Both girls attend Bridgnorth Endowed School.
