EHS Student Tyler Panton runs 100m in 10.8 seconds!

Tyler Panton ran in an open competition at the Walton Athletics track in early April. He was grouped in a race with runners with similar personal best times, resulting in him running against adults aged up to 25.  His win was a huge achievement, but his time was even more unexpected, running in 10.8 seconds, which ranks him No 1 in the UK for U17's  in the 100m.  It also is the fastest time by a Walton Althetics Club athlete in 68yrs and equals the club record set in 1950.

Tyler also took part and won the 200m on the same day, also running against a field with older competitors. Another great achievement!

Congratulations to Tyler for these great successes. Good luck for the rest of the outdoor season.
