SW Schools Combined Event 2017On Sunday 25th June, Susannah (UIV) competed in the Pentathlon for the Wiltshire Junior Girls' Team in Yeovil in the South West Schools Combined Event Championships, 2017. The best athletes from around the South West take part in this competition coming from - Dorset, Cornwall, Gloucestershire, Devon, Avon, Somerset and the Channel Islands.

Susannah had qualified from the County Pentathlon to compete for Wiltshire. The combined event is quite a new experience for many of the athletes, who, although having their individual specialist events at which they excel, obviously have to compete in five events over the day, a real challenge – 75m Hurdles, Shot, High Jump, Long Jump and 800m. Susannah competed well across all the events, with improved performances in hurdles, shot and high jump. However, as can be seen in the results, she achieved an outstanding points' score in the final event of the day the 800m; which is her main event. It was an excellent competition, with Susannah finishing 17th out of 26th competitors. The Wiltshire team finished 4th
