Athletic’s Club Eliza is Kent’s new U17 Womens 3,000m Champion

Sevenoaks Athletic Club member Eliza Nicholson became the Kent U17 Womens 3,000m champion with a fine race at Dartford on the evening of Wednesday 29th June.

Head Coach Darrell Smith said: “I’m hopeful both athletes will have a successful Championships as they are both in good form.”
