Staffordshire County Championships- 11th May 2008

Tipton gained several gold medals at the annual Staffordshire Championships.
In the Senior men's 1500m John Millington was a convincing winner running 3 mins 55 sec.  In the Under 20 Mens 1500m race, 18 year old Dan Cotterill won the event in 3 mins 57 sec.  Dan still has a year left in the age group and his run was the first time he broke 4 mins for 1500m.  His time puts in 12th in the UK rankings for 2008 and gains him entry into the National Under 20 Track and Field Champs on the 22nd June.

Current National Indoor Champion Tom Hinton also picked up gold in the 400m in a winning time of 50.7 sec.

Tipton's Jump Squad was on excellent form with Kerry Passmore winning the Women's Pole Vault in a height of 3.00m and Martin Cherrington and Mitchell Simms both winning gold medals in the U20 and Senior events jumping 1.85m and 1.90m respectfully.
