South Lopham’s Katie Pursehouse continued her golden form in athletics by claiming three more county titles at the weekend.

On Saturday at the UEA sportspark, the 17-year-old represented Diss High School in the senior section (years 12 and 13) and won gold in both the long jump (4.84m) and triple jump (10.28m) to become Norfolk Schools champion.

Pursehouse will now go forward to represent Norfolk in both jumps tomorrow in Peterborough at the Regional School’s championship.

Returning to the UEA on Sunday, the young ace was also crowned Norfolk county Under-20 triple jump champion with a best jump of 10.46m.
