SAM Petty of North Devon Athletic Club achieved his best result to date when he competed in the under-17 men's 800m at the Southern Counties AAAs Championships at Ashford, Kent.After winning his heat he lined up in the final against six other county champions. In an exciting race he finished second just one-metre behind the winner after closing relentlessly over the final 100 metres. Sam is hoping for even better things to come as he has been short on training due to the pressure of GCSEs.
