Northern Indoors Championships.
The Northern Athletics Indoors Championships at the weekend at the well-established EIS Centre in Sheffield was the pinnacle of the winter and precursor to the outdoors T & F Season for vast numbers of the club's T & F athletes. The club had no less than seventy athletes compete in the five men and five women age-groups with amazing success. Virtually everyone achieved a season's best or a lifetime best performances and there was the usual haul of medallists. Sale athletes won 8 Northern titles, 12 silver medals and 9 bronze medallists. Two memorable highlights of the weekend were in the U20 60m final when six of the eight lined up were Sale athletes, and in the U20 200m final, Sale athletes won all three medals.
