NORTHERN U15 & U13 INDOOR CHAMPIONSHIPS
Fechin Mc Cormick
Congratulations to the club’s talented multi-eventer U15 Ellie Jackson who was the club’s sole Northern Champion and medallist at these important Championships. She took the 60m hurdles title in great style equalling her 9.52 PB in heat one, improved it to 9.44 in the semi-final and again in the final to 9.4i. This is her first Northern title. Once again, she held off fierce rival Lauren Beales from Gateshead in the final, both girls having featured at the very top of the under 13 ranks.
There were several superb PB performances in very strong competition which must also be heartily congratulated –U15’s Caleb Adenuga (60m and 60m hurdles), Laurelie Obi (60m and 200m), Ruka Shonibare (200m and long jump), Tess Mc Hugh (800m) and Lois Mc Tiffin (Shot Putt). Among the U13’s Ayla Hewitt had a PB in the 200m and Anne Kershaw a PB in the long jump. On the same weekend, Meg also had a great day at the Sale indoor meeting with two further PB's in high jump (1.65) and 60m hurdles (9.14) to win her race in the new age U17group.
