While some Morpeth Harriers were engaging themselves with the slimy mud, grit and earth,
of major Cross-Country events, others sought the warmer sanctuary of high-profile Indoor events,
taking place in Sheffield and Glasgow.
On Sunday 23rd February in Sheffield, Amy Lott ran the fastest opening heat qualifying time of 8.80s
in the Under 17 Women’s 60m Hurdles, which shaved a fraction off her personal best of 8.81s,
which she had recorded when winning the Scottish title recently.
This took her into a later run Semi Final, in which she placed third in a blanket finish, recording a time of 8.86s.
In the hotly contested final, she recorded an identical time, which unfortunately was only good for fifth place,
with a great deal of hungry opposition just getting in ahead of her.
Amy’s younger sister Hannah competed in the Under 15 Girls 60m Hurdles,
unfortunately going out in the heats after hitting the first hurdle in her effort.
She finished seventh in her heat, posting a time of 10.25s.
