Hannah Lott of Morpeth Harriers, younger sister of Amy, repeated that of her older sibling, a week previous,
on Saturday 2nd February 2019, by getting to the final of the Under 13 Girls 60m Hurdles Championship,
at the Scottish National Indoors, held at Glasgow’s Emirates Arena.
Lott finished second in her heat in 10.31s, a new personal best, her previous being 10.51s.
In her final, where she qualified as fourth fastest overall, she just missed out on a Bronze medal by a whisker, posting a superb new improved personal best of 10.09s, which now ranks her as fifth in the UK.
On Day 2 on Sunday 3rd February, two of Morpeth’s Under 15 Girls were in action.
Alice Geoghegan managed to get through to the final of the 60m Hurdles,
after winning her opening heat in 9.87s, which was the fourth fastest of the first round.
She went on to finish second in her Semi Final in an improved 9.67s,
which was the fourth fastest time of that round.
In the later run final, Alice clocked an identical time, which gave her fifth placing.
Mia Belton competed in the 60m sprints, where she had total opposition from 54 others.
She managed to finish second in her opening heat of seven, posting a time of 8.39s,
which was just fractionally adrift of her lifetime best, and she qualified for the Semi’s
as tenth fastest overall, which was a superb achievement.
Qualification for the later run final was tough, and she finished third in her Semi in 8.42s,
which was tenth equal fastest of the thirty one fighting for a final place,
which meant that she just missed out on a final qualification.
Morpeth Harriers Coach Dave Thomas can feel justifiably proud of his three charges at the end of the day.
