Gateshead Harriers held the first meeting of their 2018/19 Indoor Athletics
programme at Gateshead College on the evening of Thursday 15th November 2018.
Seven athletes from Morpeth Harriers were in competitive action,
three of them taking part in the 60m Hurdles.
Alice Geoghegan and Hannah Lott, younger sister of North East Champion Amy,
were respective winners in the Under 15 and Under 13 Girls events.
Geoghegan set a new lifetime best of 9.75s, and Lott was experiencing indoors for the first time.
Morpeth’s other 60m Hurdler was Lucy Charlton, who was also an indoor first timer,
finishing fifth in the Under 17 Women’s competition, producing figures of 11.55s.
Hannah Lott also competed in the 60m sprint, finishing fifth in her age group,
posting a time of 9.07s, and she also triumphed in the High Jump,
her clearance of 1.25m beating four other rivals in her age group.
Meanwhile Amy Lott, made a steady start to her indoor season,
her first in the Under 17 Women’s age group.
On her coach’s advice she missed out on her specialist Hurdles event,
and competed in the sprint only, finishing ninth fastest in 8.49s,
which was equal to her best 2017 performance at the same venue, exactly a year ago.
Other Morpeth Under 17 Women sprinters in action were Rosie Winter,
who was seventeenth fastest with 8.78s, and Lucy Charlton (26th) 9.33s.
Mia Belton was the best of the Morpeth 60m sprinters on view,
finishing third in the Under 15 Girls section, posting a time of 8.34s,
which for her, was a brand-new personal best.
Also posting new figures was Alice Geoghegan, who finished as seventh fastest Under 15 Girl with 8.55s,
and Ellie Longstaff of Morpeth was eighth fastest Under 15 Girl with 8.58s.
