Five athletes from Morpeth Harriers were in competitive action at the third Indoor Standards Meeting,
held at Gateshead College on the evening of Thursday 18th January 2018.
Under 17 Man Sam Yates, showed that he currently has a fine level of form,
when he achieved the second fastest time for his age group in his first round 60m sprint,
clocking a new personal best of 7.96s.
In his second-round run, Yates achieved even better by finishing a very close second, improving to 7.90s.
As expected Amy Lott of Morpeth, proved more than a match for her opposition in the 60m Hurdles,
making a modest improvement to her personal best with her clocking of 9.53s.
Her opposition included club colleague Alice Geoghegan, who also set new figures of 10.90s,
as she finished as third fastest in the age group.
Both Lott and Geoghegan also competed in the flat 60m,
where the former was fourth fastest with 8.65s,
and the latter was ninth equal fastest with 8.85s.
Morpeth’s Under 13 Girl athlete Olivia Gent also competed in both
the 60m Hurdle and flat 60m events, finishing fifth in the former in 13.20s,
and fifteenth in the latter with 9.81s.
Ethan Stephenson was a double winner on the night, clearing 1.70m in the High Jump,
and produced 11.98m in the Triple Jump.
Hopefully these athletes will all be available for action
in next month’s regional championships.
