Four athletes from Morpeth Harriers, currently under the very watchful eye of Club Coach Dave Thomas, competed in the opening Northern Athletics Indoor fixture, held at Sheffield Arena on Saturday December 1st 2018.
In her first outing over 60m Hurdles as an Under 17, Amy Lott can feel very pleased with herself,
as she won her heat in a time of 9.18s, which pushes her straight up to equal 37th in the UK for her new age group, and she was also fourth fastest overall over the two heats.
Lott also competed in the 60m sprint, finishing sixth in her heat, posting a time of 8.60s,
making her 17th in her age group in the competition.
Including Lott, all four Morpeth Harriers performed excellently, each achieving good placings
in the UK rankings as a direct result of their achievements.
Lott’s younger sister Hannah, also rose to the occasion well, by winning the
Under 13 Girls 60m Hurdles in a new personal best time of 10.51s,
a time which sees her ranked currently as 28th in the UK.
Hannah also was sixth fastest in her age group in the 60m sprint,
where she posted a time of 9.29s.
She is currently ranked 182nd in the UK.
Currently ranked 107th in the UK, Mia Belton finished as 8th fastest in the
Under 15 Girls 60m sprint in a time of 8.48s.
In the same age group, club colleague Alice Geoghegan, finished as twelfth fastest,
posting a time of 8.65s.
She is currently ranked as 212th in the UK.
Geoghegan rounded off a superb day’s work, when finishing as 3rd fastest in the 60m Hurdles,
achieving a new personal best time of 9.61s, which sees her rise to 37th in the UK rankings.
For Thomas, it was pleasing to see all four of his charges performing well,
and each achieving times that sit well in the National rankings,
and he has high hopes for each of them as the season progresses.
He was particularly pleased for the younger Lott, who entered the Power of 10 rankings
for the very first time, a remarkable achievement for one so young, and only beginning
the first rung in terms of the competition arena.
