There were some excellent performances by athletes from the ranks of
Morpeth Harriers at the annual Northumberland Minor School’s
Track and Field Championships held at Wentworth Stadium,
Hexham, on Saturday 25th June 2016.
Respective wins by Lily Heaton and Holly Peck in the Year 8 Girls 800m and 1500m in 2m29.2s and 5m00.6s,
certainly reflected the excellent form that they are both in at present.
Amy Lott’s win in the Year 7 Girls Hurdles in 12.0s also reflects a fine performance.
Despite a superb effort Rhiannon Hedley just lost out for victory in the Year 7 Girls 1500m, where she clocked 5m06.2s.
Morpeth Harriers produced three winners and two second places in the Year 7 Boys events.
Bobby Stone won the 800m in 2m27.1s, Alfie Ward won the Long Jump with a best of 4.33m,
and Daniel Dowd won the Javelin with a best of 28.65m.
Second places were achieved by Charlie Lane in the 300m with a clocking of 45.70s,
and Ben Waterfield finished second in the High Jump with his clearance of 1.38m.
