Under 15 75m Hurdler Amy Lott of Morpeth Harriers competed in the Scottish Athletics Under 13/Under15/Under 20 Age Group Championships at Aberdeen Sports Village on Sunday 19th August 2018.
After winning her heat in 11.62s, which was the second fastest overall time, she finished second to
Central’s Coirilidh Cook in a tough final, clocking 11.61s to Cook’s winning time of 11.45s.
It was Lott’s second Scottish Championship medal, having won a Gold in the 60m Hurdles
at the Indoor Championships in Glasgow in March this year.
On this occasion she would also have wished for Gold, however she will test herself again
next weekend in the English Championships at Bedford.
Another Morpeth Harrier gained a Silver Medal in the Championships in Aberdeen,
and that was Jessica Gardiner, who threw a best of 29.95m in the Under 15 Girls Discus.
After fouling in the first round of six, she eventually produced her best,
which was also fractionally a new lifetime best,
which was only 90cm adrift of the Gold Medal.
Gardiner also competed in the Hammer, finishing fourth, throwing a best of 35.50m.
She is also hoping to join Lott at Bedford.
Gardiner’s younger brother Edward had also been an excellent double Silver medallist
on the Saturday in the Under 13 Boys Javelin and Discus competitions.
In the Javelin, he produced an on the day best of 29.82m in his fourth of six throws.
This also presented him with not only his medal, but also a new lifetime best,
improving on his previous figures by around five metres.
In the Discus, he won his Silver medal with an on the day best of 23.91m with his final throw.
This was also a new lifetime best, improving on his previous figures by over five metres.
