It may well have been a cold evening on Monday 1st April 2019, however their was plenty of warmth amongst athletes, officials and willing helpers, despite some with health issues,
who attended the annual Sprints Trials Meeting, held at Morpeth Athletics Track at KEVI School,
and organised by Morpeth Harriers Sprints and Jumps Coach Dave Thomas,
who at the end of an extremely hardworking night, heaped much praise upon all who attended.
44 athletes took part, 24 Male, and 20 Female, which included Under 11,
Under 13, Under 15, Under 17, with one from the Under 20 age group.
In addition to Sprints of 100m, 200m, 300m, and 400m distances, Dave had also pulled in assistance to enable High Jump and Long Jump events to take place, which found favour with twenty six of those athletes in attendance, with twenty four competing in the Long Jump, and five attempting High Jump clearances.
It certainly takes much patience and dedication to put on such an event, which clearly is very much a required boost and test for our Young Athletes as they make final preparations for the forthcoming Track and Field season,
and Dave Thomas would like to singularly thank all the graded officials, club members, and parents,
who willingly gave their assistance on the night, “Much Appreciated.”
