Four Alnwick Junior athletes competed this weekend at the North East Track and Field Championships at Middlesbrough Sports Village. The athletes are all in the first year of their age groups so were aiming for good performances rather than medals.
Ollie TELFER raced first in the U17 men’s 800m finishing 5th in a personal best time of 2min 15s, a new club record. Lauren BROWN competed next in the 1500m running an excellent race finishing strongly in 6th place. This improved on her own club record with an excellent time of 5min 0s. Later in the day Lauren also ran a personal best time of 46.95s in the 300m
Finlay TELFER had a slow start in the hammer with two no throws, however, he held his composure and managed a super personal best of 16m 93cm in round six to win the bronze medal. A fantastic achievement.
Talia THOMPSON continued her excellent season by throwing 8.35m in the shot put just short of her own club record. Talia finished in 4th place. The Junior Harriers had an excellent day competing at the highest level, they are sure to continue to improve through the season.
