Harriers 09 Nov 19
Leila Thompson (U13) competed in her first winter season indoor event this weekend. Leila had a great day long jumping a personal best of 3.88m. However, her best was to come throwing a new Club record of 8.87m in the shot put. This fantastic throw won the competition and achieved the AAA (amateur athletic association) grade 1 standard for her age. Leila is now only one of four Alnwick athletes ever to have gained this. A fantastic achievement!
The Junior harriers had a great weekend in the Schools cross country events. On Friday in the area competition they won 7 of the 8 races. Over 80 children took part from the Duchess High School facing competition from 7 other North Northumberland Schools. On Saturday there was further success for the U15 girls’ team who were competing in the second round of cross country cup. The regional championship was held at Middlesbrough where the girls placed an excellent third. Their team has now qualified for the National final in Sheffield next month.
