A little earlier in the day Amy Carter won the U17 girls 80m hurdles to add to her tally of NE titles. Later in the day Rebecca Tilley added to the gold medal total in the U15 bgirls 3000m, followed by another gold from Libby Currie jumping into a cold, gusting headwind to secure a win. Libby also finished 4th in the U13 girls 200m, 4th in the high jump and 6th in the 100m. Day two on Sunday saw Jordan Thrower secured NMHs fifth gold of the championships winning the U15 girls hammer.

Emily Brown finished 9th in the U13 girls 1500m and Dan Gunn was 6th in his U15 3000m. Many congratulations and a big thank you to them all for representing their club in the NE Championships in a weekend of quality competition. Any photos from the weekend please forward to Dave Aspin to include alongside the report. 

I am sure that all members who know her, will be wishing our potential NE medal winning prospect (after her performances during the indoor season ), Elicia Smith a full recovery and a return to training and competition. Best wishes, and get well soon Elicia.
