Northern Athletics U 17Track and Field Championships 2015
Report by Charlie Burke
Congratulations to Amy Carter who added the Northern U15 75m hurdles to he NE title won way back in May.
Amy recorded the same time as the second placed athlete, 11.63 a new pb (11.99 heat) but as can be seen from the photo-finish she won by millimetres after a really strong last four hurdles. Excellent race Amy.
Congratulations to our other young athletes, especially Daniel Gunn third place in the U15 3000m in 10-29.68. Harry Allan, seventh and pb in the U17 1500m in 4-13.64. Reece Curtis, eighth in the U 17 800m in 2-09.45. Libby Currie, 14.68 in her 100m heat, 29.74 and 30.18 and fifth in her heat and final in the U15 200m, and twelfth with 3.79 in her long jump. Elicia Smith, ninth in her first competitive 800m for nearly a year with 2-32.68, missing the final by 0.5 second.
