North-East Athletics meeting at Leeds
On Tuesday 21st June, 11 children travelled to Leeds to compete in the annual North-East Athletics Championships. On a warm, sunny day, many personal bests were beaten and the Mowden squad recorded two second places but also three first places.
Nicholas Sykes in the U12 800m with a time of 2 minutes 31 and Harrison Cutler in the U13 1500m (5 minutes 09) both came second but achieved the minimum national standard , thus qualifying.
Nicholas in the Long Jump (4m21), Cecilia Wishart in the U13 shot putt (8m30) and Daisy Riddell in her U13 High Jump (1m32) won their events and therefore qualified as of right.
Congratulations and good luck to the five athletes who will travel to Birmingham on Monday July 4th to represent the North-East region at the National Athletics Championships.
