NEHL Cramlington – Ladies Captains Report

The first Harrier League fixture of the season was run under blue skies in unseasonal warmth. The weather brought out the crowds and there was a great atmosphere. The course was the driest I’ve known it and, in consequence, very fast. There was a great turnout from the Heaton ladies, with 16 runners competing. It was good to have Ellen Roberts and Laura Jardine back after their ‘maternity leaves’ – both ran really well from the mediums. Judith Archibold and Nadia Stock made a welcome return to XC after injury. Katie Maxwell and Caroline Lievesley both ran strongly in their first Harrier League race for Heaton and hope that they will come back for more. Thanks to all the ‘regulars’ who turn out event after event and do so much for the club: Alex Harrison, Caroline Billis, Fiona Toland-Mitchell and her socks, Helena Walsater-Lowes, Jenny Friend and Kelly Dodds.

As always, there was great running all round. Our speedy counters were: Nadia (this was only her 2nd XC race), Katie Maxwell (first XC for Heaton) and Nicola Roper, who made up a massive amount of places, running from medium pack. With the new 10% promotion threshold, Nadia goes up to medium pack (well done, but bad luck!). Katie narrowly fell below the promotion cut-off, so will be important for us next time round (no pressure there then!)

Thanks as always to everyone who supported, provided baked treats and organised the tent.

Don’t forget to keep your numbers and I hope to see lots of you at the next race. Perhaps there might be some mud to enjoy by then.

Junior Update

Under 11 NOTAN Quadkids Grand Prix Series Final Standings

The final NOTAN Quadkids event took place over the summer holidays and our Under 11’s did themselves and the club proud in another action packed meeting at Churchill Playing Field.
In the year 6 girls Ellie Phillipson continued her excellent recent form posting another 3 PB’s, the pick of which was her long jump of 3 metres 82cm. Her performances were good enough for second place on the day but better still for a gold medal for first place in the overall grand prix series for the most points scored over the five events. Heaton Harriers also secured the silver medal in the year 6 girl’s grand prix through Ellen Matheson who finished with two PB’s including a howler throw of over 24 metres. Eleanor Rowe completed the trio of year 6 girls and in only her second event was another who posted three PB’s on the day with big improvements in both the howler and the long jump.

There was more success in the Year 5 girls’ category as Megan Darwood and Kate Lievesley took the overall gold and silver medals.

Megan also posted PB’s throwing 23metres in the howler and running 2:17 in the 600metres to finish in second place on the day, adding to her three previous first places and one second place finish to complete an excellent series. This secured Megan another award for finishing overall girls top points scorer from all of the age categories.

Kate was another who continued to improve posting PB’s in the Long jump and the 600metres. In the 600metres it was her 5th consecutive PB as she lowered her time by 21 seconds over the course of the series, a fantastic achievement. She finished the day in third place in her age category only one point behind Megan with her highest ever points total.

Jamie Reed-Embleton followed up his two previous third places with an excellent 5th place finish out of 17 boys and some solid performances throughout finishing fourth in the sprint, howler throw and 400metres. In the most competitive age category Jamie just missed out on a medal finishing in fourth place.

Our other overall grand prix medal winners were James and Jessie Davison who both picked up bronze medals for third place in the Final Year 3 standings despite being unable to compete in the final meeting. James still finished the series with three first place finishes and one second place from four events. His standout performance was undoubtedly in event four when he ran an amazing 71 seconds for the 400 metres – not bad for an 8 year old! Jessie also performed consistently well finishing in second place in three out of the four events she competed in. Jessie was another who consistently improved over the season increasing her overall points total in each of the four events.
