The second fixture of the popular South Yorkshire indoor series saw six of our athletes competing. There were seven personal best in total and two new records.
Lilly May Hughes (Hallamshire Harriers) went in the Under 15 Girls 200 metres. It was her first 200 metres since the Steel City Cup in September. We knew Lilly was in great shape after a great few months training and this showed here with a big personal best and new record. A few more races should see Lilly get close to that English Schools qualifying time of 26.20 seconds. Lilly now holds the 60 metres, 100 metres, 200 metres, Long Jump and in the summer will be hoping to become the record holder of the 300 metres and 400 metres also.
George Connelly (City of Sheffield & Dearne) went in the Under 13 Boys 150 metres and 600 metres. George was the outright winner of the 150 metres setting a personal best and beating his own Team Russell record. George then went onto finish 2nd in the 600 metres (yes the 600 metres) setting a new personal best going 7th on the impressive all time Team Russell rankings.
Personal Best :
Molly Gray (City of Sheffield & Dearne) went in the Under 13 Girls 150 metres. An excellent time and going very close to sub 21 seconds which is very impressive. Molly’s time was a new personal best and just shy of a very impressive Team Russell record set all the way back in 2010.
Jorja Turner (City of Sheffield & Dearne) had a busy day competing in three events. 600 metres, Long Jump and Javelin. A big personal best by over 8 seconds in the 600 metre and came close to her best in the Long Jump where she finished 3rd overall.
George Wallace (City of Sheffield & Dearne) also had a busy day setting personal best over both 400 metres and 600 metres suggesting a big personal best over 800 metres is due very soon.
Ben Morton (Hallamshire Harriers) set a big indoor personal best in the Under 15 Boys 200 metres although was disappointed not to break his outright personal best but with a few more races should see Ben challenge that.
Well done everyone keep working hard.
