UNDER 11 girls from Halton & Frodsham Harriers enjoyed a 600m clean sweep at Cheshire Track and Field League’s round two at Stanney Oaks, Ellesmere Port.
Making the most of rare sunshine, the club’s resourceful youngsters won all four races in their age group courtesy of Jess Wright (1min 56.5 seconds), Annabel Kitchen (2:06.4), Megan McElverly (2:06.5) and Jenny Pyatt (2:12.9).
In the 75m sprints, Jess (A, 11.6) and Megan (B, 12.1) took second places.
There were also runners-up spots in the long jump for Jess (A, 3.89m) and Annabel (B, 3.20m) at javelin for Jenny (A, 13.20m) and in the 4x100m relay (63.5).
The U13s girls posted points in all events they contested.
Amy Pearson (fifth, A, 31.1) and Martha Cotttell (second, B, 30.8) began with grade-four performances over 200m.
Tori Acton’s second-place C-string time of 31.9 was not far off the same mark.
Emma Scott ran a well-earned grade-three 800m with a steadily-paced 2:46.4, yielding fourth A points.
Emma Pyatt also picked up a grade-four award for her 1.20m high jump (third, A).
Katy Morgan, Kate Merrill and Lauren Clare also chipped in.
Amy Wright, Harriers’ lone U15 girl at the meeting, took fifth and fourth places at 200m and long jump (A, 3.93m).
U11 boys events saw Ben Sutcliffe finish second in the A long jump with 3.50m.
U13 boys Thomas Jones, Matthew Hulse, Ryan Morgan and George Peacock held their own against tough competition.
Ryan, although a first-time 100m runner, enjoyed B victory in a grade-four 14.2 while A 1,500m winner Matthew’s grade-three 5:02.6 was adjudged the best-middle distance performance of the match.
Third places were the best the U17 men’s squad, comprising Colin Hornby, Mike Fryer, David Tomalin, Ryan Jackson and Mark Coman, could achieve.
Hornby’s 100m time of 11.9 was a grade-three display.
Coman’s day was cut short by injury in the long jump but had already registered 4.97m – ultimately enough for fourth in the A-class
James Crosby won the only points in the U15s section with a fifth-placed, 14.1 time in the 100m.
