Junior Alnwick Harriers

The Junior Alnwick Harriers team was boosted by the Plumley brothers at the North of Tyne Athletics Network meeting at Whitley Bay on Sunday, June 23.

George represented the Harriers in the Year 5 age group (U10) and younger brother Jack at Year 4.

Both boys conducted themselves superbly, competed well and entered into the spirit of this multi-disciplined competition.

The Alnwick athletes once again demonstrated their skill in the Howler throwing. Max Breese won the Year 6 event with a big throw of 36.5m and Ollie Telfer was runner-up with 35.6m.

In the Year 4 category Gregor Batley threw 30.4m to win the boys’ event and Finlay Telfer threw 22.56m.

In Year 5, Ailsa Batley managed a throw of 24.52m to finish in second place and George Plumley 22.6m to finish just outside the top three.

On the track, all the athletes ran well. Millie Breese managed second place in the 600m (Y4) in a time of 2mins 16secs and Ollie Telfer was runner-up in his 800m race in a time of 2mins 55secs.

The Year Fours had a very competitive long-jump event with Millie jumping the furthest distance of 2.81m to win her category. George Plumley and Ailsa Batley represented the year fives, Ollie (3.45m) and Max (3.16m) finished second and third in the Year 6 competition.

The athletes had a super day, participated well and enjoyed themselves.
