Alnwick Junior Harriers
Lauren Brown (nine) was Alnwick’s sole representative at the last Minors (U12) athletic meeting at Gateshead Stadium on Sunday.
Even though she’d missed one of the five competitions, Lauren had scored highly enough on previous occasions to earn herself a fifth-place trophy in the overall grand prix series. A very impressive achievement.
On Sunday, Lauren ran 400m in 1m 18s to win the bronze medal, finished fourth in the howler throw (19.45m) and delivered good performances in the 75m sprint and long jump.
Lauren has improved steadily throughout the summer season and has practised hard.
She’s made great progress in the more technical events and proved how training pays off.
The broad range of events Lauren has competed in will stand her in good stead for the forthcoming cross-country season, which she is looking forward to with enthusiasm.
