Five Team Blyth juniors will travel to the world-class Alexander Stadium in Birmingham this weekend for the national Age Group Championships. The qualification standards for this competition are extremely tough, so its testament to the progress of the club that we have more athletes taking part than any other North East club.
Abigail Huntly will be making her first appearance at this level, having achieved the qualification standard for the 75m hurdles last month. This will be a fantastic learning opportunity for her. Hollie-Anne Sudder has already competed over 200m at the English Schools Championship this year, and this is another opportunity for her to shine over the half-lap sprint.
Luke Pichler already has several national titles to his name, and will go up against competition of the highest standard in the 100m hurdles and long jump, as he looks to continue recent progress. Lauren Creaby goes into the 800m looking to finish her championship season on a high after a fantastic summer where she has excelled. Sadie Parker took silver at the corresponding indoor championships earlier on this year, and will require a performance of equal quality to get amongst the medals in a loaded Long Jump field.
