02/12/2018  Indoor Meet, Lee Valley
Three young Huntingdonshire AC athletes contested the latest indoor meet at Lee Valley in London and all three came away with new club records. Lizzy Harrison finished 3rd in her 60m race in 8.12 secs which not only beat the Under 15 Girls club record, held by Daniella McGrory with 8.31 secs set in 2006, but also Jasmine Hope's Under 17 Women's club record of 8.15 secs from 2016. The next target will be the club Under 20 and Senior Women's record of 8.05 secs. Lizzy is still 13 years old. Jacob Preston, who turned 13 last month, had the rare distinction of establishing eight club records in two races. With no Hunts AC records for the 300m and 600m for any age group from Under 15 on upwards, Jacob took full advantage of the opportunity to pile up the records by placing 3rd in the 300m with 45.29 secs and 2nd in the 600m with 1:43.14. Moria Howard brought her own Under 13 Girls 60m hurdles indoor club record down from 10.55 secs to 10.48 secs when winning her race. A total of 11 club records. A great day at the races.   Further Info
