This weekend (Saturday 22nd February 2020), saw three of Birtley AC’s younger athletes take part in the Blyth Sportshall Athletics Series. The first round of the series was held in November with the finale on Saturday with Poppy, Ellie and Izzy competing in both. The girls undertook five activities (64m sprint, endurance run, standing long jump, vertical jump and medicine ball chest push) and excelled at every one of them. Ellie and Izzy achieved all-time records at the series and all of the girls recorded high grades in the final rankings. With three athletes competing for Birtley AC the small team ranked 6th overall at final standings. It was an excellent achievement by all three girls – well done and here’s to many more!
