Several of Pendle AC’s athletes were amongst the 18 competing today for Pendle Schools at it was that girl Leah Hillman who came back with a Lancashire title. She threw the English schools qualifying distance in the Javelin of 30m+.
The only other competitors to find a top 3 finish for Pendle were Nat and Neng – Nat finishing second by jumping 4.37 just 6cms behind the winner, having to run into a strong headwind and Neng who was pipped at the finish line but given the same time as the winner.
Other notable Pendle performances came from the two Matthew’s , Barnes and Dutton. Other Pendle AC athletes competing for Burnley, Ribble Valley and Blackburn were Helena Leathley (1500 Steeplechase 2nd), Amy Moran (300m 3rd), Thomas Marchant, Tiernan Crorken and Jordan Leeming who ran a fantastic 200m to finish 4th (if it’s any consolation his sister and myself thought he was 2nd).
