The second fixture of the Sale Harriers Winter Open Indoor Series at Sportscity had a number of Blackburn Harriers competing with a welcome return to competition after struggling with injury for Jamie Vickery, a stalwart over recent years of our Northern Senior Men’s Team.
Jamie kicked off his Indoor Season with a win in a Heat of the 60m in 7.25, just one tenth of a second outside his PB. He then went on to set a new PB of 37.47 in the 300m finishing 2nd in the Race – so a really good first outing for Jamie.
Brothers Cameron and Nicholas Massey were also in action at this second fixture and produced some really good results. Finishing 5th in his 60m Race, U17 Cameron knocked three tenths of a second off his previous best time to set a new PB of 7.84. U15 Nicholas then went and won his 60m Race in the same time of 7.84 which was his first ever outing over the distance. New member U17 Ashley Smith placed 3rd in his Heat of the 60m in a time of 7.94 and again it was his first outing over the distance. Cameron went on to win the U17 Shot putt with a throw of 9.88m and Nicholas won the U15 Shot Putt with a new PB of 9.21m.
U15 and U17 Boys ran together in the 60m Hurdles which saw Nicholas Massey winning in a time of 9.14 with brother Cameron in 3rd spot (10.05) and Ashley Smith in 5th (10.10).
Bottom of age U15 Charlotte Williams also tackled the 60m Hurdles placing 5th in a time of 10.45, competed in the Long Jump reaching 2.94m which was way below her best and then bounced straight back with a new PB in the 3k Shot Putt, taking 2nd place with 8.85m. Bottom of age U20 Ben Aspinall contested the Long Jump finishing 8th in the 23 strong field with a lap of 6.07m.
The previous week, Paul Bradshaw who is targeting the Ribble Valley 10k and Lancashire Cross Country Championships took on the 3000m Indoors at the Cardiff Grand Prix Athletic Series.
