First published in Sport

CARYS McAulay bagged a silver medal in the National Indoor Championships.

It came in style, McAulay crossing the line with a personal best time in the under 17s girls’ 800m at the English Institute of Sport in Sheffield.

In a closely-contested race, her 2mins 16.16secs behind Crawley’s winner Sophie Mansfield moved her to third in her age group’s UK rankings and second in the Scottish rankings.

Matt Wigelsworth was on course for a massive personal best until the 1,000m mark of the under 20s men’s 1,500m, but was unable to sustain the frantic pace and eventually finished 10th in 4mins 14.01secs.

Fisayo Williamson-Taylor smashed his personal best time in the heat of the under 15s boys’ 60m, winning in 7.41secs.

In the semi final he was third in 7.45secs to qualify for the final, where 7.42secs handed him sixth place.

The following day Williamson-Taylor shone again despite not progressing in the 200m.

He found himself in the same heat as title favourite Jona Efoloko, of Sale, and finished second with a time of 23.72secs that still managed to better his Northern Championships personal best.

In the under 17s girls’ 1,500m, Lizzie Smith lay third over a fast-paced opening 1,000m before finishing dropping back to fifth in 5mins 6.81secs.CARYS McAulay bagged a silver medal in the National Indoor Championships.
