IT has certainly been a busy week for several Warrington Athletics Club members.

Saturday saw several youngsters take part in the Mason Trophy Schools Inter-County meeting in Stoke with some stand-out results.

Imogen Wharton won her 1,500m race in the junior girls’ age group clocking 4mins 51.75secs while Jake Sands threw a personal-best 27.59m to take third place in the junior boys’ hammer throw.

In the same age group, Jack Marwood and Jacob Pryor finished seventh and 12th respectively over 1,500m while Caleb Adelani was fifth in his 300m race. Ellie Barker was seventh over the same distance for the girls.

The intermediate age group saw Ellie-Ann Tuitt-Williams finish fourth in the girls’ 100m race while Ben Pucill and Lucie Davies both raced over 1,500m.

Davies was fifth in the girls race while in the boys’ equivalent, Pucill came home 10th.

Elsewhere at this weekend’s Northern Athletics Championships for under 20s and senior athletes, two Warrington members set new personal bests.

On Saturday, Lisa Halliday lowered her best 100m hurdles time to 15.96secs to finish fifth while the following day, she also competed in the 400m hurdles and finished fourth.

Jordan Jones was 13th in windy conditions in the senior men’s 5,000m race but still managed to set a new best time of 15mins 12.03secs.

Orla Gregory was the club’s other representative at the meet and she came eighth in her 1,500m race in a time of 4mins 52.26secs.

In midweek, there were eight Warrington members in action at Trafford Athletics Club’s distance Grand Prix.

Under 15s runner Jack Marwood improved the 1,500m personal best he set three days earlier, finishing second in 4mins 26.95secs. Imogen Wharton ran in the same race, finishing 10th in 4mins 47.33secs

In the second under 15s race, Esme Heavey set a new best time of 4mins 49.07secs to finish third.

Over the same distance, Ben Pucill took time off his personal best, finishing fourth in his race and improving to 4mins 21.46secs.

The 800m series saw Ellen Turnbull clock a new best time of 2mins 31.02secs to place seventh while there was also a new personal best of 9mins 38.51secs for Katie Lowery over 3,000m.

Masters athletes Steve Watmough and Claire Andrew also competed over 3,000m and both finished 18th in their races.

Watmough was also one of three Warrington members who took part in the Joe Moran Memorial masters meeting.

He came second in his 3,000m race in 10mins 10.9secs while in the second race, Phil Hicken and Tony McCarthy made it a Warrington “one-two.”

Hicken came first, with his time of 11mins 51.9secs his best as an over 55 runner while McCarthy was close behind in 12mins 16.3secs – a season’s best time.

Both runners also took part in the Mystery Park 5km race in Liverpool, with Hicken finishing third in the over 55s age group and 60th overall by completing the course in 20mins 8secs.

McCarthy came home 84th overall but his time of 21mins 14secs was the second fastest by an over 60s runner.
