E.A. Indoor Age Group Championships – EIS Sheffield – 28th Feb / 1st March '15

Having attained the qualifying times, two Chichester Runners & AC athletes competed at the England Athletics Indoor Age Group Championships held at the English Institute of Sport in Sheffield over the weekend.

Alyssa White (U15) drawn in an outside lane for the 60m heats, didn’t get the best of starts, but drew upon her excellent pick-up phase to finish 2nd in 8.24sec and go through as of right, to the next round.
In the semi-final and without blocks, she produced a good start and drive, to finish 4th in a great new personal best time of 8.07sec 

The U17`s 60m event unfortunately had to be re-seeded at the last minute, which resulted in Sophie-Anne Haigh being held in the call rooms for nearly an hour after warm-up and prior to racing. She did however respond well to the not ideal situation, with a technically sound performance in the high quality field to finish 4th in 7.98sec, just 0.01 off her personal best.     

They both now look forward to the 2015 Outdoor season.
