North East Pentathlon Championships 19th September 2015
Report by Charles Burke
Eleven club members and their parents (not mine !!), enjoyed the glorious sunshine while competing in the annual outdoor pentathlon event at Jarrow on Saturday 19th September, a date which has been fixed in the training groups calendar for what seems like months. The group have trained 3 or 4 times a week trying to master the highly technical disciplines involved in the pentathlon - hurdles, long jump, high jump, shot putt and 800m.
An excellent turnout from the club at what is a physically and mentally draining challenge. Everyone ended up with at least one pb (I have checked Power of 10, and apologies if I have made any mistakes).
U13 boys - Lucas Pentland 1pb in the shot putt, and niftily dodged a fellow competitor who fell in the hurdles. Points 775 7th out of 9.
U13 girls- Charlotte Bennett 2 pbs in the shot putt and the 800m in 2-31 which gives her the U13 girls’ club record which she has been chasing all year, brilliant Charlotte. Total points 1791 12th out of 29.
Ruby Whitney 4 pbs !!! long jump, high jump (winner of the smiliest high jumper), shot and 800m. Points 1635 15th.
Libby Currie 3 pbs !!! and 1 equalled hurdles, =long jump, high jump, 800m. Points 1318 21st.
Lucy Nicklin 3 pbs !!! high jump, shot and 800m. Points 1175 23rd.
Millie Pentland 2 pbs!!! hurdles and long jump (an upsetting KJT hiccup in the high jump due to over zealous officiating !!) 747 points 28th.
Libby, Lucy and Millie are still in the U13 group next year, well done girls.
U15 boys- Matthew Brining 4 pbs !! hurdles (an event he was dreading), long jump, shot putt and 800m. Points 1063 6th.
U15 girls- Elicia Smith 3 pbs, high jump, shot, 800m. Points 2382 (a club record by nearly 1000 points) 5th out of 21 and first season in the U15 group. An excellent performance.
Jordan Thrower 4 pbs !!! hurdles, high jump, shot, 800m. 1776 points (also bettering the club record) 18th. (first season)
Casey Thwaites 5 pbs !!! well done Casey. hurdles, long jump, high jump, shot, 800m. 1375 points. 20th. (first season)

Report by Charlie Burke
Congratulations to Amy Carter who added the Northern U15 75m hurdles to he NE title won way back in May.
Amy recorded the same time as the second placed athlete, 11.63 a new pb (11.99 heat) but as can be seen from the photo-finish she won by millimetres after a really strong last four hurdles. Excellent race Amy.
Congratulations to our other young athletes, especially Daniel Gunn third place in the U15 3000m in 10-29.68. Harry Allan, seventh and pb in the U17 1500m in 4-13.64. Reece Curtis, eighth in the U 17 800m in 2-09.45. Libby Currie, 14.68 in her 100m heat, 29.74 and 30.18 and fifth in her heat and final in the U15 200m, and twelfth with 3.79 in her long jump. Elicia Smith, ninth in her first competitive 800m for nearly a year with 2-32.68, missing the final by 0.5 second.

Competing against Durham City, South Shields/Birtley, Wallsend/Blyth, Houghton and Middlesbrough & Cleveland, New Marske fielded a strong team.
