Wednesday 21st March 2018: Two LWAC athletes recently competed at the England Age Group Indoor Championships at EIS Sheffield. Lucy Frow returning from injury and illness didn’t let this major championship slip by. Lucy gained the qualification standard in January on her first competition back and in her new age group of U17 women Lucy finished a creditable 6th in 8.37 just outside her PB. An amazing performance under such circumstances.
Georgina Adam also competing at the same championships in the u20 women age group 200m won her heat and semi in convincing style and wining the final in 24.11 bringing her most successful and medalled indoor campaign to date, to a close. Outstanding Georgina!
