Harriers trio star in Regional Sports Hall Finals

Rebecca Jones, Tom Kramer and Naomi Richardson all put in great performances for Greater Manchester in the North West Regional Sports hall finals at Robin Park Arena, Wigan, last Sunday.

Rebecca took gold for GM in the standing long jump and put in sound performances in both the 2 lap race and the speed bounce

Tom helped GM’s U13 boys to a gold in the obstacle relay, finished 5th overall in the standing triple jump and ran well for the GM team in the 4x1 relay.

Naomi helped the U13 girls to 3rd in the obstacle relay and 4th in the 4x1 relay, and was an excellent overall 4th in the speed bounce.

Well done to all three for a great day’s performances against some top competition from across the region.
