Megan Harris-Wood and Nell Tolley went to English Institute of Sport in Sheffield on Saturday 3rd December to take part in a Northern Athletics open meeting.
They both started the day competing in the long jump, Megan in pool A, jumping  very well to record a distance of 4.53m which placed her 5th and Nell in pool B finishing 11th with a great jump of 3.22m.
Nell then put in a confident performance in her 60m race in which she came 1st in her heat.
To finish the day they both ran in the 150m race, Nell came 3rd in her heat, she showed good determination in all her events, this being her first indoor athletics competition.
Megan won her 150m heat in very strong style, knocking 3 seconds off her PB!
Well done to both girls who showed how much they are enjoying taking part in the indoor athletic competitions.

Next Sunday, 11th December, is the fourth of the Derbyshire Sportshall competitions, held in Chesterfield. HPAC are currently in 2nd overall and are hoping to increase their strong position.
