Hanna Defends North Of England Title


Hanna Hewitson was in great form at the North of England Championships at the weekend where she defended her North of England title at the South Leeds Stadium.  Hanna was delighted with a seasons best of 11.74 metres (Under 17 Ladies Triple Jump) where she beat the current English Schools Champion on her own home track with some very gutsy jumping indeed.

Hanna also jumped to the top of the British Rankings with the longest jump so far this year to win the title which is a huge psychological boost for Hanna who has won four North of England titles in the last two years.  Hanna has won the indoor and outdoor championships over the last two seasons, where she is the championship record holder for both indoor and outdoor championships.

Jumps Coach Neil Templeman was absolutely buzzing after the competition because Hanna was jumping against a very good quality athlete on her home track, who has competed for England in the discipline of triple jump.  However, Hanna and jumps coach Templeman know there is much, much hard work to come and will not rest on their laurels in the run up to the English Schools and British Championships.
