ATHLETE Emily Parrott continues to hit the right notes on the track.

The Dyke House College student is looking to make big progress this year and has started in the right fashion.

Emily competed at Sheffield at the Northern Athletics Indoor Championships.

In the Under-15s 60m she reached the semi-final by finishing second in her heat with a time of 8.73.

A slightly slower time of 8.74 seconds was recorded in the semis so she missed out on a final spot but was still happy with the result.

Emily also competed in the Under-15s Long Jump and posted a best jump of 4.13m - not a PB but she again was happy with the outcome.  She hopes to improve in the future in both events.

Emily’s next event will be at Gateshead on Thursday at the College Indoor Series Match 4 when she will be racing in the Under-15s 60m.
