South Yorkshire Indoor Series

Congratulations to Preston Harriers’ James Ince, who won the South Yorkshire Indoor Series. The Grand Prix is held over 4 fixtures (Nov, Dec, Jan, Mar) at the England Institute of Sport in Sheffield. Each time an athlete completes an event, that performance gains Grand Prix points which are based on the England School Athletics standards. The results system produces points for the best events in each of the 4 categories, Sprints (60m, 200m), Middle Distance (600m, 800m) Jumps (Long Jump, High Jump) and Throws (Shot Put). Awards are made to the 3 athletes in each age category who score the most points over the fixtures. James scored a massive 266 points, with PBs in High Jump (1.50m), 200m (26.49 sec), 800m (2.23.86 min), Long Jump (4.80m), Shot Put (7.45m). 2nd Place was 51 points behind with a score of 215. James was presented with a trophy at the last fixture on Sunday 25th March, beating 49 other competitors.
