Hyndburn Athletic Club javelin thrower Marnie Shirtcliffe has added yet another title to her growing list of successes.
The javelin star has become the Lancashire Schools Junior Girls Champion at the recent track and field championships in Blackpool.
Her throw of 25.65m was down on her best of the season so far of 27.34m but this was probably due to the blustery conditions on the day.
However it was still good enough for her to take the title, adding to her Lancashire County Championship gold medal win last season in the Under 13 girls javelin and her gold medal win this season in the Lancashire County Championship Under 15 girls javelin.
Coach Phil Sumner said: "Marnie is still only 13 years old and is at the lower end of the age group, which means she can be throwing against girls almost two years older than herself,
"Marnie is a great prospect for the future and hopefully will get her call up for the English Schools in a few weeks time."
Last season Marnie finished eighth in the UK ranking list as an Under 13 girl throwing a 400gm javelin and has now moved up to the Under 15s girls age group which means she now throws the heavier 600gm javelin and is currently ranked 14th in the UK.
The only other athlete from Hyndburn Athletic Club to be invited to the Lancashire Schools Championships was Hannah Williams who ran in the junior girls 1500m, making it to the final and finishing a respectable seventh with a time of 5:34.9
