April has already gained a silver in the North of England indoor championships and it was the same two girls, Leigh Lennon from Ribble Valley and April who battled it out again for the National title. Leigh once again went off fast and held the lead but April closed up on Leigh but just ran out of time to catch her, losing by just one second. With April having only just moved up into this age group it’s a successful start to 2009 for the 16 year old.
April’s next target will be an International Match to be held in Malta in 8 weeks time where both April and her club mate, Jamie Crompton (2000m Steeplechase) have been selected to represent the North of England team against teams from Malta, Egypt, Tunisa and Wales.
