On a cool and windy Monkton stadium on Saturday Birtley AC had a lone representative in the North East Pentathlon Championships. Competing over 5 events as a Senior Lady : 100 hurdles, Long Jump, High Jump, Shot Putt and 800m, Steph led the competition for most of the day despite carrying a slight injury. Coming into the 800m Steph’s injury worsened and although she put in a gutsy performance the points difference between her and the second placed athlete was eroded. Steph amassed 2013 points in her first ever pentathlon, 56 points behind the leader, to win the sliver medal. Well done Steph. Heptathlon next year!!!!!
