HANNAH Rank has been named as the Morpeth Harriers Athlete of the Month for January.
Hannah has received this award, sponsored by Benfield Motors (Morpeth), for her continued dedication to her sport over recent months, during which she encountered some disappointments owing to injury. Nevertheless, she battled her way through, with some added guidance and help by her coach Tony Ward, to have a good run at the recently-held Northumberland Schools Cross Country Championships where she finished an excellent fifth and was first from East Northumberland.
Hannah now joins Joe Robertshaw, Patrick Booth, Jonny Nisbet, Alison Brown and Molly McDonald in the melting pot for a more lucrative award later this year.
She is pictured receiving her certificate from Club Chairman Bill Woods at Morpeth Harriers’ clubhouse.
