The top women's sprinter from Stevenage and North Herts AC won silver at the Scottish Indoor Championships at Glasgow's Kelvin Hall.

Emma Kemp (left), now studying at Loughborough University, was runner-up in the 400m.

She clocked 55.81 in the final, only a few hundredths slower than her outdoor personal best.

Other club members won more medals at the Southern Indoor Championships at Brunel University on Sunday.

Nick Stoppard started the ball rolling with third place in the under-15 boys' 60m hurdles race (9.72). He also ran the 60m in 8.01 and long jumped 4.95m.

Bunmi Awokoya followed on in her first competition in her new under-17 age group, also coming third with 9.21m in the shot put.

Shelley McLellan in the senior women's shot put was involved in her first indoor competition for three years and won bronze.

Her throw of 12.43m was only just short of her personal best of five years ago.

It was Shelley's first senior medal in her first senior championship, having suffered a serious shoulder injury in 2001.

Second claim member, Wendy Meadows-Smith, went one better in the under-20 women's high jump with a clearance of 1.65m, winning the silver medal in her event.

The club's youngest competitor, Anne Rees in the under-15 girls' high jump, performed creditably. She cleared 1.50m to finish seventh in a competitive event.
