NORTHUMBERLAND SCHOOLS CHAMPIONSHIPS
Temple Park, South Shields, Tyne & Wear
Bright Sunshine, mild weather and firm underfoot conditions greeted competitors.
However there was early controversy as two of the Counties top athletes were disqualified for taking the wrong (and somewhat shorter) course in the Senior Boys race. Junior International Rory Leonard and North Eastern U17 champion, Sam Charlton were 100m clear of the field at the time. Victory went to Patrick Donald who narrowly defeated Daniel Melling.
Holly Peck easily won the Intermediate Girls race, her fifth successive victory having won at Minor Girls, Junior Girls (twice) and now twice in this race. North Eastern Counties U15 champion, Ines Curran finished second. Gracie Hufton took the Senior Girls title.
Tom Balsdon comfortably won the Intermediate Boys race from Rowan Bennett. Last year's Northern U13 champion, Josh Blevins won the Junior Boys event from current North Eastern U13 champion, Tom Slane.
Millie Breese maintained her excellent form to win the Junior Girls race from Abigail Leiper. Theo Dragoi and Hannah Wightman won the two Minor (Year 7) races.
Newcastle area won the Gill Mooney Cup for the best overall team performance.
