On a rained soaked day at Witton Park, Under 11 Boys and Girls turned out to compete against one another in the annual three Team Competition between Blackburn Harriers; Hyndburn AC and the reigning holders of the Competition Trophy, Kirkham Grammar School.
Events included Hurdles; 75m; 150m; 500m; Long Jump; Triple Jump; Shot; Javelin; Shuttle Relays and 4 x 100 Relays – and the children gave it everything, shouting and cheering on their team mates and ignoring what were dreadful conditions.
There some really good contests, but overall, Kirkham Grammar School came out on top again this year with a combined total of 197 points, with Hyndburn in 2nd place on 164 points and just narrowly behind in 3rd place were Blackburn with 164 points.
