Teenage athletes in North Herts passed their exams with flying colours.
This was at the inaugural North Herts schools' senior athletics finals at Ridlins Stadium in Stevenage.

To overcome this, the North Herts Schools' Athletics Association decided to organise a specific, age appropriate championship event for this age group before the exams.
