Representatives from 5 Northumberland School Sport Areas gathered at Ashington Leisure Centre to compete in the School Games Indoor Athletics Final in January.

Organised by Northumberland Athletics Network, the event was part of the Fun in Athletics programme which provides an exciting introduction to Athletics competition for young people.  A number of qualification heats took place before the final which involved 380 young participants.

A range of partners were involved including Northumberland School Games Organising Committee, England Athletics, Sportshall Associates, BVAL, local Athletics clubs and volunteers.

Winning schools were Chantry Middle School (U11 mixed, U12 boys & girls), Cramlington Learning Village (U13 boys) and Ovingham Middle School (U13 girls).  Winners of U12 and U13 events will now compete in the North East Regional School Games Final in February.
