The junior girls (pictured below) finished with an impressive 345 points, following strong performances in the javelin, long jump and hurdles.

Meanwhile the intermediate girls (above) finished in first place with 322 points, again with strong performances in javelin and hurdles, but also in the 100 metres and the high jump.

The spokesman added: “Both teams did exceptionally well on the day. Special mention goes to performances from Laura Van Lier and Rosie Fresen for the intermediate girls team and Olivia Thompson and Macy Carr for the junior girls team.”
