Primary School League
Medal Meeting
17 July 2009

55 Trophies were won by the young Horwich RMI Harrier Superstars at the final meeting held at Robin Park Athletics Stadium, Wigan for the 2009 season for Year 3 to 6 Primary School ages. Horwich turned out a fantastic record of 34 athletes on the night.

This event was the last in a series of meetings designed for Primary School children to try out and compete in a selection of different athletic disciplines under a League competition with Chorley and Wigan Harriers. The League was won by Wigan for the 3rd Year in a row, however, Horwich and Chorley are getting closer. Over the 3 League meetings Horwich RMI Harriers had 49 different athletes competing, which is also another record.

In the Medal Meeting, Horwich RMI Harriers won 14 Gold, 21 Silver and 20 Bronze Trophies. In addition 3 new club records were set by Nathan Townsend in the 600m, Holly Clark in the Soft Javelin and Isobel Dean in the Cricket Ball throw. There was a host of new personal bests!

Some other highlights included 1st places for the Girls from Phoebe Howe, Sophie Williams, Alex Woods, Ella Price, Holly Clark and Isobel Dean. For the Boys, 1st places came from Nathan Townsend, Jonah Saunders, Liam Wright, Callum Gordon and Matthew Stocks.

Trophies and Medals were presented by Don Moss from Wigan and a big thanks to Wigan Harriers for hosting such a super night. Also, thanks for the grateful support of the Parents and Volunteers on the night.
