Quadkids Competition
Greater Manchester Athletics Networks

On Sunday 25th September 2011, Horwich RMI Harriers & AC entered 2 teams, Horwich Lions (Under 11’s) and Horwich Tigers (Under 9’s) in the first ever GM Athletics Network Quadkids Competition.

Held at Winton, Eccles, Manchester, the event attracted 16 teams from the Greater Manchester area containing 160 young athletes. There were 10 members in each team, 5 girls and 5 boys. Each athlete had to complete a short sprint, a middle distance race, standing long jump and then throwing the “Howler”.

The Horwich Lions (U11’s) were led magnificently by their Team Leader, Zac Howe. The Lions finished as Runners-up in their age category, which was fantastic.

Not to be undone were the Horwich Tigers (U9’s), with their Team Leader, Tiffany Dacre helping them to finish in an excellent 3rd place overall. The Tigers also finished in 1st place in the Shuttle Relay in a very exciting race!

Individual honours went to Jack Shingler, who came in 3rd place overall for the Under 9 Boys and Ella Harper who came 3rd overall in the Under 11 Girls age category. Congratulations to both these young athletes and to all who took part. All the Coaches and parents were very proud of the athletes.
