GRENEWAY'S Year Five and Six Sportshall Athletics have won the Hertfordshire Primary Schools' Sportshall Athletics trophy.

The young team travelled to Wodson Park, Ware for the indoor event and came up against tough opposition in Harpenden's Crabtree School and St. Albans' Wheatfields School.

The athletes contested events that included standing triple jump, standing long jump, vertical jump, indoor javelin, speed bounce, as well as several running events with turning boards.

In an exciting and high quality event, Greneway won the team gold competition which once again highlights Greneway's quality as athletes with their sixth championship in four years.

They finished with 498 points ahead of Crabtree in second with 478 followed by Wheatfields with 412.
