GRENEWAY'S talented year five and six athletics team travelled on a very hot evening to St Albans for their first taste of the under-11 County Athletics Championships.

Against the best competitors from 19 schools in the county the Greneway team hoped to do well.

This expectation was surpassed brilliantly as the Royston school won a record 10 golds, one Silver and two bronzes making every final and smashing many school and championship records along the way.

Terry Graves, the school's assistant headteacher and head of PE, said: "It was the most successful evening of county athletics in the school's illustrious sporting history.

Individually, a 'hat-trick' of golds for Sophie Shannon and Christy Stubbs was particularly praiseworthy, the latter also setting new Championship records in all three performances.
