GRENEWAY'S Year 8 athletes represented North Herts in the Herts Youth Games at the Hertfordshire University Sports Village on Sunday.

Their selection to represent North Herts made it a unique treble, as the school were also representing the district at basketball and the mixed sportshall athletics.

This was superb achievement and testimony to the sporting talent at Greneway.

Throughout the highly competitive competition the school finished in the top four of every event, with many top three placings in the track and field events.
