Northumberland School Games
The Northumberland indoor schools Level 3 competition was held at Cambois Rowing Club at Ashington on the River Wansbeck, where more than 170 students from 15 schools took part in individual events for Years 7 to 13 over various timed distances.
The event also included team events, which were raced over 1000m for Years 7 and 8 and 2000m for Years 9 and above – each team consisting of two boys and two girls. The event was run with help from volunteers from Cambois RC, which helped set up the rowing machines and run the day.
All participants were also placed on an overall table using the ‘gold medal target’ time. Two athletes managed to exceed the 100% medal target – the highest being Milly Dickinson, a Year 10 student who managed to pull 106.2%.
