Preston City Athletics 2019
Over 50 pupils took part in the Preston City Athletics Championships held at UCLan Sports Arena on Tuesday 25th July. Each one of the ten schools in Preston enters four teams: U13 Girls and U13 Boys; U15 Girls and U15 Boys. Each athlete selected is only permitted to compete in one event (track or field) plus a relay, if selected. All the scores are collated throughout the day with 1st place in any event earning 10 points for their school; 10th place earning 1 point.
