The junior girls had similar performances as the boys finishing in 3rd place only 22 points behind Myton who finished in 2nd place. Individual outstanding performances came from Aoife Williams in the 800m (2.37mins) and the high jump (1.29m) which saw her obtain 39 points for the team, the most by any Southam student during the day. Maria Timms had another excellent day; this time running against year 8 students and in a new event the 200m; Maria completing the 200m in 29.6sec and anchoring the girls relay into 3rd place.
