A great depth of throwing talent was on show at the recent County Athletics Championships, as two exceptional athletes from Hyde Community College posted impressive results in their respective events.
Congratulations to both Harry Ditchfield and Declan Feakes who swept all before them when they competed against an impressive field.
Harry came FIRST in the Javelin, throwing a huge 54.23m. This is an incredible distance and he will now compete in the English Schools Athletics Competition, an event that is shown annually live on BBC TV.
Then, in the same competition, up stepped Declan who with an outstanding throw of 48.50m was sufficient to secure second place to Harry; which was quite an incredible achievement, unfortunately though, just short of the English Schools standard.
