HUNTS AC sent a team of 30 athletes to compete in the Eastern Young Athletes League at Peterborough on Sunday.

After a string of winning performances from their ever-reliable stars, Hunts finished in fourth place overall with 346 points.

Dennis Penny-Toure, one of the club's most consistent winners this season, picked up his customary double victory in the U13 A string long jump and 75m hurdles. Top female performer was Lily Seach, who sprinted to victory in the U17 200m and 300m.

The club's strength in depth was demonstrated by Harry Whybrow emulating Penny-Toure with victory in the B string 75m hurdles. George Seach followed suit in the B string long jump, leaping a personal best to win.
