Nene Valley Harriers made an excellent start to their East Anglia League campaign as they won their opening match by a mammoth 300 points, writes BARRY WARNE.
The Harriers boasted four age group winners, with the under-13 girls, under-15 girls, under-15 boys and senior ladies seeing off all opponents.
The senior men, under-17 men and under-17 girls were all runners-up on a day when the strength of the Nene Valley track and field squad was plain to see.
Under-15 duo Freddie Fraser and Will Kong were double winners, with Fraser achieving the national standard in the 100m hurdles.
Olivia Mead also shone as she won the under-17 400m in her first outing over the distance with an impressive 62.9secs clocking. Molly Peel won the under-17 1,500m on her club debut, too.
Meanwhile, Katie Marsh and Katie Calcutt won three events apiece, with Eleanor Smith claiming two victories.
