COOPERS COMPANY AND COBURN INTERMEDIATE GIRLS ATHLETIC TEAM - winners
This team became National Champions, beating over 600 schools, having improved on their runners-up position of a year earlier. A 13-strong squad trained hard during the summer and successfully progressed through local and regional rounds before making the grand final at Gateshead International Stadium. It was such a convincing final victory that it was achieved with a record 520 points and a winning 56 points margin was - for good measure, also an event record. Being the most successful team in the competition's history made it a formality for them to earn selection to represent England at the World School Athletics Championship in Croatia.
COOPERS COMPANY AND COBURN JUNIOR GIRLS ATHLETICS TEAM - runners up
This team also became National Champions in their age category beating over 600 schools. They emulated their previous year's victory, this time with 492 points for a new National record, achieved by a huge 62 points winning margin - again a National record. Having won for 2 consecutive years and holding both age group records, they've become the most successful junior team in this competition's history.
