No fewer than seven OSH pupils competed for the Dudley Schools’ team in the West Midlands’ Athletics Championships at the world famous Alexander Stadium, Birmingham.
The most successful was Charles Hilliard who won the 100m and the 200m, as well as the heats to get into the final. Second places followed for James Kelly (Javelin) and Jolby Beech (Discus) while third places were gained by Aidan Bill (800m) and Ladi Abudu (100m). Ladi also reached the 200m final and the Long Jump, while Harry Price (1500m) and Sean Riley (Shot Putt) were well placed. A number of the boys have a good chance of selection for the West Midlands Team in the inter-county Mason Trophy.
