Seamer & Irton and Cayton were the high-flyers in this year’s Key Stage One Sportshall Athletics Competition.

Seamer won the larger schools event, beating Filey into second place, while in the smaller schools, Cayton saw off the challenge of runners-up Lindhead.

Organiser Steve Staveley said: “This is such a fun event for all the young athletes. They all get to experience the thrills and spills of a ‘real’ competition within a positive atmosphere.

“A few days ago, the Sports Minister said that all children should experience competitive sport; and it was so good to yet again see almost all the Scarborough schools entering this event.

“Funding changes for PE next year may put this event in doubt but hopefully, an agreement can be made with headteachers to keep this event running as it has such a massive impact on a large number of Year One and Two children.”
