MOORHEAD High School ended Hollins Technology College's 14-year domination as their boys were the overall winners at the Hyndburn and Ribble Valley Inter-School Athletics Championships.
The Moorhead team won the prestigious "Granville Slack Trophy" after winning the boys track events out of the 10 schools competing and finishing runners-up to Hollins in the field events at Wilsons.
Hollins did get their revenge in being crowned overall athletics champions thanks to the performances of their boys and girls with St Augustine's second and Moorhead third overall.
Four of Moorhead's students returned home with individual championship medals. These were Year Eight's Steven Astbury and Danny Hart; Rhys Watts from Year Nine and Sophie Mottershead from Year 10.
The school also had district champions at 14 separate events and the Year Nine boys smashed the district record in the 4x100m replay with a time of 50.05 seconds - that's an average of 12.51 seconds each leg with changeovers.
Head of PE Andy Kelly said: "Since 2002, when Moorhead School finished 10th out of the 10 schools, the athletic results have improved year on year. Overall the school finished third this year, the same position as the previous year, but with an improvement of nine points.
"Our pupils did the school extremely proud at the championships.
"It is easy to recognise the achievements of the individuals and certain teams but it is every pupil which pulls on a Moorhead PE kit on the day who contributes to the all-round team performance. Everyone gave 110 per cent."
