Echoes of the past: Lightcliffe students speed away from the competition

editorial image

Didn’t they do well - June 21 1995 Hipperholme and Lightcliffe High School students who took part in the West Yorkshire athletic championships and came away as worthy winners.

Left to right: Jonathan Stewart 15 years 1500 meters; Barry Halpin 16 years 100 meters and Andrew Irving 13 years in the 200 meters.

All three are now into their 30s - I wonder if any of them are still involved in athletics?
