Orogun sisters impress again on track
DARTFORD Harriers contributed eight athletes to the Kent team competing at the inter-counties schools championships at Kingston on Saturday.
Many were hoping to be selected for the English schools championships at Gateshead next month and competitors who had finished first or second in their county championships were invited to take part, with two athletes per event.
Times and distances were affected by the strong winds but there were some impressive results by the Harriers contingent nevertheless.
