Morpeth Harriers had three outright winners at the Northumberland Minor Schools Track and Field Championships, held at a sunny and breezy Gateshead International Stadium on Saturday 27th June 2015.
They all featured in the Girls events, however there were also some good minor placings achieved into the bargain.
