WODONGA has taken out this year’s annual Border Cup Challenge at Wodonga’s Pearce Street Complex.

With about 300 youngsters taking part, the hosts emerged victorious on a day where no records were broken.

Wodonga, Albury and Lavington-Jindera competed with youngsters aged between six and 15.

“It was a good, friendly competition,” Wodonga Little Athletics Centre president Sean Streat said.

“The atmosphere was great.

“It went really well with about 300 athletes involved.

“We had a ceremony for Remembrance Day as well which was fantastic.”

The Border Cup Challenge has been running for 35 years.

Meanwhile, Charlotte Streat, Dakira Cooper and Logan Sandiland will compete in the Pacific Schools Games in Adelaide from December 1 to 6.

They took part in an induction and training session in Melbourne on Sunday.
