The Powys Championships were held at the track at Penlan, Brecon May 24th. Schools from the whole of Powys attended and competition was incredibly stiff.
Christ College sent a small team to compete due to the timings to exams. All of the boys and girls competed strongly and it was an excellent day for the college.
