Inter-schools Match 1961

An extract from the 1962 College Magazine under 'Athletics - Summer Term 1961':

....  from the general College point of view, the Athletic highlight of the term was our first match on the Park.  It was held on a gloriously hot summer's afternoon, and was conducted on the basis of Relays for the Track events, and on the aggregate distance, or height, jumped and thrown for the Field events. The result was a convincing win for us over King Edward VII School, King's Lynn: the depth of our athletic talent at the junior level being particularly surprising. Eventually, it is hoped that we shall be able to build up one or two similar fixtures, and thus further develop the team aspect of Athletics here at the College.

All but one of the following photos were taken by Dennis Herrell.  It could be that some of them show a practice day prior to the event itself.  Were you there?
