Tasmania’s top school-aged athletes converged on the North-West Coast on Tuesday to compete for honours in their age groups.

Students from Launceston Grammar, Launceston Christian School, St Patrick's, Scotch Oakburn, St Brendan-Shaw and Marist College went up against each other in a number of athletics disciplines throughout the day with events running from 9.45am through to 5pm.
