Young­sters with dreams of a fu­ture in ath­let­ics are head­ing north for the na­tional ju­nior ath­let­ics cham­pi­onships this weekend. Nearly 2000 chil­dren aged 7 to 14 will com­pete in the Col­gate Games this weekend in Whangarei and next weekend in Ti­maru. The com­pe­ti­tion was the launch­ing pad for Olympic medal­list Nick Wil­lis. Among the com­peti­tors are 28 ath­letes from Roskill South Am­a­teur Ath­letic Club and 13 from Hills­bor­ough Ju­nior Ath­let­ics Club. Four out­stand­ing per­form­ers in each event will be pre­sented with a Nick Wil­lis Schol­ar­ship in­clud­ing a dona­tion to put to­wards sports gear, coach­ing and other re­sources to help them to­wards their ath­let­ics goals.
