BOYNE AC's Amy McTeggart finished her athletics season on a high with a big personal best performance at the Hexham Combined Events International in England the weekend before last.

Donning the Irish vest in the Under-18 Heptathlon, the National Youth champion in that event had to settle for the silver medal, but showed significant improvement as she amassed a total of 4,217 points.

Impressive achievements in the High Jump (1.60m), Shot Put (9.89m) and Javelin (29.68m) proved to be the key to bettering her previous best aggregate.
