Highgate Harriers were the top club in the Middlesex Young Athletes League in the last season that they competed in before the virus took a hold of events.  After the first fixture of 2021 held over two days (22 and 23 May) at Finsbury Park (field events) and Perivale (track events) Highgate were in third place with 32 points behind leaders London Heathside (54 points) and Shaftesbury Barnet (36 points).   Eight teams have entered the competition.

There is no doubt with that with a few more athletes on the track they could be winning again as the season progresses. Those Highgate Harriers in winning form were all field eventers. Cecile Reeves won the under 15 girls A high jump with 1.38; Saloma Vessier won the B event with a 1.30 jump and the under 15 girls A long jump with 4.74. Aisha Mariche won the under 17 women A shot with 10.12 and the A javelin with a throw of 34.26.  Tyrah Joseph won the under 17 women B shot with 9.48 and also the B hammer with 19.09.  Arthur Shaw won the Under 13 Boys A javelin with a throw of 16.63.  Remy Weinbrecht won the under 17 men B javelin with 18.91 and Paris Omer won the under 17 men B shot with 7.63 and the A hammer with 15.25.
