HUNTINGTON — Student-athletes, ages 6 to 19, had the chance to test their power, speed, agility and quickness Sunday during the annual Youth Sports Combine at the Chris Cline Complex Field.

Organizers said the purpose of the combine is not only to test each athlete's individual skills level but also to see how they stack up against others their own age.

During the combine, each athlete is judged on a number of drills, including vertical jump, 40-yard sprint and 300-yard repeat shuttle.

This event also serves as a fundraiser for the Hoops Family Children's Hospital's community outreach program, which is working to equip schools in the Tri-State with portable Automated External Defibrillators (AED).
