We took a 37 strong Athletics squad (Year 7-10) to Brickfields yesterday to compete in this tough competition.
This involved students competing in a range of events in running, throwing and jumping disciplines. The students straight from the first event, competed outstandingly well and managed to collect 18 top 2 finishes.
There were so many fantastic performances, but in particular some students managed to achieve across different events.
Becky McArthur (Year 9) won the 75 metres hurdles and then helped Eggbuckland relay team win their race, as they had only three runners.
Jack Plummer (Year 9) won the discuss and then finished 2nd in the 800 metres. This was a brilliant race with Jack clawing back a 40 metre deficit on the leader just to narrowly miss out on the victory.
Emily Frost (Year 10) showed her sprinting prowess with 2nd in the 100 metres and then helping the 400 x 100m relay girls team to also finish 2nd.
Leon Bray (Year 9) demonstrated an excellent all round athletic ability. Winning his 80 metres hurdle race with ease and finishing 3rd in the high jump. He then followed this up with a powerful 2nd leg in the 4 x 100m relay to help the Year 9 boys win the race.
All the students were superb and as always performed with commitment and the highest standards.
