Y8 athletes took part in Plymouth and West Devon championships at Brickfields on Tuesday 16t June.
A team of 7 made up from 5 girls and 2 boys from Year 8. Girls were Leah Parnell-Moses (100m & High Jump/relay) Emily Frost (200m/relay) Mia Cole (200m/relay) Izzy Hiller (long jump) Sophie Isaacs (Shot)
Boys Gabriel Schraibman (100m hurdles/200m) Ben Edmunds (1500m/long jump)
A winning start with Gabriel Schraibman running to 1st place in an excellent 100m hurdles field. Next the 100m girls sprint saw another Tavistock 1st place with and excellent run from Leah Parnell-Moses who out in a PB and fastest overall time over 2 heats.
Mia Cole ran a very good race in the 800M coming 3rd in a very strong field which included county runners.
Emily Frost ran home 1st in the girls 200m, putting in a great performance.
Ben Edmunds ran an excellent 1500m to come home in 4th place and was also placed in the long jump event, competing very well.
An injury to Schraibman (hip) during the 200m was enough to rule out further success, but to his testament he carried on, finishing the race showing real determination.
Isabel Hillier took 3rd place in the girls long jump and Leah Parnell-Moses came in1st place in the girls high jump with another PB, beating a strong field.
The big finish didn’t disappoint with Tavistock again taking 1st place honours in an excellent 4x100m relay. The team of Frost, Parnell-Moses, Cole and Hillier took a very deserved 1st place and finished the event with the fastest relay time overall.
An excellent and talented Athletics team who represented the college in style.
