Last night the Year 8 athletics team competed against schools in the Plymouth and West Devon area. There were some outstanding individual performances, as well as both the boys and girls teams working together to perform to the highest standards. This was also combined with fantastic support of each other.
This was reflected in the girls finishing 6th and the boys 4th in the team competition.
There were many top two finishes and all the results are listed below.
In particular – Izzy Bray with an outstanding endurance run finished 3rd in the 800m and then jumped over 7 metres to 2nd in the triple jump.
Jacob Bevan, Charlie Elkington and Tyler finished 2nd in the 100m, 200m and hurdles respectively and then powered the boys relay team to 2nd.
Tabitha Myler – finished 2nd in the high jump.
