Senior District Athletics Championships - May 2018
On Monday 21st May, we took 73 athletes to Palmer Park in Reading for the Senior District Championships. The students all performed brilliantly in their individual events and were a credit to the school throughout the whole day with their behaviour and support for each other.
The team results were as follows:
U15 Girls (Year 9) - THIRD in Division 1
U15 Boys (Year 9) - THIRD in Division 1
U17 Girls (Year 10) - JOINT WINNERS of Division 2
U17 Boys (Year 10) - JOINT WINNERS of Division 2
Students scored points for the team if they finished in the top 6 of their event (each event had approximately 20 competitors). There were some outstanding individual achievements throughout the day.
Edson Chillery - THIRD in 400m Hurdles
Sam Swan - THIRD in High Jump
Ben James - THIRD in Javelin
Euan Stewart - THIRD in 1500m

Owen Crabb achieved a personal best of 1.66m and came runner up for 'Best Field Performance' for whole day.
Ella Manning achieved a personal best of 11.6s in 75m Hurdles. This was a Championship Best Performance as she beat the record which was set way back in 1989! She has since gone on to better this time (11.46s) and as a result has been invited to National Schools. Well done Ella!
It was a fantastic day all round. Well done to all of the students who represented the school. You did us very proud!
