Junior District Athletics Championships - June 2018
On Tuesday 26th June, it was the turn of our Juniors to compete at the prestigious District Schools Athletics Championships at Aldershot Military Stadium. We took 68 athletes to this event which turned out to be one of the hottest days of the year so far!
The students not only performed excellently in all of the events - their attitude and support for each other was incredible (leading to a teacher from a local secondary school comment how amazing they were when spectating). For a lot of them, this was their first time either at a large athletics event such as this or first time representing the school.
Team Results were as follows:
U13 Boys (Year 7) - SECOND overall (winning Runners Up Trophy)
U13 Girls (Year 7) - EIGHTH overall
U14 Boys (Year 8) - WINNERS of Division 2 (SECOND overall)
U14 Girls (Year 8) - SIXTH on Division 2
For these championships, athletes needed to finish in the top 8 of their event to score. We had a great number of students achieve this - which was fantastic as there were approximately 20-25 athletes in every event.
Some individual achievements included:
Freddie Schlagg - THIRD in Javelin
Becca Duncan - THIRD in Discus
Adam Leppard - THIRD in 300m
Patrick Hodge - THIRD in 70m Hurdles
Andre Logan - THIRD in 80m
Euan Stewart - THIRD in 800m
Nikhil Gurung - SECOND in Shot
Henry Rattray - SECOND in 600m
U14 Boys Relay - SECOND
Henry Rattray - FIRST in Long Jump
Sam Swan - FIRST in High Jump
Sam Swan - FIRST in 200m
Overall, a brilliant day in soaring temperatures. Another day where we were all proud to be part of Team Court Moor! Well done to everybody who competed.
