7 Jul 22

There have been various athletic events over the last few weeks, here our Head of Athletics Mrs Scahill, reports on two of the latest: the National Prep Schools Track and Field Championships, as well as the Athletics Competition at Northgate.  

Athletics competition in Northgate – Mrs Scahill, Head of Athletics   

Year 7 athletes competed against other schools in South Suffolk at the Athletics competition in Northgate on 23 June.  Head of Athletics, Mrs Scahill reports.  Both teams gave maximum effort in their events with the girls coming in a very close 3rd place and the boys in 5th; this is a competition where you gained points for places.    

In the boys A team Oliver came 2nd in the 200m and 3rd in the shot.  There were also 3rd places for  Eli in the 60m and  Oliver in the long jump.  

In the B team Lade won the long jump, Tom the shot and 3rd position for Harry in the javelin.    

In the girls A team there were wins for Romilly 300m, Rosie shot and Amelie discus, with 2nd places for Felicity in 800m and Emelia in the high jump.   

In the B team Annie won the discus, Rosie was 2nd in the 100m band and there were 3rd places for Abi 300m, Sophie 800m and Emma 60m.     

Well done to all the athletes, particularly those who achieved personal bests.  The girls team scored 112 just 3 points behind the winners and the boys team scored 102.               

National Prep Schools Track and Field Championships – Mrs Scahill, Head of Athletics   

Having won or been  placed second in their event at the East Area Prep School Championships, three athletes from School travelled to the Pingles Stadium, Nuneaton to represent the East team at the National Prep Schools Track and Field Championships on Monday 4 July.   

Year 7’s Romilly, along with Year 8’s Jasper and Huw competed with 24 athletes from 12 regional teams in England, Huw was up first in the shot where he made it through to the last eight for an extra throw.  He finished in 7th place.    

Next up was Jasper in the 1500m, he finished  well with a personal best in 11th place.   

Finally it was Romilly’s turn in the 800m, who after having won her heat, had a long wait to find out the times from the other faster heat which would determine her placing.  Overall she finished 8th place, knocking five seconds off her personal best.    

A very well done to the athletes who as always put in maximum effort to give their best on the day, and thank you to the parents for all their encouragement and support.
