Our first athletics meet this Saturday saw some excellent performances in the fresh winds at RHS.
The Year 9 team was much depleted due to various reasons. However those who stood in: Year 7 Annabel Yates in 800m and Year 8 Maud Peel in the 200m, were real stars. Chloe Outen narrowly came second in triple jump with 9.10m – just 7cm short of first place gained on the last jump; Amelia Brown was first in discus while Eleanor Berridge came 2nd in shot. In the end the team finished a very creditable fourth from six.
The Year 8s did one better, finishing third out of seven. The top results were: Amy Graham first in the 800m with an outstanding time of 2.37 and first in javelin with a throw of 28.43m; and Joanne Garnett first in discus with a throw of 22.99m.
The Year7s came first and dominated their group, with firsts from Vicky Burrows in high jump, Annabel Yates in discus and Sophie Graham in javelin with 30.11m. Many thanks to the gap students and Laura Graham who came along to help manage the team (and roar on her sisters’ dominant performances).
