Our Years 9/10 Intermediate girls’ Athletics team recently travelled to Woodside Stadium in Watford for the A Regional finals of the ESSA Track and Field Athletics event. The top 27 schools in East Anglia: our girls were put in a group with 11 others on the day, the twelve teams providing two competitors for each event. It meant that our girls were up against 22 of the best from East Anglia: it was going to be tough!. Special mention must go to Rosa McInerney whose birthday it was: she celebrated in style, coming away with the most points for the team with 41. She was placed 3rd in high jump and 11th in hurdles, a great achievement! Georgia Harrold was another to perform well: 4th in 100m and part of the relay team to finish on a score of 36. Chloe Outen achieved an excellent PB in the triple jump to be placed 6th and gained a combined score of 36. Maddie Craig scored 37 points from her hurdles and long jump. Others in the 30s were Flora Johnston on 31, Joanne Garnett on 32 (her high placing in discus gaining 21 points) and Ella Holliday on 32. It was a great team effort and a big thank you goes to those who stepped in to cover absence on the day. We wait for our final position in the competition, but reaching this standard is worthy of the profoundest congratulation. T Shirts have been ordered and will hopefully be here for the last day of term to mark this fantastic achievement: well done to all!
