On Thursday 21st June, 35 year 7 and year 8 pupils took part in the Newcastle Schools Junior Athletics Championships at Northwood Stadium. It was a thoroughly enjoyable day and we were very lucky with the weather; only having one heavy shower throughout the day.
All pupils performed brilliantly and showed excellent sportsmanship towards each other and other schools.
Overall the year 7 boys came 7th, year 7 girls came 8th and the year 8 girls came 10th.
Casey Maddock in year 7 won the 1500m and not only achieved a personal best run of 4m46s, he broke the stadium record for his event by 20 seconds! Morgan Knight in year 7 came 2nd in the 800m, Ellie Pyatt in year 7 came 2nd in her Hurdles heat and then achieved 4th place in the final and Courtney Scarlet came 4th in the 800m.
Well done to all competitors who were a credit to the school.
Special thanks go to Mr Davies and Mrs Steele for helping Miss Hambleton with events.
