Combined events athletics
The combined athletics championships took place on Friday. We took a male and female Year 9 team to compete in five athletics events: shot putt, high jump, long jump, sprint hurdles and the 800m.
Scores were awarded for the times recorded in the track events and distances covered in the field events to create an individual score and leaderboard. Also a team score was calculated.
In the boys competition we finished 5th as a team – Jack finished 7th with 1226 pts, Will in 14th with 1039 points, Liam in 18th with 942pts and Archie in 20th with 870 pts
The girls finished in 6th place in the team competition. Millie finished 12th with 1305pts, Susie 17th with 1171 pts, Anna 20th with 1114 pts and Cara 24th with 1001pts.
The year 9 team had their first competitive games at a tournament held at Deferrers. Attendance at rounders club has been really high and amongst the players there are a high number who know the rules and tactical elements of the game.
The first game saw a nervous and rusty performance in the field which left us with too many rounders to chase whilst batting, losing 7 -4 to Deferres B. The next game was much improved, although a defeat by one rounder to Deferrers A we were in the game in both innings.
Our final game against John Taylor saw an all over complete performance with more rounders being scored in our batting innings and some slick fielding.
Team – Abi P, Susie, Anna, Claudia, Abi B, Grace, Cerys, Lucy and Elli
