Indoor Athletics @ Cirencester College 10/1/2019

This was our first time getting through to the next round of the cluster group indoor athletics. Eight boys and nine girls represented the school at the second round of the indoor athletics. The meet is held indoors with a variety of activities. Four other schools were there, the top schools in Gloucestershire. Unfortunately, we missed out on the medals but we were very close. We came fourth overall.

Although it was a serious affair, there were some fun races throughout the morning. Amelie, Angela, Henry and Jacob enjoyed a mixed relay fun race. Rory, Emily, Georgia and Amelia came third in the obstacle race and tried very hard to succeed. Charlie and Jack won their relay with a fantastic race. Charlie and Jacob tied in the javelin at first place. Angela threw the longest distance in the javelin for the girls. 

Jessica scored highly in the triple jump which is always the most difficult field event. Phoebe was our star vertical jumper. Ed scored 43 in the speed bounce and came in the top three at the event. Alexander was our star performer and caught up from a long way behind in two relay races, notably the relay race with Jack, Philippe and Egan. They were amazing and put in such a race we were disappointed they didn’t get placed. An excellent performance boys and girls. 

Angela and Amelia received special certificates for respect and determination. They were chosen by the sixth form committee for these qualities. Well done girls, a fantastic achievement. 

A big thank you to Mrs. Curry and Mrs. Snape Jones for all their support and help at the event.
