Two County Champions at the Wiltshire Schools Track and Field Championships
Another successful day for our athletes at the Track and Field Championships on Saturday, following our most successful Area Athletics Championships in May.
All the athletes produced excellent results with a number recording personal best times and distances.
Double County Champion Mary * easily won both the heat and the final of the Minor Girls 200m. Mary then went on to run the lead off leg of the Minor Girls 4 x 100m relay, giving the team a start that they never lost.
Our second County Champion was Kieran * who, in only his fourth race at the event, was victorious in the Minor Boys Hurdles.
Ed was runner up in the Minor Boys 100m and then brought the 4 x 100m team home in third place.
A number of our athletes narrowly missed achieving a podium place with Liam * finishing fourth in the Inter Boys 800m, Josh * fourth in the Junior Boys 800m, Kelly fourth in the Minor Girls Shot.
Kimberley doubled up and competed in both the 800m and 1500m, finishing 5th and 7th respectively, a brave move as the weather was not good for the distance races.
In a strongly contested Inter Boys 100m race Kirk * finished fourth in his heat.
All athletes are to be congratulated on the way they conducted themselves during the day and they were a credit to the school. Well done to you all.
*Personal best performance.
