On Tuesday afternoon we took 4 teams across to Edmondscote for the School Games Super Six Athletics event. This unique team event means each individual must compete in 1 track event (100,200 or 800) and 1 field event (Long jump, Shot or javelin) – from this the winning team will go forward to the level 3 School Games finals later in July.
The team results are yet to be published, but Southam had some fantastic results so we have our fingers crossed.
We had convincing wins for Charlie (7), Isabel M (7) and Maddie (8) in the 100m. Similarly proving strong in the 800m with wins for Jonathon (8) and Madeleine (8) and second places for Holly (7) and Abi (8).
Performance of the day went to Max (8) for the best sporting gesture – as he assisted a student from Aylesford along for 400m of the 800m to ensure the boy finished the race.
Well done everyone some fantastic performances.
Mrs Turton and Mr MacGibbon
Year 7 and 8 girls and year 8 boys all qualify for the Level 3 School Games Competition in July.
