Track & Field Cup

This Tuesday was the first round of a national athletics competition called the Track and Field Cup. All athletes must be strong at both track and field events to score highly. The inter girls squad had a challenging field events art but improved their position in the afternoon track events and came 7th overall.

The junior girls team were in second place at half time after all the track events. They knew every cm or second counted in the afternoon field events and after a thrilling relay finish they came first overall and are through to the A string regional final in June at Millfield.

Foundation Sports Day

The junior and inter athletics squads were out again on Friday competing against the other schools belonging to the United Westminster Schools and Grey Coat Hospital Foundation.

Georgie Kent ran a season’s best of 12.84 in the 100m and Zara Obamakinwa decided that this year she would break the discus record with a throw of 27m 61cm, rather than the shot one which she broke last year.

Both junior and inter teams won their age categories and as a result were re-awarded the Millenium Cup for the overall highest scoring girls’ team for the 12th year consecutively.
