Sports Day Report 2015 Wisdome Triumph and Personal Bests Galore!

Monday 13th July 2015

This year’s Sports Day was a huge success with well over 200 girls taking part, following the introduction of a new format involving three age categories and A & B competition for Intermediate and Senior pupils. Wisdome retained their Sports Day title, winning the overall trophy with 220 points, ahead of Webbe (192) in second place, Wilkins (150) in third, Ffyler (140) in fourth and Maddock (139) in fifth place. Wisdome won the intermediate and senior competition, with Webbe victorious in the junior age category.

A record number of parents cheered on the competitors and the weather also played its part in making it a great afternoon. The threat of a thunderstorm thankfully subsided and there was a very welcome drop in the temperature following the heat wave on the previous day. This, and just a light breeze, resulted in some really competitive races on the track, especially in the Open 1500m for Intermediate and Senior girls. Rosie Griffin (Ffyler – U5) smashed her personal best byfifteen seconds, winning ahead of Cliona Muir (Wilkins – U4) and Emmeline Bolton (Wisdome – 4), who also broke their best times. There were several other personal best performances, including Amy McCall (Wisdome – L4) who reduced her 800m time by over ten seconds in the junior race. In the intermediate age group Philippa Heath (Wisdome – 4) lowered her 200m time by over two seconds and Annabel Lovett (Wisdome – U4) set a really fast time over 75m Hurdles. In the field events Charlotte Webb (Wisdome – U4) won a very competitive intermediate discus event with the longest throw of her career, Freya Bradbury (Webbe – L4) and Rachael Hanson (Webbe – U4) set personal bests in the junior and intermediate long jump and Kaia Harte (Webbe – L4), improved her shot put by over a metre in the junior event. A special mention also goes to multi-talented international rower and netballer, Sheyi Blackett (Webbe – L6), who won the high jumpwith a leap of 1.46m, and Eleanor Lyon (Wilkins – L6), who overcame a long term injury and break from athletics to win the senior discus. Well done to everyone who took part, further winning results are detailed below.

Following the presentations, the afternoon finished with the ice bucket charity challenge for Cystic Fibrosis. Several teachers were covered with ice cold water, including Mrs Harrington, which provided a much anticipated highlight to the end of the final day.  Thanks and congratulations go to the charity event organiser Eleanor Paterson (Wisdome – 4), everyone who helped her and to those staff volunteering in order to raise much needed funds.
