June 12th / Today the annual district sports athletics took place at Woodside athletics track in Garston. This competition involves all the schools in the St Albans and Harpenden taking part in athletic events such as the hurdles, 100m, 1500m, shot putt, discus and relay throughout the day.
The Year 7 team had an excellent day, coming 2nd in the district and missing out on 1st place by just half a point!!! Year 8 missed out on a medal position by 2 points, finishing in an impressive 4th place. The Year 9 and 10 teams both came 7th, which is very respectable considering there are 15 teams within the district.
Special mention should be made to both Eghosa Igori (7S) and Marella Whitfield (10F) who broke the district records in the 100m (13.3s) and 1500m (4m53s) respectively. An excellent achievement considering the hot weather – well done!
