Y5/6 Sportshall Athletics Competition at John Smeaton Academy – Runners Up (19/11/18)


19 November 2018

This week we were able to take the whole of Y6, and a couple of Y5s, to the Regional Sportshall Athletics Tournament. The event consisted of multiple running, jumping and throwing events, and everyone played their part, contributing to an excellent overall team score of 314 points! The results meant we finished in joint 1st position in the competition. Unfortunately only one team could qualify, so it went down to which school had more first place finishes in the events. Again, both schools were tied with 7 each. It then went down to which school had the most 2nd place finishes, and we just missed out, 7 to 4. Although the team didn’t win, they should be very proud of how close they came, everybody who competed gave all they had to their events. The organisers actually said it was the closest competition they had run in 27 years! We still managed to qualify for a runners-up event to be held later in the year, which we look forward to!
