Y7 & Y8 Borough Athletics - Jan 2020

Last Thursday and Friday I took year 7and 8 boys and girls to the boro Sportshall Athletics championships.

On Thursday it was the year 7’s turn, after having a fantastic turn out during training I managed to select an excellent team.

The year 7 Boys were dominant on the track and dominant on the field, and were rewarded with WINNING the champs and go onto to represent Barking and Dagenham at the London Youth Games REGIONAL finals which will be held in the copper box arena next Thursday 13th.

The year 7 girls, although were two down in their team, finished a brilliant 5th

On Friday, it was the turn of the year 8 boys and girls.

The boys fought hard on the track finishing 2nd and 3rd in their races, onto the field, they put their heart and soul into their events, but unfortunately finished 6th with only 10 points separating 6th-2nd place! It was a close fought competition.

The girls had some last minute changes due to injuries, but finished 3rd with only a few points in it.

Please congratulate the students if you see them around school
