Champions of Bishop’s Stortford!
The Summercroft athletics squad started off the school’s 2019 sports schedule in style by coming first in the town’s indoor athletics competition. A total of 18 schools took part, with the event being split across two days. First up were the field events, which included foam javelin throwing, chest-push, standing long jump and speed bounce. It was incredible to see how well the children did after only a couple of sessions practising.
After this, the scores were announced and the team got a huge confidence boost upon hearing that they were in the lead. They never looked back, winning every race in the running segment of the competition. The points were tallied up and the final standings for the top three were:
1st – Summercroft 316 points
2nd – Reedings 276 points
3rd – St Andrews 270 points
Back at Summercroft, we were incredibly proud of the score the children posted, but even more so with the way in which the squad conducted themselves as winners and in representing the school. They will now go on to represent the town in the County Championships in March, which will be an amazing experience.
