Last night we took our Athletics teams to Wath for a fixture involving all the major schools in Rotherham. Once more we were well represented at Year 7 and 8 and students who attended had a really nice evening.
A special shout out to Ben Robinson and Reece Seymour. Neither boy has represented our school this year and until I had a polite word with them during period 4 this afternoon neither were intending on changing this.
Both decided that they would come and have a go. They both entered the javelin with Reece finishing a credible 5th place and Ben an impressive 3rd. This encouraged both to have a go at the Discus. This time Ben was 3rd and Reece won the event. I really think this will do both boys confidence a lot of good so please make a fuss of them when you see them.
We had some other strong performances and it was nice to see the gap is closing in terms of the level of competition that our pupils are now starting to put up against other schools. We are not there yet but we are moving in the right direction.
