Indoor Athletics Competition

On Tuesday 14th January our Y7 Indoor Athletics teams competed at a Rotherham Schools event hosted by Rawmarsh. Despite a lack of experience in this type of competition, the pupils gave a really strong account of themselves firstly through their performances but also through their conduct and support of one another. They also showed good organisation skills making sure that every event was covered. One of the most pleasing things to see was the will of our pupils to do their absolute best. The runners made this apparent with their attitude of making sure they finished one place better than it looked as though they were going to. Just gaining one extra place meant extra points to our tally. We were never outclassed in any event and there were some very impressive performances from all involved. Due to the format of the evening and number of heats, It is not possible to give final positions or placings. Although we didn’t make the top 2 teams who go on to compete in the South Yorkshire  Championships, every Athlete from every school knew they had been in a battle against our spirited side.
