English Schools Athletic Association Cup - County Round
The English Schools Athletics Cup is a very prestigious and competitive countrywide event. 12 athletes from year 7 and 8’s compete together, having to do 2 events each - 1 track and 1 field. 12 athletes from year 9 and 10 compete together, having to do 2 events each 1 track and 1 field. Therefore, it is quite a specific competition as all athletes competing need a track and a field event which is unusual in athletics as athletes usually specialise in one or the other. Athletes get points for how far they thrown or how fast they run with all points adding up for a total team score at the end. All athletes involved were a credit to the school and performed exceptionally well, scoring very good points. . Both our teams won the relay races in emphatic style.
Our junior team finished with 312 points in total and our inter team finished with 340 points in total. This left both teams in 4th place but due to being in a very strong round we may still advance to the regional finals based on our high point scores - to be confirmed when all county rounds have taken place
