Indoor Athletics competition held at Eggbuckland Community College
Eggbuckland Indoor Athletics 2017
Our Indoor Athletics heat was held at Eggbuckland Community College on Thursday 9th November with 6 teams competing for the top spot.
The girls were first up on the track setting some incredible times in the 1+1 and 6 lap parlauf relays. Meanwhile the boys were jumping to victory on the Long and triple jump. The support and cheering from fellow team members was amazing, we raised the roof!
Then it was the boys turn to take to the track with some fantastic sprints performed by all. It was then the girls turn on the long and triple jumps where they gained some amazing scores for their team.
After a quick change, the girls took back to the track for the 2+2 and 4x1 relays. Lots of clean changeovers by many which can make the difference of a podium place! The boys went back to the field events to take on chest push and speed bounce.
After another change over, it was time for the favourite obstacle race! This is where teams could pick up unwanted penalty points that would make a difference to the medal table.
Austin Farm finished in second place. Our athletes felt incredibly proud collecting their Silver Medals. Furthermore, we were very excited to learn on Friday 16th November that we had been chosen as the wildcard to progress through to the city wide competition in February. Our athletes found this out in assembly and gave an almighty cheer – echoed by the rest of the school! We were informed that we have been given this opportunity as a result of our sound technical ability which the children demonstrated at the heat.
