The Annual Area Athletics took place at King’s Somborne Recreation Ground on Monday 19th June in temperatures over 27 degrees. Despite the hot conditions the pupils performed to a very high level and achieved some excellent results both track and field. The Young Sports Leaders were given instructions regarding the scoring and competition format. They were then able to record the necessary results for each competitor. Every athlete had to complete 3 field events (long jump, over arm throw and a chest push) as well as 2 track events which included two sprints. Due to the weather the 300m race became a ‘fun’ run for those that wanted to have a go but was not recorded. Our Young Sports Leaders Year 7 and 8 did a fantastic job on all the disciplines and were praised by the coaching company who had organised the competition.
Scores were totalled for each year group (Years 3 / 4 / 5 and 6) and points allocated according to the best performance of each athlete. The top 3 team scores were very close as the team with the lowest score would be the winner.
