Athletes' Success at County Athletics Track and Field Event

Well done to year 7,8 and 9 students on their success at the Hertfordshire County Athletics Track and Field Championships, which was held at Jarman Park, Hemel Hempstead, on Saturday 9th June. Congratulations to Toby (Year 9), who achieved first place in discus (and automatic selection for entry to the National Finals) and also to Nick (Year 9) who won 1st place in the 200 metres and 3rd place in the 100 metres events. Year 7 student Roraigh won 1st place in the Javelin and broke the County Record. His throw of 36.57m means he is currently ranked 5th in the country. Runners up included Grace (Year 9) in the 800 metres race and Scarlett (Year 8) who competed in the hurdles. This is a fantastic achievement and the first time the school had three teams qualify for the highest calibre regional final in the country. It was also the first time in twelve years that the Years 9 and 10 Boys' team had been selected for the Track & Field A Finals.

On Tuesday 19th June the three teams attended the East Anglia Region ‘A’ Finals in Chelmsford . All  teams stepped up to the high standard of competition, which resulted in many personal best times for the athletes. The Inter Girls team finished in 11th place, the Inter Boys team finished in 10th place, and the Junior Boys team achieved ninth place, only just missing out on the National Finals!
