Dane Court teams wipe the board at Super Eight athletics event

Thursday 26 May 2011, Marlowe Academy
This was a Year 7 only event. Pupils had to compete in two of the following eight events: Shot, Javelin, Long Jump, High Jump, Hurdles, 100m, 200m, 800m and four of the team took part in a relay. The weather was very bad! Rain and hail, windy and cold but the students persevered nonetheless showing commitment and spirit throughout. For many of them it was their first experience of an athletics tournament in this format and they all worked hard to achieve a very pleasing set of results.
