Indoor Athletics District Event Success

As the St Michael's boys and girls indoor athletics teams both qualified for the District competition, they travelled by mini-bus to Sir Fred's school on Thursday 4th February 2016.


The teams represented Monks Walk family against seven other area teams. The children had been training hard and practicing regularly in preparation for the harder competition.


Individual results are yet to be received but notable outstanding performances were:

  • 1st place for the boys under/over relay,
  • Elliot C, Iuean and Jonathan W's baton changeovers,
  • Maya's 70 in 30secs speedbounce and 12m javelin throw.

Every competitor fought hard for the best result in their events and with great anticipation the results were announced. Unfortunately the girls were pipped with the top three schools being Oak View, St Mary's and winners Applecroft. Then the boys results were announced, and after a very noisy hall all afternoon, there was not a sound to be heard....

Third place - Applecroft (gasp!), second place - St Mary's (shock, gasp, hope...) and the winners ....ST MICHAEL'S!!!!! Raptuous applause.


The boys therefore go through to the County final at Wodon Park, Ware in March.
