Sports Report - Athletics Meet
A small group of yr 9 s joined athletes from BCA, King Alfred's, Brymore and Haygrove at the first athletics meeting of the season. The small group brought great success- B Cooper (cheered on by his little brother M Cooper) was outstanding throughout. He won the boys triple jump by over 70cms (his long jump practice length also beat all those competing in the long jump competition!) , B Cooper also managed to keep all yr 9 boys at bay in the 100m (12.7s) despite being run very close by our own A Francis(13.1s) who had decided to warm up for the 100m by winning the yr 9 1500m just mins earlier in a great time (5.27mins). L Stockham was second place in the 1500m equalling his pb with 5.30mins. A Francis also came 2nd in the yr9 long jump with a jump of 4.60m.
Z Mizon came 2nd in the yr 9 girls 100m and a good long jump close to 4m. J Dabennett reached 3.46m jump and M Hellard jumped consistently around 3.30m.
Other staff complemented the attitude, effort and charming behaviour of our group due in no small part by the polite, willing and charming manner of B Cooper who without being asked, helped in managing the long jump -raking, measuring and encouraging the jumpers.
A fantastic group who will be at the sedgemoor area trials next weds at Brymore.
