Sports Hall Athletics is a great opportunity to take a large number of children to compete as one team representing their school. 18 children went to New Mills for the Sports Hall Athletics competing with 6 other schools. Everyone's points went towards the total team score. The noise in the hall was deafening at times with everyone supporting and cheering on their friends. All children competed in 2 running events and 2 field events. The boys were on the track first and sprinted fantastically to win both the sprints and also a relay. The girls starting on the field managed to win both the long jump, the triple jump and the throw. What a fantastic start! They then switched over, the boys matched the girls in the field also winning the same 3 events. We have some amazing jumpers in our school! The result of the day however was the girls’ track events with Hayfield winning all 6 race events. This was quite some achievement.
Well done to all and next week we will get to do it all over again at the High Peak Finals. Team Members: Harry, Will, Charlie, Harrison, Jojo, Alicia, Natalia, Beth, Sophie, Katy, Daniel, Rio, Jack, Sam, Amelia, Emily, Madeleine and Jess.
