Our year 4 athletics teams travelled the short distance to Ryde School to take part in the Year 3&4 Sports Hall Athletics Festival in which 5 schools attended with 7 teams competing overall. The teams are made up of 6 boys and 6 girls. The event requires athletes to perform a field event which is either a jump or a throw and compete in 2 running events including a relay.
Our teams performed extremely well in both track and field events with our A team winning the event and our B team coming a very creditable 5th. The B team girls recorded the fastest 1 lap race of the day. The A team were in gold position at the end of the field events with Binstead snapping closely at their heels, just 8 points behind and so a good performance in the running races was very important.
After the all 10 running events and the final team relay race were completed, the scores were checked and Greenmount had kept their 8 point lead to pip Binstead and win the gold medals.
Well done to all our athletes on a strong performance.
