What an excellent year for Bishop Stopford’s School Athletics Team! Coming 2nd by 2 measly points in the mixed competition!!!
There were notable performances from all boys realy teams- all winning their events. Eloise and Kwabena are district champions in 100m sprints, Lois is champion in discus, Nadine champion in the high jump and Marvin achieving gold in the long jump. Year 9 girls also won their relay event by a long stretch!!!
There were also a number of 2nd and 3rd places across the events, not only in the sprints, but also the long distance, throwing and jumping activities. These are the positions that have helped us reach as high as we did this year! It’s crazy to think that we were only 2 points behind first place! Overall each boys team came 3rd / 4th with the Yr7&8 girls coming 6th, yr9 girls coming 3rd and senior girls winning their competition! Well done all those involved in the day, staff and students. It was a very long, but entertaining day. Look out for our display which will show all your results.
Next year we are obviously going for the win! We have our Olympic Athlete mentor and coach Montell Douglas working with us across the year. Students will need to sign up and sign a contract to ensure commitment from the whole year. There is no doubt though that Montell’s experience can guide us to even more victories for 2016. Talk to me if you’re interested!
