Athletics Success

Athletics Success (main)

Last Wednesday, a group of Year 9 and 10 students attended Perivale Athletics Track to compete in the annual borough athletics competition. Congratulations are due to our Year 10 boys team who came joint first overall (alongside Drayton Manor High School). They were defending their title of champions from last year. 

Our students were impeccably well behaved and performed magnificently throughout the day. It was a joy to see the camaraderie and togetherness in the team. My personal highlight has to be Kyle Ndukuba's performance. He led the triple jump competition through round 1 and 2. An athlete from Twyford then knocked him into second place in the final round. With the final jump of the competition, Kyle had to jump further than 10.40 in order to win. As the crowd went quiet, he jumped a whopping 11.21 to take gold. Magnificent!

Our athletes qualified for almost every final and had a number of top 3 placings. Congratulations to all who took part.
