BPS Athletics

On a cloudy Tuesday night, the Westholme athletics team travelled to Witton Park to compete in the BPS Athletics match.

We were all excited and ready for a challenge. The first event was the Year 5 and 6 girls shuttle relay. Fortunately, we came first in our heat and qualified for the finals. However in the finals we had a delay in the baton change and ended up coming 4th overall.

The Year 3 and 4 sprint races were next on the track. Congratulations to all of the runners who qualified however we didn’t manage to win any medals. Next we had the field events of long jump, triple jump, rounders ball throw and cricket ball throw. We were very close to getting medals in all of these events but unfortunately just missed out. At the end of the day, we came back with two medals: a Silver medal for Eve Downham in the 700 metres and a Gold medal for Harry Richmond in the boys cricket ball throw.

We all did extremely well and pushed ourselves to the best of our abilities. It was a very action-packed evening which was full of competitive spirit. Congratulations to the team.
