Athletics achievements for Prep pupils

Head of Boys’ Games, Tom Manley, writes:

It has been a successful week for Athletics in the Prep School. On Saturday 10 June Will F, Edward R and Edward M (all in Year 7) competed at the County Athletics Event at King’s Park, Bournemouth. Success came through silver medals for Edward R (800m) and Edward M (Shot). This meant that both Edwards finished as the second best athletes in the County in their chosen event.

On 14 June a large number of Year 6 and 8 pupils competed in the annual Senior Wessex Event at King’s Park. The Prep School won five medals in total, with Year 8 pupils Anna and Charlie also likely to be forwarded onto the national event held in Birmingham later this month. Medal winners were:

Charlie S – Silver in 75m Hurdles and Bronze in the Triple Jump  
Anna P – Silver in 1500m  
Toby B – Bronze in Shot  
Simba I – Bronze in Shot

Well done to all those athletes who competed!
