Athletics Success

Athletics Success

The Year 10 girls have been training hard this year and their efforts have paid off. They recently competed at Brickfields against seven other East Cornwall schools for the Super 8s. Every competitor had to take part in a track and field event and a relay. The team worked fantastically together and won the event by 70 points. They will now represent East Cornwall in the Cornwall School Games in July.

Individual successes at the Super 8s include  Molly Mather 1st  80m hurdles & 1st High Jump, Liv Francis 1st Shot, Grace Cowd 1st Javelin, Molly Johnson 1st 300m & 2nd Long Jump,  Meg Brockbank Naylor 3rd Long Jump, Molly/Molly/Iona/ Meg 1st 4 x 100m relay.

After athletics successes at Brickfields over the past few years a number of our students train regularly with Plymouth Athletics Club.

Molly Mather is having another very successful season having just won the Gold medal for 300m Hurdles and the Silver for 80m hurdles at the Cornwall Athletics Champs at Carn Brae. She has also been selected for the Regional Youth Development Programme.

Any students interested in athletics can attend our school practices at lunchtimes and can also start at Plymouth Athletics Club on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. For more details see Miss Milford or visit their website www.plymouthac.co.uk.
