Cornwall Super 8s Athletics Final

Cornwall Super 8s Athletics Final

Our Year 7 girls athletics team travelled to Par again last week to represent East Cornwall in the Super 8 athletics finals. They set their sights high and all agreed to try to aim to bring 5 medals back to TCC. They knew that the faced the top 2 teams from North, West, South and Mid Cornwall and agreed to enjoy the last school competition of the season and go for it!
They certainly did that and performed well above our expectations. Rosie and Chloe started the day with excellent performances in the 75m hurdles with Rosie coming first overall and Chloe 2nd in her heat. This was quickly followed by Poppy and Savannah in the 800m with Poppy winning by some distance and Savannah beating her PB to come 9th. This set the standard for the day with Holly coming 1st in 200m and Maddie 5th in her heat, Alice and Sky coming 1st and 3rd in 100m heats, Poppy and Chloe coming 1st and 2nd in long jump, Rosie and Holly coming 1st and 3rd in high jump, Sky and Savannah coming 1st and 9th in shot putt, Alice and Maddie coming 3rd and 8th in javelin. This was topped off with Rosie, Alice, Holly and Poppy winning the 4x100m relay by some distance and Sky and Savannah running in the winning East Cornwall medley relay.
Despite the disappointment of organisers deciding to not give out individual medals after the first two events this was an unbelievable performance by our Year 7 team, who are mostly new to competing in athletics, as they would have come home with more than double the medals they aimed for.
We are still waiting to understand and clarify the team result and will let athletes and parents know as soon as we do. Thank you to parents for their support on the day.
Well done girls. What a day!
