Year 8 Plymouth Athletics Championships

Year 8 Plymouth Athletics Championships

Another successful athletics championships for TCC athletes with the Year 8 girls’ team competing at Brickfields this week. Following a fantastic season last year the Year 8 girls started the season with 4 of their original team absent so had to work to build a new team. They have worked really hard since Easter and showed fantastic team spirit at Brickfields last Wednesday evening. They knew they had to perform to their best and were really supportive of our new athletes and our three Year 7s ( Holly, Maddie and Alice) who were asked to step up a year.
The team set their aim to come top 5 again and pulled out some fantastic performances against 11 other schools, with many getting PBs, to come 4th overall behind Mount Kelly, Plymouth College and Plymouth High School for Girls, beating all of the Plymouth comprehensive schools and DHSG. Needless to say the team were delighted as the results were called.

Notable individual results: Holly T 3rd shot, Mia 3rd Javelin, Maddie 1st in 300m H, Holly B 3rd 200m , Holly M 5th 1500m, Charlotte 5th discus and 5th 800m, Heidi 2nd high jump, 4×4 relay 3rd in heat and Bridgette completed her 1st 75m hurdles race.

Well done team ! ( Holly T, Holly M, Mia, Charlotte, Bridgette, Heidi, Holly B, Maddie and Alice.)
