District Athletics 2017

The Annual District Championships took place on Thursday 16 May at UEA.

We took an enthusiastic team of about 50 athletes – made up of Junior Girls and Boys from Years 8 & 9, and Intermediate Boys and Girls from Year 10.

The team competed in track and field events against teams from Thorpe St Andrew, Sprowston, Taverham and Ormiston Victory.

We are always proud of our athletes: there is always good team spirit. All our athletes gave of their best, and tried hard to score valuable points for the team. As usual, we came up against some very tough competition this year.

Our aim was to finish higher than the fourth place we achieved last year. And we succeeded!

WELL DONE TO EVERYONE WHO COMPETED! GREAT TEAM PERFORMANCE!
Thanks for supporting each other so well!
