Y5/6 Indoor Athletics

January 24, 2018 @ 2:30 pm - 5:00 pm

Steyning Primary attended the Southern Area Indoor Athletics Finals held at Davison High, Sports Centre which is part of their school. Twenty seven athletes represented Year 5 and 6 in eleven events, forty four in total on the day. These included relays, sprints, speed bounce plus throwing and jumping events. Each athlete could only take part in two individual and two relays, meaning that this tournament is a real team fixture.
In the final were Georgia Gardens, Chesswood, Arundel, Thomas a Becket, Eastbrook and ourselves. These were the top six schools from the whole of the Southern Area and the winner would represent our Area in the All Sussex Finals. Our representatives fought hard all afternoon, with all running races being timed as we had to run in two heats. Overall there were some outstanding performances including Rose Sykes who won both the Standing Long Jump and Vertical Jump, Evie Poole winning her Vertical Jump, Brandon Hedayat winning his Ball Push, Alfie Brewer, Teddy Ballard, Grace Dorrington and Eleanor Scutt both couples winning their 6 Lap Parlouf and finally the Yr6 Boys plus Year 6 Girls winning their 4 x 1 Lap Relays.
This meant that we finished in third place, Bronze position, beaten only by two enormous schools, with Chesswood coming out on top. Congratulations must go to all who took part and who made this a truly wonderful occassion.
