Sheffield City Athletics Finals

posted 24 Jun 2016, 07:30 by J Tee

On Thursday 23rd June, ten Year 5 and 6 children who had previously qualified for the Sheffield City athletics finals took part in a well organised and enthralling evening of athletics. The standard was extremely high but all the Stocksbridge Junior School athletes challenged for the top spots and gave their all. Adam won his heat and finished the 5th best 800 meter runner in Sheffield with an amazing time of 2 minute 42 seconds. Zak came 5th in a hard fought race with a time of 1 minute 57 seconds. Isabel E won her 60 meter heat, Isabelle C came 6th in her 600m final, James finished 6th in his heat and Ryan performed admirably to finish 7th in his heat of the race walk. Charlotte threw 26 metres in her ball throw and our four year 6 relay runners of Catherine, Thomas, Isabel and James won their heat but had to retire out of the final due to injury. A big thank you to Mr Casey and Mrs Hirst for their help on the evening and thank you for the support from all our attending parents.
