Success for girls at District Sports 2019
The girls this year surpassed themselves across all year groups at District Sports. This is due to the amount of hard work they have put in, at lunchtime and afterschool clubs. It was brilliant to see some new faces who hadn’t represented the school this year absolutely smashing it at the District Sports. Overall the girls came an impressive 4th out of 13 schools. With Chelmsford being one of the toughest areas to compete in, this shows the level that our athletes were performing at. The Year 7 girls came a respectable 8th position which is a very positive start to their athletics careers. Year 8 girls narrowly missed out on 4th position by 1 point and the Year 10 girls were placed 7th for their last District sports.
The Year 9 girls defied the odds and secured a comfortable 1st place victory with an 8 point lead. The whole team worked together with every girl gaining at least a 3rd position in an event. And they managed to retain their relay champions title for the third consecutive year!
Special mention goes to the following girls who secured 1st place positions making them District Champions, Kissi Mensah– Relay,200m-25.78, (New District Record), Abi Ketley- Hurdles13.31, Apentenmaa Mensah– 300m 46.56. Louise Filmer, Amber Driscoll and Edie Walton– Relay.
