Sports Day 2015

2nd July 2015

The sun shone down over the school for two gloriously warm days whilst the annual Sports Day events took place. Continuing on from last year5s success of having other subjects contribute with their own competitions, Maths, Food Tec, Music and MFL all gave students who were not competing a chance to get fully involved in the event.

Day one saw the field events and it did not take long for the records to start to fall with the only boys record falling over the two days going to Harry Clemo who through a Javelin 33.55 metres to win the year 8 competition.  Also in the year 8 Javelin, Ellie Rush beat the girls record with a throw of 23.70m,  meaning she now holds both year 7 and 8 records! Kiera Clarke won the Discus again but could only break the record in the Shot with an 8.30m throw. Diana Adegoke in year 12 saw her long jump score of 4.73m equal the current record which we hope she will come back next year to try and beat so she can hold it on her own! The other record to fall on day one was high flying athlete Bea Lever of year 10 who stole the show last year and continued in the same vain achieving a triple jump record of 8.60m.

Three separate year 9 girls broke records on day two when the athletes started their track events. Mia Harrison smashed the 200m record in 27.69 seconds. Also in Knight-Heath was Esther Laffey who holds the year 8 800m record, as she run the 1500m in 5.43 to take yet another record. The multi-event record was also broken by Paris Gasson, she scored very highly in all 4 disciplines and has set the bar very high with 241pts which will be very hard for anyone to try and beat in the future. Bea Lever finished the day with another couple of records in both the 800m and 1500m, which she did almost back to back with times of 2.45mins and 5.36mins respectively.

The turnout for students was excellent and all year groups competed to a very high level. Well done to all athletes and the spectators who watched in an excellent spirit throughout.

The overall results were as follows:

1st RP

2nd KH

3rd MS

4th TS
