Sports Day 2017

6th July 2017

In the glorious sunshine students competed in some of the best competitions CCGS has ever seen. Day one saw Lily Murray breaking two records for 7TSg, the Shot and the Discus. Being a national level athlete we expect she may well continue to break throwing records for the next few years too. There were no other records broken on day one showing how strong the records are. Notable performances were Ethan Regelous who beat Harry Clemo who was the record holder from the previous year. Grace Ward continued to shine too winning both the Shot and Discus, meaning she has won both of those for two years running now.

Day two for the track events saw even warmer weather and a huge array of sporting talent. Ally Kinloch broke the only boys record of the whole event, breaking the 44 year old 1500m senior record in a blistering 4minutes and 10seconds. A special mention must also go to Jason Russel in year 8 who won the 1500m as well as the 100m showing his athleticism across the longest and shortest distances at sports day. Across the school there were 7 new girls track records. In year 7 Grace Flynn equalled the 100m record in 14.09seconds, also in the lower school, Jess Booth broke the year 8 200m record in 29.03seconds. Determined not to be outdone, her older sister Katrina won the year 10 300m in 46.42seconds breaking a record previously set in 1999. Lily Jewell continued transferring her swimming talents to the athletics track and broke another record in the year 9 1500m in 5minutes and 31seconds, meaning she now holds both year 8 and year 9 records. The senior Rothschild-Pearce girls team broke the 4x100m relay record in 61.35 in the final event of the day. A star of the show was year 11 Paris Gasson who returned after her GCSE’s were finished to break the multi-event record and the senior 300m record.

As always I would like to thank all those who took part and those who spectated and supported their teams. It was a very successful event and we will look to make it even better again next year.

The overall results were as follows:

1st RP                                        2nd MS                                                      3rd TS                                        4th KH
