Sports hall Athletics @ Bishop Challenor Catholic Sports College

As part of our continuing link with Baverstock School Sports Partnership, 7 of our lower school boys were selected to represent the school in a Sportshall Athletics event hosted at Bishop Challoner Catholic Sports College.

The pupils competed against six main stream schools in the Baverstock borough including, Wheelers lane, Kings Norton Boys and Bishop Challoner. The boys’ behaviour was excellent and continued to meet our high expectations of behaviour offsite. They all did their bit to uphold our current offsite behaviour record and help develop our reputation with other local schools. 

The pupils were allocated two track events and one field event and each needed to perform to the best of their ability to be successful. Reuben Johnson Simms, Miles Kelly, Jaimique Malone Meade, Dalarno Clarke, Tyrelle Lawrence, Blake May and Rashuan Blake were the pupils involved and each of the boys did themselves and the school very proud. Many of the boys in year 7 competed against boys in Year 8 so their achievement is even more exceptional and impressive. The "stand out" performance of the night was the 4 x 2 lap relay race, which was highly contested by all schools and unfortunately Lindsworth only just missed out on a podium spot.

The boys were a little apprehensive to get involved in a warm up with other schools in such a large venue. However with encouragement from a few key members the group got involved in warming up with the other schools. As soon as the competition began the boys were ready to start competing and by the end of the event the pupils had given their all so eagerly listened to hear the final standings. They were extremely pleased to hear that they finished 3rd  in their area but just missed out on securing a place in the national finals?????

The boys were a credit to the school and all staff involved are extremely proud of their achievements. Well done to all the boys, and hopefully this success can be accredited to continued involvement in future events and potential achievements.
