On Thursday afternoon, our Year 5/6 Athletics team competed in the final heat of the Nottingham City Primary Sportshall Athletics Competition at Oakwood Academy.
After braving the wind and rain, the team took part in twelve races and two rounds of field events.
Up against some very strong competition, the team secured second place with 256 points, just missing out on the top spot, to last year's silver medallists Old Basford.
In EVERY race, both boys and girls finished in the top 3! A truly remarkable achievement. Some magnificent running and athleticism was on show, particularly from Frankie Power from Super Cedars, winning the gruelling 6 lap race with Morgan Shepherd from Marvellous Maples.
A special mention goes to Pharen Boulter Davis and Lily Hunter from
Outstanding Oaks who were competing against children 2 and 3 years older! Their commitment and application was fantastic.
We now look forward to the semi-final taking place at Harvey Hadden Sports Village on Wednesday 27th November.
