On Saturday, Kingswood’s athletes returned to Marlborough College and competed against Harrow, Stowe, Bradfield, Cheltenham College, Abingdon, Portsmouth Grammar, St Benedict’s and Haileybury. The Girls had a very productive day with the Senior team, made up of Miya, Tosin, Toyosi and Lizzie all recording podium places in their events. Jasmine and Miya both finished in the top two places in the 100m and Georgia had a great day winning both the 800m and 300m. The Junior Girls fielded two young teams who all thoroughly enjoyed themselves and a number of Personal Bests were recorded. The Junior and Inter Boys teams battled honourably against the high standard of competition, missing a number of athletes due to Duke of Edinburgh. Liam ran a new Personal Best in the 100m in a time of 11.9 seconds whilst Kingswood’s Junior Relay team put in another impressive performance. Three girls also travelled to Exeter to compete for Avon in the Regional Athletics Championships and one of them is currently waiting to find out if she made national selection. Alice, a Year 8 pupil, competed against Year 9s in the Junior Girls and had a fantastic day. Alice deserves our congratulations as she broke two school records – she came 3rd in the Long Jump with a distance of 5.41m, breaking a record which had stood since 1995. She also won the Hurdles, which is a new event for her this year, with a time of 11.54 seconds, breaking the school record.
