County Athletics Combined Events

K. Swanson, G. Thomas (Year 8), L. Morton, B. Brumpton and C. Malone all competed in the County Combined events competition on Wednesday 21st May 2008 in the Junior Girls and Junior Boys category. Athletes had an early start and competed in 5 events throughout the day – Hurdles, High Jump, Long Jump, Putting the Shot and finished with a gruelling 800m race. Each athlete was new to this event and performed extremely well against some tough competition, including some of England’s best Combined Event Athletes. With each event scoring points, L Morton and G Thomas finished in a very respectable 16 and 17th position respectively out of 27 with 1295 and 1326 points. G Thomas did exceedingly well considering she was against pupils 1 year older. K. Swanson had a superb day and finished 5th in the County and goes through as Reserve in the regional Finals in June with 1843 points. The boys performed to their best and again C Malone finished in 16th position and B Brumpton in 15th out of 26, Bradley just pipped Connor with 1533 points to Connor’s 1513.
