Athletics Day 2017

Athletics Angus
15th February 2017, what a day to remember! Four houses stepped up to the challenge of facing one another for the ultimate prize ever- bragging rights and of course winning the much-needed house points! Who was to win? McLaren? Angus? Wilkins? Or was it to be three years in a row for Batten?

Angus could taste victory after the 3000m and 1500m participation point run but that wasn’t enough to stop the dedication and participation put in by all athletes. Runners ran fast, jumpers flew high, batons were dropped but most importantly, all houses united together to put on a show with some staggering results. The teacher versus student relay was the most impressive. The teachers had been undefeated for two years running, but that all changed this year. They were defeated by the aggressive students who crossed the finish line first with an extraordinary dash to victory. The most important time of the day came as the results were finally released. We sat patiently waiting for Mr Armstrong to announce each category points.
