Athletics 2017

The short Senior athletics season came to a very successful climax on Saturday 13 May, with the Senior Boys and Girls and the Intermediate Boys and Girls teams winning their final fixture of the season away at Canford School, beating Canford, Sherborne, Clayesmore and Milton Abbey.

The season started brilliantly when the Senior & Inter Girls teams travelled to Marlborough College and both came away winning the competition, having beaten Marlborough College, Kingswood, Down House, Bradfield College and St Mary’s Calne.

Next, both the Senior Boys and Girls travelled to the Bryanston Relays to compete against 7 other Schools and once again both teams came away having won overall.

The Senior Boys then travelled to compete in the Lutra Shield at the Yeovil Arena, for the third year in a row the boys came away with the runners up shield, with Millfield winning the event; the boys beat Sherborne, Blundell’s, Wellington, Bryanston, Taunton & Kingswood.

Our next event saw the First, Second and Third Form girls travel to St Mary’s, Calne, with all our teams winning their events.

The Senior teams then went back to Bryanston and won again against 6 other schools, before finishing with the excellent results at Canford. The teams have been led brilliantly by Imogen Davies & Callum Short and in total we have beaten 48 other school athletics teams, with just one defeat to Millfield Senior Boys. After half term we will see plenty of our athletes compete in the County Championships and we hope that many go on to compete in the South West & National Championships. Well done to all those that have competed.
