Narrow defeat at Area Finals

posted 16 Dec 2013, 13:22 by Lindsay Taylor
After winning their heats at Ecclesfield High School; our year5/6 athletics team travelled to the area finals in High Spirits. It quickly became apparent that we were up against tough opposition with much more training behind them. Teamwork and resilience were definitely needed as we rallied our troops - we were certainly the most vocal school there that day ( all that singing practice had really paid off). We managed to win some races, and come a close second in a few too, but the final result was not in our favour. Unfortunately we will not be progressing through to the next round.
A big ‘congratulations’ does go to Charlie though, who won Sheffield Wednesday tickets in the raffle at the end (pity he’s a United fan).
All in all a great sporting night was had by all. The children displayed fantastic behaviour and sportsmanship throughout. True St. Mary’s children, Well done!
