Strong Performances at First Round of ESAA

The English Schools Track and Field Cup teams attended the first round of this national competition at Guildford Spectrum athletics track last week. The competition limits each competitor to one track and one field event per athlete in order to find the best all-round team in the country. Competitors are awarded points based on times and distances achieved for the various athletic disciplines.

The top points scorers for the Junior Boys were Rehan Y with 30 points, Arthur P with 33 points and Edwin K an impressive 41 points. The boys scored 309 points in total and we wait to hear whether this will be enough to qualify for the regional final.

The Junior Girls had strong performances from Elise T amassing 34 points from the 300m and the High Jump; with Marusia E and Emma F both contributing well with 29 points each.  The team came sixth out of 14 other schools in the points total with 275.

Huge contributions were made by Tom B with 37 points, Ollie P with 38 points, Ethan V H, and Ryen R with 39 points, top scorer on the day was Freddie A with 42 points. Ethan broke the Inter boys 300m school record with a time of 39:60 and Ryen broke the Junior boys 300m school record with a time of 37.74.

The Inter Girls team didn’t disappoint with a mammoth total of 398 points finishing third on the day. Impressive contributions from Isla C with 33 points, Ava W with 35 points for the 200m and Discus. Lilly W with 38 points equaling the inter girls school record for the High Jump with a leap of 1.41m. Colossal scores from Isabelle S Y with 41 points but the biggest contribution for the day came from Estee N with scoring 29 points from her 1500m and 17 from her shot put giving her a haul of 46 points!
