District Athletics Championships
The Prince of Wales Stadium in Cheltenham saw the annual Athletics District Championships earlier in the month.
Around 70 students from Years 7-10 were selected as a result of athletics in lessons, and from Athletics Club as the best student in the discipline
Big congratulations go out to all of the students chosen to represent Archway at the prestigious event, especially the new District Champions -
Y7 Shot Putt: Rosie Curtis
Y7 Javelin: Lottie Holden
Y8 Shot Putt: Mason Le-Vance
Y8 Discus: Mason Le-Vance
Y8 Long Jump: Ollie Williams
Y9 100m: Tom Smart
Y9 800m metres: Orla Brachi
A number of athletics records from the last decade have already fallen over the course of the summer, and hopefully more will follow after sports day. I must give a huge shout out to Rosie Curtis in Year 7 who has successfully won at two district events and thrown a Shot Putt record of 8m 46cm, smashing the all time Archway and district record by 74cm, held since 1977. An out-standing performance.
