From the Captain:

On Tuesday we took part in an Inter-Schools Athletics competition at Brookes Cambridge.  There were seven schools that took part.  First up was the 60m hurdles wher Ben won our first gold medal.  Next was the long distance event and German ran a great race kicking on from 80m out and no-one was going to catch him, not even Mo Farah.

In the field events Matthew leapt to victory in the standing triple jump.  Back on the track for the sprints Ben won his second gold in the 60m and I won teh 60m and the 200m.

The last events were the relays and we as a team were determined to do well as double points were awarded.  In the final race of the afternoon the U11 boys relay team won making it 10 gold, 4 silver and 3 bronze.

Well done to the whole team for competing so well on the day.  Thank yout o Mrs Konrath and Mr James and Brookes for hosting the event.
