Competition: Royal Hospital School, Woodbridge, Gresham’s, Woodbridge, Ipswich High School, Ipswich school and Brandeston prep
A good all round display for the first athletics match of the season, with the Year 7 girls competing for the very first time and coming 4th. There were good performances from Molly Entwistle who won the hurdles and Charlotte Stenning who won the 300m.
The Year 8 team came 2nd by just 3 points to a strong Grehsam’s side. Libby Parker ran close to a School Record in the 300m and Annie Tavianavesi and Mille Salter won the shot and javelin respectively.
The highlight for the Year 9 team was a superb effort from Jorgyella Thorpe. She threw a new School Record of 9.72m to win the shot. However, the team struggled and came 5th on the day.
Year 10 flew the flag for RHS winning the event by 7 points over Ipswich School. Sophie Rennison won both her hurdles and high jump and Lucy Watson won the long jump. The team had a storming win in the `A` relay to finish off a great start to the season.
