Witham Hall to the Southern Area Championships

20 Jun 2016

Witham were one of 30 schools to compete at Cambridge University’s Athletics Stadium in the Regional Athletics Championships. With thunder storms predicted, Witham arrived prepared for the rain but were greeted by a slightly more optimistic sky. All of the children were a credit to the school throughout the day, doing their very best in each event, and patiently waiting in between.

Each event had almost 30 competitors, meaning that top spots were fiercely fought for. Fantastically Oscar took the Regional title for Long Jump and broke the school record! Gigi and Daisy also did incredibly well to make it through the tough heats, and into the finals!

Well done team Witham and thank you very much to Mrs Morgan-Jones and Miss Robinson for their help on the day.
