Maidstone Sportshall Athletics Competition Success
Mrs Smart, Teacher of PE sent us this report:
On Tuesday we took 4 teams of athletes from Year 7 and 8 to the area Sportshall Athletics Competition at Mote Park. Students have been working on their skills during lessons and at our lunchtime club since September and this was clearly reflected in their performances. In both age groups we had two teams competing in a variety of events including sprints, relays, jumps, speed bounce and shot putt. Invicta had some amazing results, winning all but one event and taking second place as well in a number of them.
Overall the teams were placed 1st and 2nd in each age group and have now qualified for the Kent Finals to be held in February. They are continuing to train in preparation for this and we are hoping for a good result. The lunchtime club is open to any students who wish to try the sport or try and improve, it is also good preparation for the summer athletics”.
Thank you to Mrs Smart and the PE Department for all their hard work supporting the teams.
