PE (continued)

West Wilts Schools Rounders Tournament and put on a good show. They beat Melksham Oak and finished 5th out of 7 despite one of our players having a nasty injury and another suffering with Asthma. The Year 9 team was more autonomous this year and took responsibility for organising and arranging their own team.


The squad this year featured many familiar faces and some old faces too. With a core squad of 7 or 8 it was nice to see students like Ellen Stefanofski, Lucy Hubbard and Mya Fasko featuring in the team again, along with Anna-Rose Darmon and Grace Hime. The girls had their first fixture of the summer team against St Augustines with a very strong performance – during one round of batting every single batter scored a rounder on their go. We left victorious after superb batting and precise fielding. Unfortunately, bad weather struck the rest of our fixtures except for the West Wilts Schools Tournament. We went with a strong side of 12 and came up against some fierce opposition. We fell at the first hurdle –St Laurence, although we knew we could have put out a better performance. The rest of the games seemed to follow suit with the exception of 2 games. The girls fielding was exceptional throughout the tournament, we just needed a few more Rounders to seal our fate. We did not qualify to the next round but that was not a reflection the excellent skills, attitude and team cohesion that was on show throughout. The girls showed excellent sportsmanship and did the school proud.


out performances were Lewis Applegate winning the hurdles and both Jack Gilroy and Lauren O’Connor winning the high Jump even though he finished the competition injured.

The Year 8 and 9 trial and 10/11 trial allowed a handful of students to achieve West Wilts selection, Dan Jones in the high jump, Cameron Law in the triple jump and Hayden Bailey in the 800m and 400m. Hayden qualified to represent West Wilts at the South West Athletics Championships in Exeter by winning both the 800m and 400m. Dan finished second in a competitive field with the winner jumping a new English Schools record. Hayden retained his title as South West Champion in Exeter in June and now is preparing for the National Championships.

At area athletics held at Bath University we had a mixed day with many students succeeding achieving personal best times and distances. With the

The Year 7 teams attended both the West Wilts trial and the Super 8s competition. The trial saw a number of students compete in athletics for the first, and although nobody qualified to represent West Wilts at the County Championships, we had a number of PB’s. This put us in good stead for the Super 8s competition held at St Laurence school, with the both the boys and girls teams finishing 4th, the boys scoring 628 points, 30 points behind St Laurence in first place. Stand

temperature soring, students competed to the best of their abilities. The Year 10 girls were the stand out team performance finishing 3rd overall. Individual performances memorable from the day were Codi Manders 3rd in the high jump and 2nd in the 300m, Aaron Doughty 3rd in the high jump, Ella Pearce 3rd in the long jump, Mackenzie Marshman, 3rd in both the 200m and 300m, Jack Gilroy 3rd in the high jump and Todd Pearce 2nd in the cricket ball throw.
