Great Sportsmanship from Years 7 and 8 at IoW School Athletics Championships

On Tuesday 7th May we took 36 students across years 7 & 8 to compete in the IOW Schools Athletics Championships held at The Ray Scovell athletics track in Sandown.

They competed against eight other secondary schools in track and field disciplines.

Both year groups competed exceptionally well, especially with some who have never competed or tried some events before. They work really well within their own teams and put all efforts in to gain points.

  • The year 7 girls gained an excellent 3rd place overall.
  • The year 7 boys narrowly missed out on 3rd place and gained 4th overall.
  • The year 8 girls gained and excellent 3rd place overall.
  • The year 8 boys also gained us 3rd place.

With all the points combined across years 7 & 8 this gave us a strong 3rd place position overall. This was a huge achievement for both year groups.

The students behaved amazing and showed great sportsmanship by cheering on their peers and helped encourage each other. This was lovely to watch.

Special thanks goes to Cowes Enterprise College’s P.E. teamwho hosted the event alongside The Bay. The academy also thanks staff from across all secondary schools for helping the day run so smoothly. We also give our thanks to the volunteers from the IOW Athletics club for giving up their time to help run many field events, without them this event could not take place.

We are grateful to our amazing 6th former Eadie S who came to help sort medals, helped run the team and ran around collecting results. We really appreciated your help.

Well done to all the students who competed.
