Sports Report - Yr7 and Yr8 Sportshall Athletics
Yesterday teams, already Sedgemoor champions, travelled to Millfield for the rearranged County Sportshall athletics finals. The registration hall was busy and all got enthusiastically involved in the 'YMCA ' warm up before settling down to the business of the day. The Chilton squads were amazing- they warmed up, checked events and event times and we're ready to go. The yr7 girls opened the event competing against 7 other schools from around the county in the 4x2lap obstacle race with Katie Escott bringing the baton across the line in 2nd place . 2lap ,4 lap, 6 lap individual races and 8 lap paarlauf followed for both boys and girls along with field events-shot, long jump, vertical jump,speed bounce and triple jump. The day was completed with 4x2 lap relays where our yr 7 girls finished with a 1st place!!
The results saw the yr 7 girls agonisingly miss out on bronze medals by a couple of points but 4th in the county is nothing to be sneezed at! The yr 7 boys and yr 8 girls had fought hard too with notable performances by Alyssa G and Evan with the team's finishing in 7th place.
A brilliant effort by all and a good start to encourage all to Athletics clubs in the summer term ready to perform at the area athletics trials and championships.
