Bury Schools Indoor Athletics

26th Jan 2018

Tuesday 23rd January saw Wesley compete in the annual Bury Schools Indoor Athletics competition. This is a great event and this year was no exception as 26 schools from all over Bury were taking part.

The athletics team consists of both boys and girls who take part in a variety of relay track events and a wide range of field events, including chest push, javelin, long jump and triple jump. There were some great individual and team performances on the day. Jayden with a great chest push, Imogen launching the javelin and Lois winning the speed bounce event.

Our relay teams were on great form, managing to keep hold of the baton AND stay on our feet the whole time! Mia and Imogen came second in their 2 lap relay, Lois and Freya won their 1 lap relay and the boys 4x 1 lap relay team won the last race of the day!

The target at the beginning of the event was to get into the top 10 and we actually managed to finish in 9th place overall out of the 26 schools that took part. The children behaved brilliantly and cheered each other on throughout the event. Well done to all the boys and girls who took part.
