Medals galore for school athletes

Wednesday 16 May 2018

Our athletes had a stellar Yorkshire County Athletics Track and Field Championship, scooping a raft of medals, podium places and personal bests.

Competing at the Dorothy Hyman Stadium in Cudworth, Sammy Baker-Jones (U6) won Gold in the Junior Women’s Javelin with a personal best of 29.24m and a Bronze in the Junior Women's 400m Hurdles with another personal best of 47.90 seconds, knocking 1.7 seconds off her previous best time.

The Hutchinson family were also in action at the championships and had notable success. Eve (L6) ran in the Junior Women’s 400m and 800m and claimed a Silver medal in both races. Jack (Y10) ran in the U17 Boys 800m and finished 3rd, just shy of 2nd place, as well as the U17 Boys 400m, where he narrowly missed out on a podium place finishing 4th. Emily (Y8) achieved personal bests in the U15 Girls 300m and U15 Girls Discus.
