East Area Senior Regional Athletics Championships

15 Jun 2017

To top off a busy exam week, our senior athletics team headed to Bedford International Athletics Stadium for their Regional Championships, organised by Greshams. All of our athletes represented the school fantastically throughout the day, despite some of our competitors waiting nearly 8 hours for their event!

The team were breaking Personal Bests and School Records left right and centre, with Sophie maintaining her Nationals streak and qualifying once again in both Discus and Javelin giving her the opportunity to defend her National Champion Discus title in July. Jemima also won herself a place in the Nationals in a nail-biting High Jump competition, achieving her PB when under pressure.

Mr Gent, Mr O’Conner and I could not have been prouder of our Witham Hall athletes throughout the day. Many thanks to our parental support team on the day, and best of luck to Sophie and Jemima who compete in Birmingham on 4th July. All of their wonderful results are displayed below:
