The Sports Hall Athletics Area finals were held at Greenford High School earlier today where the 4 top schools in the Ealing and Southall area were competing for a chance to go to Crystal Palace and Nationals. We were up against 3 other very good schools in Little Ealing, St. Vincent's and Gifford. The format of today's competition was the same as the previous one with children competing across track and field events and track relays, all in the warmth of a sports hall. The Fielding team worked hard today but unfortunately we didn't do as well as we would have liked to as we finished in 4th place. Still, a big well done to the SHA team for getting to the area finals and claiming 4th best in the area.
Today Fielding took a team of 6 boys and 6 girls to Featherstone High School for a Sports Hall Athletics competition. Events to be competed included standing long and triple jump, speed bounce and indoor javelin as well as selection of relays. Our team has been working hard on Wednesday mornings training for these events so even though it was the first time we have competed at this competition we were hoping to do well.
We are still waiting for a list of full results for each event but we appeared to do quite well in a lot of the events. At the end of the day, after 12 events we were waiting to hear the results and were very pleased to learn that we had finished in 3rd place and earned ourselves another batch of bronze medals. To add to the excitement we also found out that our strong performance today has earned us another opportunity to compete on a regional level in the SHA regional games in the new year.
Well done team, another example of hard work paying off!!
