Quad Athletics

8th June 2017
Quad Athletics competition.
On Thursday 8th June, after school, Mrs Baker took a squad of aspiring athletes to Cambridge University athletics track in Wilberforce Road Cambridge. Yann, Antonia, Lucas, Emily, Maddie, Olivia, Holly, Edward, William and Leo had to compete in four events: a Standing Long ump, a Howler throw, a 600 m run and a 75m sprint. It was a strenuous competition. They were defending the title from last year so the pressure was on!
All the children ran, threw and jumped their best amidst children from much larger schools. It was inspiring and a bit scary seeing the other children compete too.
At the end of the competition the atmosphere was electric as we waited...and waited. Then came the announcement that the results would be revealed ...tomorrow!  As Antonia, team captain, went up to collect certificates she was told that Coton was in the top three.
 
The next morning, Claire McDonnell, the South Cambs manager came to give the results... we were the runners up and therefore go forward to the Level 3 athletics competition in St Ives on Thursday 29th June! Olivia came the 3rd best girl overall all schools - so a huge congratulations go to her.
 
Well done team-a great result!
