This afternoon saw a team of 21 children take part in the Sportshall Athletics Tournament at Thomas Mills High School. The children initially took part in field events (vertical jump, chest push, foam javelin, standing long jump, speed bounce and standing triple jump) and at the end of those events we found ourselves in 4th place.
Looking to build on this a 'pep' talk was given before the running events of the competition. A simply tremendous display saw us finish highly positioned in the majority of the races. Would it be enough to get into the medal positions? YES! When the points were added up Earl Soham finished in a splendid second (alliteration) place.
Personally I have to say that this wonderful bunch of children, superbly supported from the balcony, thoroughly deserved their stylish medals for their efforts and attitude. Their team ethic was brilliant as every point gained was vital. Thank you.
Apologies for poor picture quality - the children move too fast!
