Year 7/8 Athletics

Miss Kelly with this competition report:

“On Wednesday a team of girls and boys from Year 7 and 8 competed in the Trafford Sports Hall Athletics Competition, held at Lostock.  Wellington had four strong teams, who set the standard from the first event, the 4×1, all finishing in first or second place.  Wellington continued to dominate in the girl’s track events, with outstanding performances from Abbie Greaves, Jess Molloy, Grace Edmundson and Nancy Pickles.  As the boys took to the track, our success continued, with all athletes again, winning or coming a close second. Toby Andrews, Freddie Marston, Jack Cummins and Henry Shaw had a fantastic afternoon in both track and field events.  Wellington students had further success in their field events with Tilly Doohan, Hannah Myers and Taleesha Mason measuring great distances.  Jess Molloy was unstoppable for the Year 8 girls in the triple jump, jumping that far that she jumped off the mat so no measurement could be taken.

The finale event secured a double 1st place win for the Year 7 and 8 girls and 2nd place for both the Year 7 and 8 boys.

Well done to all students who competed, they were excellent in both their events and their behaviour.”
