The ISA Junior athletics meeting has become one of Edenhurst's main summer sporting events. We were one of thirty one teams from across the Midlands taking part at the spectacular Alexander Stadium in Birmingham. It is a fantastic opportunity for the children to experience running on a full-sized circular track, knowing Usain Bolt and Mo Farah recently ran in the same arena really does Inspire them to Achieve. This was also the final time that we will be going to the Alexander Stadium as the event will move next year.
We took a team of eighteen children from the Prep Forms to compete in the following events: 60m, 70m, 80m, 150m sprints, 600m run, relays, high jump, long jump, cricket and rounders ball throwing and shot putt.
Congratulations to all athletes who either did or didn’t make it to the finals- you gave it your all! The first pupil in each final event is selected to go through to the National Finals, congratulations to Jiya B who will represent The Midlands in the U12 150 metre sprint and Daniel I-E who will represent the Midlands in the U10 150 metre sprint.
A fantastic team effort, well done!
