Our Year 8 boys took part in the County Indoor Athletics Finals on Monday 22nd February, putting in an impressive effort in a difficult competition.

The boys had easily won the Crawley area competition but knew they had more of a battle on their hands in the County Final.

The running events saw some close races throughout with very few top 5 finishes for St Wilfrids despite the clear efforts from Adam, Louis, Danny, Billy, Ben and Cameron.  The team shone in the field events with Louis taking the title of Speed Bouncing with an impressice 72 in 30 seconds whilst Billy threw 9.5 metres on the shot put closely followed by William with 8.6m. William also jumped over 6m in the standing triple jump whilst Billy and Cameron both jumped over 2m in the standing long jump.

Overall the St Wilfrid’s came 5th out of 9 teams but in actual fact is was a very tight competition with Forest and Bishop Luffa deserved  1st and 2nd.

1st Forest 231
2nd Bishop Luffa 228
