The year 9 school record for the Shot Putt has been held since 2008 by Niomi Kioma. Niomi threw the Shot Putt an amazing distance of 9.18 m. However this has been broken by Margaret Ogunkoya (9K) who threw an incredible 9.80 M. This is a fantastic achievement by Margaret.  

We have introduced throwing a rounders ball into our athletics programme this year. Therefore we needed to set a new school record. Oliwia Luciow kick started the school record with a fantastic 28 m. However, this was short lived as Ingrid Nyarumwe joined the competition and set 31.30 M as the new record. Not wanting to be left out, Katie Hooks then joined the celebrations and threw the rounders ball an incredible 36.25 M creating the new school record. This is an amazing achievement and will probably be held for many years to come.

Finally, Frances Parker represented Bradford Schools Athletics Championships last Wednesday in the long jump event. There were 11 competitors in total from a range of schools such as Woodhouse Grove, Bradford Grammar School, Ilkley Grammar School and Beckfoot. Frances jumped 4.13m landing her in 2nd place overall and only 2cm behind the eventual winner. This fantastic achievement means that Frances has been selected for the West Yorkshire School Championships to be held in June.
