Sportshall Athletics County Final

Sportshall Athletics County Final

Last Monday our Witney and West Oxfordshire winning Sportshall Athletics team headed off to The Leys Pool and Leisure Centre, in Oxford, to try and defend the county trophy they had won the previous year.

They were competing in a number of track and field disciplines which included relays, obstacle runs, various jumps and throws against nine other of the best schools in the county. The Batt started off knowing that the standard of competition had improved since the previous year, however with Will and Dylan winning in the six lap parlauuf and Emily setting herself a new record in standing triple jump, they did well.

After all the points had been totalled across the board, The Batt ended up only just outside the medals in fourth place this year but had given their all for the cause.

Well done to all our indoor athletics team and we look forward to reaching this stage again next year.
