Witney Partnership Year 3/4 Quad Kids

Witney Partnership Year 3 / 4 Quad Kids

The lower juniors headed off to Wood Green School to defend our Quad Kid Athletics trophy, won the previous year, against ten other schools from the partnership.

Competing in a 50m sprint, 400m run, long jump and vortex howler throw, points were earned for distance and times, then combined to make a team total.

The Batt started with the throw and with an impressive throw of 27 metres by James, and two more twenty plus metre throws, the tone was set. Next the Batt children went on to the 50m sprint and with many tight finishes it was always going to be hard to tell who was on top. Then followed the standing long jump and competing alongside The Blake we could see that this was their best event with one of their girls hitting two metres whilst Jasmine jumped an excellent 1.7m for us. The final event was the lung busting 400m and The Batt pushed hard with many top five finishes including a one-two placed finish from Jasmine and Macy.

Just before the points were totalled it was announced that only 5 children out of 120 had hit the medal standard for Quad Kids points, one of them being The Batt’s Jasmine who achieved Bronze status. In the end with a score of 1661 to 1623 The Batt were pipped into second place by The Blake, however both teams qualify for the West Finals next month.

Congratulations to all involved in a great tournament
