On Wednesday 10th January, the annual Sports Hall Athletics competition took place at Saltash.net. In the morning, our 3/4 team took part in a series of running, jumping and throwing events and put on a fabulous determined performance. Special mention should go to Bethany H, who threw an incredible 8 metres in the soft javelin. After a tense morning of competition, the results were in and St Stephens finished in a very credible 4th place.
The afternoon saw our team of 5/6 children competing in similar events and again we were very impressed with their magnificent sporting prowess. Particular mention should be made of Grace T, who stepped in at the very last minute and was definitely an asset to our team and Deacon T whose incredible standing long jump of over 2 metres was the longest of the day.
Nervously we waited for the results and I am delighted to tell you that out of the 6 teams that competed, St Stephens finished in 1st place and now have the great honour of representing the whole of East Cornwall at the finals in Truro, in April. Huge congratulations to all of the children that took part, we are very proud of you all.
