by / Tuesday, 30 June 2015 / Published in Latest News

On Wednesday 24th June, the Year 5/6 Quad Kids Athletics Squad travelled to Plymouth Brickfields Athletics track to participate in the Devon Summer 2015 Games. The Quad Kids event consisted of a 75m sprint, 600m long distance run, standing long jump and a Vortex throw.  The children had already been crowned Torbay Champions,  and were looking forward to the chance of retaining last year’s crown of Devon Champions, and adding to their earlier County Indoor Athletics Championship.

The squad participated in Great Spirit and worked very hard as a team; cheering each other on during their races. During the ceremony, Sherwell Valley were announced as Devon Champions, picking up a gold medal for their success.  In addition to this, Louis was named as the overall 1st ranked athlete out of the 96 children who participated – and another 4 of the team were ranked in the top twenty.   Mr Briant and the school are really proud of the team.

Squad: Georgia, Grace, Ellie, Emma, Charlie, Jake, Louis and Ollie.
