We arrived at Aldersley Stadium to take part in the Sports Hall Athletics city final. Having organised our team of 14, we knew it would be difficult to repeat out performance at the area final. Our team was split in half with the girls taking part in the running events first and the boys in the field events. We then swapped over. It was so exciting to watch all the events, especially the running, which all the team enjoyed.
In Sports Hall Athletics, the results are not shown until the end so we were in suspense right until the end. The results were announced and Fallings Park finished in second with St Luke’s finishing first. However, after reviewing the scoresheets, our long jump result was not counted. Therefore, the organisers added the points from the long jump, which meant we were actually joint first with St Luke’s on 212 points. An outstanding achievement for all involved! We have also qualified for the Black Country Games on June 29th. As it was our first time in taking part, it is amazing to have secured victory.
