District Athletics Results

Over forty Ely College students represented the school at the Annual District Athletics Championships in King's Lynn last week.

Our students from Years 7 to 10, who competed in a full range of Olympic athletic events, performed magnificently; showing their talent and determimnation as they battled it out with pupils from Witchford Village College, Neale Wade Academy and Cromwell Community College,  King’s Ely, Thomas Clarkson and Wisbech Grammar.

Ely College athletes performed superbly on the day and we want to thank them for their hard work. We have traditionally managed to field a strong and full team and whilst this year saw us take more competitors than ever, it was disappointing to have a number of our most talented athletes drop out on the day.

This said a final 4th place finish behind the two private schools in the Isle and Witchford did not leave us too disappointed. Missing out on the plate to Witchford for the first time in three years hurt, but we are hungry for next year and have our eyes on the prize!

Special mention for standout performances and winners must go to:

Year 7 David Horn 1st Javelin

Year 7 Tegan Bowen 1st Shot Putt

Year 7 Thomas Martin 1st Shot Putt

Year 8 Lucy Wittaker 2nd Hurdles and Long Jump

Year 8 Hayden Jones 1st in the Javelin

Year 8 Kian Smith 2nd in the High Jump

Year 8 Henry Olley 2nd in 800m
