Senior School Sports Day 2014

On a gloriously sunny Friday, the senior school got together to demonstrate their sporting prowess in front of a packed stand of spectators at Rockingham Triangle. Although it may have been Friday the 13th, the day was very lucky for some!

Seahorses claimed the top spot, scoring 436 points; while Tadpoles beat out the Minnows to sneak second place – their total of 408 just edging them past the Minnows’ respectable 384. The Sticklebacks brought up the rear with 326 points scored.

Year 6 Champion Girl was a joint affair this year, with Antonia V and Eleanor B sharing the honour. Finley F’s wins in the 80m, 150m, and the High Jump secured his place as Year 6 Champion Boy.

Victrix Ludorem went to Jemima P for her stellar performances in the 100m, Long Jump, High Jump, and 200m. Victor Ludorem went to an unsurprised Harry M, who won all five of his events: 100m, 200m, Long Jump, High Jump, and Javelin.

It was a fantastic and thrilling day, with records falling left right and centre.
