College Sports Day 2011

Sports day 2011

On Monday 4th July St Mary’s College held their annual sports day at the sports centre in Bassett.  The weather for once was on our side and made it a very warm and memorable occasion; apart from those students competing in events in excess of 400m!  All students participated in at least one event, with many competing in two track, two field and the relay.  There were numerous personal best times and distances with the following students beating previous College records:

Dylan Kirkwood – 26.72 (Javelin) – Year 7

Will Hughes – 23.01 (Discus) – Year 7

Sunil Pallikadavath – 16.62 (Discus) – Year 8

Abigail Hatton – 2.05 (600m) – Year 8

Emily Bulkeley – 5.87 (Shot) – Year 8

Aimee Kerens – 12.42 (Discus) – Year 8

Laura Lister – 8.88 (Discus) – Year 9

Many of the staff officiating were thoroughly enjoying basking in the sun content with their roles.  However, this was proven to be rather short lived when they remembered the final relay race which they were soon to be involved in – taking on the student houses.  There was no need to worry though, as one of the staff team finished 1st with their nearest rival finishing over 20m behind.  Obviously, they felt a little bad, so their other team slowed down accordingly allowing the three houses to overtake to finish last.  A valuable lesson was learnt by all, be humble in victory and gracious in defeat.

Congratulations to the overall winning house St George’s, with St Patricks’ finishing 6 points behind in second, and St Michael’s only a further 2 points back.
