Leeds City Athletics Competition

This year MSM entered the Leeds City Athletics Competition at Leeds Beckett University. The first meet was on Thursday 8th June, where 31 students competed in a full range of track and field events. After the first meet this is how our teams faired:

Junior Girls (Y7/8) – 4th Junior Boys (Y7/8) – 3rd
Intermediate Girls (Y9/10) – 6th Intermediate Boys (Y9/10) – 5th

In addition to the above results, there were several outstanding individual performances, who all came 1st in their heat:

Fatou – JG 100m A race Abigail – JG Shot put
Yaried – JB 800m JB Relay team

Students returned to Leeds Becket University on 22nd June to compete in the second round of the Leeds City Athletics competition. With the desire and determination to do better, many of the students showed improvements in their times, distances and heights.

As previously, there were some exceptional performances. Well done to the following students who all came 1st in their events:

Abigail – JG Shot put Cristina – JG Discus
Yaried – JB 1500m Nosa – JB High Jump
Ryka – IG 300m

The overall results from the two heats were:

Junior Girls – 4th Junior Boys – 1st
Intermediate Girls – 5th Intermediate Boys – 5th

We are extremely proud of all the students that competed. Many were nervous and pushed out of their comfort zones but came back excited and enthused to train and participate in Athletics outside of school.

A huge congratulations to the Junior Boys team who came 1st in their pool and now qualify for the finals at JCCS on Tuesday 27th June. Good Luck to all the boys who will go on to compete at the finals.
