Abbey Hill students star at Sports Hall Athletics Event
1st December 2016
Abbey Hill attended the first ever Sports Hall Athletics Event ran by 'Smile through Sport' on Tuesday 22nd November at Herlingshaw Football Centre, Eston. 7 boys and 7 girls selected by PE staff from across Years 7, 8 and 9 formed a strong looking team who were very excited to get started! On the morning they took part in 5 field events: Triple Jump, Long Jump, Javelin, Medicine Ball Throw and a Bean Bag Target Throw. On the afternoon they took part in seeded track events which included an individual obstacle course, individual races, twin relays and a whole team relay race.
The students performed exceptionally well throughout the day. The girls team won the track and field events and took the overall gold medals. The boys team also won the field and track events and took the overall gold medals. Students behaviour was fantastic throughout the day and they were a credit to the school! Well done!
