1st place at District Sports

This week is National Sports Week and after our athletic trials, 45 athletes were selected to compete in the St Matthew's Athletics Team, in our District Sports Events.  

On Monday our long jumpers and throwers went to Sandcross School and achieved 1st place in both events, so we went into Wednesday's track events at Reigate Grammar School in the best possible position.  

Our team, captained by Abbie, were focused, enormously supportive to each other and exceptionally well behaved, as mentioned by another local school! Aliu set the scene winning the 1st race and then all that followed were determined to do their best for the team.

Nerves were running high when the results were read out ..... St Matthews achieved 1st place in the District Sports Small Schools Athletic Competition 2014 for both Girls and Boys!

Many thanks to Sandcross for hosting the field events, Reigate Grammar School for hosting the track events and Crawley Luxury for supplying complementary coaches.

Thanks also to Mrs Russell for topping up our long jump training at athletics club and Sarah Rusling for helping out once again.
