It’s been a fantastic season for the Selwood athletics teams, with almost all of our teams being crowned Champions of Mendip!
On 18 June, Yr 7 and 8 boys and girls teams travelled to Yeovil Athletics Arena along with 13 other schools. All pupils performed exceptionally well and did the Academy and themselves proud. Below are the impressive results.
Yr7 Girls = 1st Selwood; 2nd Wells Blue; 3rd Oakfield
Yr7 Boys = 1st Selwood; 2nd St Dunstans; 3rd Oakfield
Yr 8 Girls = 1st Oakfield; 2nd Selwood; 3rd Wells Blue
Yr 8 Boys = 1st Selwood; 2nd St Duntans; 3rd Oakfield
The Yr 6 athletics teams (Selwood Harriers and Selwood Athletic) have also been busy and brilliant! On Tuesday 25 June, they took part in the Quad Kids Athletics Event. All 8 members of the mixed gender teams have to compete in 4 events: 600m run, 75 meter sprint, vortex throw and a standing long jump. Selwood Harriers finished an impressive 3rd, narrowly missing out on 2nd place by 1 point. Selwood Athletic finish 1st overall and did so by an astonishing 400 points to become the Champions of the Mendip Schools. Well done to them all.
All winning athletics teams will represent the Mendip Schools at the Somerset School Games, where they will battle it out to become County Champions. Good luck to all involved!
