English Schools Athletics Cup

Having qualified from the County round of the English Schools Athletics Cup, the Sponne junior girls, Yr 7 and Yr 8 combined took part in the Midland B final for those schools finishing 9 th to 16 th in the Midlands based on points score. The standard of athletics was extremely high but the girls held their own in terms of both attainment and technique. Lily Riding was the outstanding point scorer, winning both her javelin and hurdles events. This is a team event, however, and all girls contributed to an outstanding performance, which saw Sponne eventually finish in third position.

Sponne s junior boys team has some outstanding athletes who have been working hard all year. They won the County round of the English Schools Cup and travelled to Nuneaton to compete against the seven other strongest schools in the Midlands. From the outset of the match, it was clear that there were outstanding athletes in all events. For Sponne, Kavi Sidhu, Moyo Stumpenhusen and LeShawn Henry all excelled with individual victories but all athletes contributed. The match was extremely tight and the result saw Sponne finish in fourth position – fourth in the Midlands – the best ever position by a boys team at Sponne – well done to all those that took part.
