Tournament Result – Monday 27th November – Y5/6 Sportshall Athletics Semi Finals
As reward for finishing second in our Sportshall Athletics heats (back in early November), we were invited to compete in the next round of qualifiers, held at Harvey Hadden Sports Village.
Unfortunately, the date of the semi-finals we were entered into happened to be the same date that all our Year 6s were on a school trip… However, in true Whitemoor spirit, we still decided to take part – picking extra children from Year 5 and even some Year 4s!
Over the course of the afternoon, our newly formed team tried extremely hard and did not let the fact they were facing predominately Year 6 children worry them in the slightest. Some of our athletes even won their events!
After the six track and six field events have been completed, boys' and girls' scores were combined to give each school a grand total. Despite Whitemoor finishing with nearly 300 points, we only managed to finish in fifth position and so did not make it to the grand finals. All our Year 5 children (and our two Year 4 children) should be very proud of their efforts though!
Today's much changed Athletics team were: Hugo K, Kyan N, Rajan S, Natijah L, Dominic A, Shalom-Chris O, Travae R, Tyler C, Peter S, Tyrai W, Finnley G, Dijourn M, Christine S, Shruti A, Zakiah R, Glennisha B, Jaylah C, Mariah-Lace A, Inez W, Tayah P, Ruby-Lea M, Farrah M, Aliny T and Italee P.
