Daisy Burns also broke her own 200m record, running 27.5s - particularly impressive as Daisy was competing for our Sixth Form. She finished 2nd in both the 100m and 200m.
Jenom Nyam (Year 9) continued his impressive form in the 300m, setting a new school record of 41.2s and chasing ever closer his dream of 40s.
Finally, Emily Nicholson- Stanwix broke the Sixth Form girls’ 400m record.
There were some fine performances from the Year 10 athletes: from Felix MacFall in the 800m; Cathal Sheehan – who finished 2nd and 1st in the U16 Boys 100m and 200m; Tye Comins, competing in High Jump and equalling his 1.50m PB; and Juliette Agrotis, achieving a PB over the 75m Hurdles.
