Congratulations to all of those who competed in a closely fought Sports Day, with the relays proving crucial in all categories of competition.
In the girls’ competition, DeWinton just pipped Donaldon’s House 123 points to 121.
For the boys, the middle school competition was tied between St David’s and School House; it came down to the senior relay to separate these two Houses – School House ran out eventual winners.
In the junior competition for years 7 and 8, Usk beat Wye into second place with 180 points to 171.
There were a few stand-out individual performances at this age group to set new Sports Day records – Jonathon Cornish in the High Jump, James Williams in the shot and on the track, Llyr Thomas set the new standard for 100m.
In the senior competition it was not a day for record breaking. Nevertheless, some individuals were very influential across the competition. Willow Ransome completed the middle school sprint double and Milly Davies was champion in 1500m and High Jump.
Dan Clarke impressively anchored the School House relay, as well as demonstrating his all round athletic versatility by winning 200m, 800m and High Jump.
Angus Cloke won both middle school shot and discus.
Fred Davies secured an exciting sprint double for St David’s and Jacob Williams, also from St David’s, duplicated his younger brother’s success by winning the senior category of the shot; Jacob also won the discus competition.
Kate Griffin was crowned undisputed senior endurance champion with victories in 1500m and 800m.
