The standard of competition was particularly high at this year’s Junior Wessex. With over 24 schools sending their strongest athletes the level of competition will always be a challenge and it was particularly pleasing to see that our athletes did not let themselves down.  There were many notable performances – Georgie W-J stepping in at the last minute and running so well in the relay, George C performing so consistently in four events gaining three medals, the strong running of Jamie P and it is also good to note our throwing is in good hands with Aidan and George G! Isabella G and Evie surprised themselves and grew in confidence in both track and field as did Orlando with his LJ. I would also like to single out the relay teams who put in such determined runs and showed excellent team spirit.
Although the medal are well deserved I would emphasise the great experience all our athletes have gained from a wonderful event and also praise the time and effort many of them have put in during lessons, clubs, activities and free time.
