CHAFYN GROVE - SALISBURY
Junior Wessex Athletics Championships
Saturday 11th June 2016
On Saturday, children in Yrs 3, 4 and 5 competed against 24 other schools at the Junior Wessex Athletics Championships in Lymington. With the best in the area, competition was strong and Chafyn Grove children did not disappoint. They all threw, jumped and ran to the best of their ability, with positive team spirit in abundance. Well done to all the children but especially, Hamish McN with a bronze medal in 200m, Archie N with a gold medal in 800m, Grace H with a silver medal in the rounders ball throw and the Yr 4 boys with a well deserved gold medal in the 4 x 100m relay.
Senior Wessex Athletics Championships
Monday 13th June 2016
The Senior Wessex Athletics Championships see the best Yr 6, 7 and 8 children in the area compete for a place in the National Athletics Championships in Birmingham in early July. With tough competition and national standards to achieve, a place in the Nationals is well earned. Chafyn Grove took 20 of their best athletes to compete and with a bit of luck in the weather, a positive and productive day was had by all. Well done to all the children but a special mention to Millie R (4th in hurdle final), Saffron H (6th in 100m final), Matthew S (5th in hurdles final) and the U12 Girls (5th in relay final). Congratulations to U12 boys for a bronze medal in relay, Matthew S for a bronze medal and a PB in javelin, Olivia S for a bronze medal in shot, Jack C with a silver medal in 800m and Will M with a bronze medal in 800m. The U13 boys won gold in the 4x100m relay unfortunately the only event not to feature in the Nationals, however winning a gold medal in javelin with a PB and a silver medal in 1500m, Ollie CS will represent Chafyn Grove in both events in the Nationals next month. Well done to all the athletes involved.
