Monday saw nine athletes from Upper Fourth and Lower Remove competing at the Hereford and Worcestershire Combined Events Championships at Hereford Leisure Centre.
Each athlete had to participate in five events, consisting of Hurdles, Shot Put, Long Jump, High Jump and 800m.
It was a fantastic day for all the athletes involved, with some outstanding performances across the day, and an excellent opportunity for the athletes to show the breadth of their talent across the different events. All our athletes performed brilliantly in their five events.
The Junior Girls had a strong competition, with Hattie W (Upper Fourth) winning the Shot Put with a distance of 6.80m and coming fourth in the Long Jump with a distance of 4.09m, meaning she came eighth overall in the competition. Esther G (Lower Remove) had a great competition, achieving 7th overall and consistently performing well across all of the events. Congratulations to Hebe S (Upper Fourth) and Jess M (Lower Remove), who came eleventh and eighteenth respectively.
The Junior Boys had an excellent competition, with a special mention for Roman W (Upper Fourth), who won the Hereford and Worcestershire Combined Events Championship, and Ollie I (Upper Fourth,) who came second in the competition. Roman performed consistently well all day, winning the High Jump and coming second in the Long Jump, 80m Hurdles and Shot Put. Congratulations to Mateo S (Upper Fourth), who won the Long Jump with a distance of 4.54m, coming fourth in the overall competition. Ollie W-J (Lower Sixth) came fifth overall in the competition, and Ethan W (Upper Fourth) came eleventh.
Both Roman and Ollie have now qualified to compete for Hereford and Worcestershire in the regional Combined Events Championships, taking place in Banbury.
Congratulations to all the athletes involved. We wish you the best of luck as the season progresses!
