The athletics team took the Rugby track for the first round of the English Schools Cup, the competition is entirely based on points. Each performance is compared to a points table, the better the performance the higher the points. The points get added together to make a total for their age group.
Unfortunately, due to some injuries to key performers none of the Southam College teams managed to progress through to the second round, however we had some excellent performances throughout the day.
Stand out performances for the girls came from Georgia Clarke in the intermediate girls 300m with a time of 43.4secs scoring her a fantastic 25points for that event. For the Boys, Rhys James in the 1500m with a time of 4m.34.9s to score him 19points. A full set of results is available at http://www.esaa.net/
A huge thank you to those athletes who came along to the event to help step in for those injured athletes.
Miss Warman, Mr MacGibbon and Mr Southall
