Throwing, running and jumping to athletics success
Our athletes have been in fine form throughout the Summer term, notching up some fantastic personal bests and successes in local competitions. Here’s a round-up some of their achievements.
Both Junior and Inter boys qualified to compete in the Regional round of the ESAA Track and Field Cup on Thursday 12 June at Lea Valley Stadium. The competition was of a very high standard and the Perse students did well gaining lots of PBs.
In addition to these successes, Robert Anderson, Robbie Hayes, Tess Howard and Ciaran Flaherty have been selected to represent Cambridgeshire this weekend at the Anglian Schools’ Championships.
Robbie Hayes has also been selected to represent the County on 3 August at the South of England Athletics Association Inter-Counties track and field Championships.
Well done everyone!
