On Wednesday 26 June, Coopersale Hall School took part in the Epping and Ongar District Athletics Tournament, held at Mark Hall Sports Centre, in Harlow.
The first events for our pupils were the running races, 60m, 80m, 200m and 400m. Chloe was first to run in the Girls Year 3 60m race. A huge cheer went up as she sprinted down the track and won! This set the tone for a wonderful morning of athletics with our pupils producing their best performances in all the events.
The other running race winners were; Maria 60m, Nia 80m + 400m, and Chloe 200m. Many excellent second places for Oliver, Maria, Jonathan and Ben.
The jumping event was even more successful. First place winners were Gemma, Stanley, Nieve, Nia and Oliver. Second places went to, Ewan, Oscar and Kimaya. These were the best set of standing long jump results the school as ever had.
The throwing was also a great success. The winners were Aruna, Isabella and Jonathan. Second places went to, Felix, Isabella, and Charlie, who was our excellent Captain of the Athletics team this year.
Finally, it was all down to the Relay Races all 4 x 100m. The teams performed brilliantly with strong performances.
