Several girls from years 5, 6 and 7 had achieved the qualifying standards which enabled them to compete in the IAPS Regional Athletics competition held at Eton on Monday, 13th June.
Orla Williams won the 1500m, breaking the existing record by an outstanding 15 seconds. Annabel Tanner came second in the final of the 100m and Serena Pallenberg finished second in the 800m. Ellie Martin also finished second in the 800m for her age group. In the field events, Phoebe Fox finished second in the javelin and Talia Dicks achieved second place in the discus.
