National English Schools Athletics Championships
Congratulations to five Owen’s students who competed at the National English Schools Athletics Championships on the 9th-11th July in Manchester where we competed in Javelin, 1500m, Triple Jump, 3000m and High Jump.
Evelyne was in a tough Senior Girls High Jump competition finishing in the top 12 in the UK. Freya had a really tough 3000m final in a surprisingly hot Manchester, the pace was quick and there was a group of eight who broke off. Freya ran really well and finished a brilliant 4th in her final year. One of our Year 10 students was in a tough competition in the Triple Jump, missed the cut off and finished 9th. Aimi had a highly competitive 1500m race where she ran strong and finished a fantastic 2nd with a brilliant time of 4.26.85 meaning she has now been picked to represent England in the England Schools International match later this year. Milo Grigson was our final student to compete over the weekend going into the competition ranked 16th in the UK. Milo threw a fantastic 40.68m to finish in 7th position! We are all very super proud of you all!
