West Surrey Prep Athletics
Published on 26/06/18
On Monday 18 June, a group of 14 girls travelled to Bracknell for the annual West Surrey Athletics event. It is the most prestigious event of the athletics calendar with the top two finishers selected to represent Surrey at the National Prep Schools Finals in Birmingham.
Whilst it was a hot and sunny day, many of the girls qualified for finals on the track, with Lauren I (1500m) and Hannah B (800m) both obtaining the qualification time required for Birmingham. Overall the girls finished third in their disciplines meaning they will act as non-travelling reserves.
It was the boys turn the following day, with athletes from the Prep School being joined by 3 from the Senior School. Again, it was a hot and sunny day, favouring the shorter distances. Gabriel R and Tom W qualified for the National Championships in the 100m and 1500m respectively. Theo T ran a solid 1500m in the U12 age category and many boys achieved new personal bests.
Congratulations to all those who participated.
