Fun in the sun as records tumble
THE most prestigious sporting event of the St. Neot’s Preparatory School calendar took place last Wednesday in glorious conditions – and it certainly brought the best out of the competitors
Excited pupils wore their house bibs with pride and there were some incredible performances with school records broken and personal bests smashed.
Among the highlights were Roslyn, in Year 6, who broke the school record for the girls discus with a throw of 18.73m. Her sister Eve in Year 8 then went on to break her own school record for the high jump by one centimetre with a jump of 1.42m.
Ben, in Year 8, brought proceedings to a halt as he smashed his personal best in the high jump – by seven centimetres – with a height of 1.47m. Finally, the House Relay, exciting as always, was an incredibly close race with Guinness just beating Wellesley to the finish line.
Darren Lynch, Director of Sport at the school was full of praise, adding: “The atmosphere today has been fantastic. Great sportsmanship and courage from those who may have fallen over but got up to finish the race”.
