Schools Battle it out on the Field
Five other local schools joined St Christopher’s at Saar for an afternoon of competitive athletics on Monday 25 January 2016 as part of the Primary Sports League. Each athlete was forced to battle not only against their fellow competitors but a constant blustery wind that made track events more of an endurance than usual. Smiling faces remained all round as personal triumphs were recorded, including the setting of new League records in the Girls 300m by BSB’s Beatriz Merthens and St Chris’s own Josh Cockerill in the boys’ running long jump.
Despite coming away with quite a collection of gold medals, the St Chris team were unable to overcome overall winners BSB in the final standings. Huge thanks to all the officials who volunteered their time and congratulations to the competitors.
