Before half term students from Walton took part in their first athletics event in two years! Mrs Dolby, Miss Morton, Miss Fincham and Mr Taxis took thirty pupils to the YMCA Newark and Sherwood Community and Activity village to compete against local secondary schools.

The excitement was very clear to see from the outset but once the first event had been completed the nerves subsided and the performances shone! Everyone who took part gave it their all and represented Walton faultlessly. We are still waiting for the official results, however there was some stand out achievements on the day. Freddi P won the shot putt, Riley B came second in the long jump, Ayanda N came third in the shot putt, Tia-Louise R won the 100m heat and Mia B came second in her 100m heat and placed highly in the long jump. These results mean that many students have qualified to represent the zone at the Lincolnshire Championships next month.

Well done to everyone who took part and an update will be shared about the event next month when they are available.
