The annual district athletics championships took place at Wodson Park, with ten schools from across the district competing. Over seventy pupils from Year 7 to Year 13 took to the track or field to represent The Broxbourne School. There were a number of outstanding performances where pupils were rewarded with new personal best times and distances.
The most notable achievement of the day came when the Broxbourne girls’ team collated a staggering 489 points to beat Presdales for the first time in twenty-six years. The twenty-two point winning margin was achieved after the minor girls’ were crown district champions; the inter girls’ team district champions; senior girls’ team district runners-up; junior girls’ team in third place.
In the boys’ competition Broxbourne finished third in both the inter boys’ age group and the seniors, which resulted in a final overall placing of third behind Richard Hale and Simon Balle. With a combination of boys’ and girls’ results Broxbourne won the combined minor trophy, combined inter trophy and finished in third place in the combined juniors.
Congratulations to all pupils who represented the school to help achieve such outstanding results.
