Mr Barry took a group of Year 7 and Year 8 pupils to Gateshead Stadium yesterday to participate in the Track and Field Championships. Here is his sports round-up:
Yesterday was an incredible day for athletics! All of the pupils who attended the event showcased how exceptional Hexham Middle School is!
The event required pupils to take part in both track and field which is very difficult to do. Throughout the day pupils received their results, which were then converted to a points score.
Special shout-outs to Megan C and Lewis D for being the highest scoring boy and girl. Other highlights are Grace R’s discus performance, Sophie L’s javelin throws, Lucas’s incredible 100m, the race between Sam H and Hugo M in the 300m and Ben H’s javelin throw.
A special thank you to Sam E, Zach M and Sam D for stepping up a year group and scoring huge numbers of points for the team!
Overall a 9th place finish for the girls and a 3rd place finish for the boys! We are waiting to hear if the boys have now qualifed for the next round. An incredible achievement for all involved!
