On Wednesday 26th January, WPT hosted the first full day of U11 Sports Hall Athletics heats in the Sports Hall at Cranworth Road.
15 schools were split across three separate heats throughout the day, all competing in a number of different track and field events including speed bounce, long jump and a variety of different sprint and relay races.
Mr Walker, School Games Organiser for the Wickersley area, said: “It was fantastic to have around 300 children from across the borough compete in the first primary Sports Hall Athletics competition for two years. The standard (and noise level!) was extremely high throughout the day, with all children competing with a smile on their faces.”
Congratulations to Bramley Sunnyside, who will go on to represent Rotherham at the South Yorkshire Finals in March. Another 14 schools will again compete across three heats on Wednesday 2nd February, to see who will join Bramley Sunnyside in qualifying for the South Yorkshire School Games.
