WPT Hosts Day 2 of U11 Sports Hall Athletics Heats

On Wednesday 2nd February, Wickersley Partnership Trust hosted Day 2 of the Rotherham School Games U11 Sports Hall Athletics event.

13 schools from across the region took part, taking the total number of participating schools to 28. 

Taking place across three separate heats, children competed in a range of athletics events which tested their speed, strength, skill and stamina.

Mr Sutherill, School Games Organisor, said: “It was great to see so many children engaged in competitive sport. For many the event will have been their first chance to represent their school in a  sports event, and all the children who attended showed an excellent attitude and high level of skill throughout. We saw some amazing races and field event performances – every child should be proud of their achievements.”

In total, 260 children attended Wednesday’s event meaning that – across the whole U11 Rotherham Sports Hall Athletics event – almost 600 children had the chance to compete. 

Congratulations to the overall winners, St Bede’s, who narrowly beat Listerdale and Swinton Queen into 2nd and 3rd place respectively, and will join Bramley Sunnyside in representing Rotherham in the South Yorkshire Finals in March.
