On Monday 11th June 2018 we took 24 Year 9 and 10 students to Yeovil Athletics track for the yearly Mendip Area Athletics Meet including Frome and St Dunstans. The students also competed against a number of schools within the Sedgemoor Area including Haygrove and Brymore. Each year group had a girls and boys team representing the Kings of Wessex, the year 10’s had a strong showing of 8 students each whereas the year 9’s had 4 each. This didn’t stop them from filling a high proportion of the events with each event scoring the team points.
Some of the successes of the day included:
100m Winners – Hannah Bolt and Lewis Hembrow Mckinley
200m Winners – Izzy Taylor and Lewis Hembow Mckinley
300m Winners – Matt Gwilliams and Ellen Scantlebury
1500m Winner – Emily Murray
Triple Jump Winner – Bettine Harris
Shot Putt Winner – Lewis Hembrow Mckinley
4 x 100m Winners – Year 10 Girls
Overall all the students worked extremely hard to ensure as many events were filled and do their part for the team. As it was a team competition each group had the opportunity to qualify for the Somerset Summer Games.

Year 9 Boys - 2nd Place by only 2 points
