Second Year of Athletics Glory

For the Second Year in a Row William Barnes Win Sturminster Athletics A fantastic team effort from children in years 3,4,5 and 6 once again gave William Barnes victory in the area athletics but this year by the narrowest of margins.

After competing in track and field events for nearly two hours scores were neck and neck between Child Okeford, Stalbridge and William Barnes, but once again our superb relay teams saved the day by winning six out of the final eight races. Initially the final scores appeared to show that there was one point between first and second place, but a later recount showed it was not quite as close. Final scores were William Barnes 68, Child Okeford 65, Stalbridge 60, Hazelbury 24, Shillingstone 18. Mr Hull would like to thank all those who came to help and support the teams.
