Lauren had not picked up a shot before this term, but was quickly identified as someone with potential in this event. She worked hard to hone her technique, and was delighted to win the County Championships in Ashford. She therefore went on to represent Kent in the IAPS National Athletics Championships in the Alexander Stadium in Birmingham where she came 4th in the country! A superb achievement.
Maddie, our talented middle-distance runner, was 2nd in Kent, but easily achieved the qualifying time to allow her to compete in Birmingham to represent her county. In an exceptionally fast race, where there were many top 800m runners competing, she came 10th in the country. Very well done!
Lucinda W amazed us all at athletics club when she showed us how good she was at discus and javelin. Bearing in mind that she is in Year 5; to be selected to represent the Granville in the County Championships, and then go on to win the javelin is exceptional. She can look forward to having another go next year, and has every chance of medalling at the Nationals in 2016 for javelin, or maybe discus, or even long jump! This year in Birmingham, she also achieved 10th place in the country.
All of us at the Granville are hugely proud of these three talented athletes.
