Athletics success

John Masefield attended the District Athletics competition, where 44 students from Year 7 through to 10 took part. All students competed fiercely and were proud to compete for John Masefield.  15 students qualified for the County Competition after winning or taking second place in the District competition.

On Saturday 8th June, 7 John Masefield students from years 9 and 10 competed in challenging athletics conditions. All students performed well and showed determination throughout their events.

Shannon Taylor – Discus
Georgia Wilson – 200m and 800m
Jessie Spiller – 100m
Adam Dudley – Long Jump
Katie Dudley – Javelin
Theo Taylor-George – 800m
Rueben Taylor-George – High Jump

Rueben Taylor-George won the High Jump after clearing a great height of 1.65m, he was very close to jumping 1.70m (his PB and National qualification height). Rueben thrived under the pressure of the crowd and finely tuned his technique in very wet and cold conditions. Newly crowned Junior Boys High Jump County Champion, Rueben has qualified to compete on Saturday 15th June at Alexander Stadium, Birmingham for Hereford & Worcester.

We wish you luck in your competition and are hopeful for success and progression to the next stage.

On Wednesday 26th June it is the Minor County Athletics competition for year 7 & 8 qualified students.

Olivia Duncan – Hurdles
Tia Gunner – 100m
Jemima Spiller – 200m

Good luck to Rueben and the minors and well done to all who have already competed.
