Turves Green Boys’ School played host to the local indoor athletics competition on the 25th January 2024. Year 7 and 8 teams from a number of schools came together to compete in both track and field events. In a thrilling display of athleticism, our Year 8 students emerged victorious, showcasing their prowess and team spirit!
The Year 8 team dominated various events, including sprints, relays, and field events, securing the top spot in the overall standings. Their exemplary teamwork and individual achievements stood out, earning them well-deserved praise from both teachers and competitors alike.
While Year 8 celebrated their triumph, the Year 7 team put up a valiant effort, narrowly missing out on the top spot. Despite facing stiff competition, the younger students demonstrated remarkable skill and determination. Their performance hinted at a promising future in later competitions.
The Indoor Athletics Competition served as a platform for young talents to showcase their abilities and foster a sense of sportsmanship among the students. Both Year 7 and Year 8 athletes received applause for their sportsmanship, resilience, and commitment to excellence.
Such skills were also shown by our Year 10 leaders who gave up their time to run the event. After some training by the lead organiser, they took the reins and orchestrated a wonderful competition.
The Year 8 team now look forward to the next round where they will face off against schools from across the whole West Midlands region.
