Y5/6 Primary Athletics Qualifiers @ Dorothy Hyman 06/06/19
Our final day of the Y5/6 qualifiers before our grand final the final chance for primary schools around Barnsley to qualify. This day had Silkstone Common, Springvale, Thurgoland, Brierley and Cawthorne come down to compete.
With each school representing countries around the world we were ready for another amazing day of Athletics! An electric atmosphere ran through the stadium as the pupils gave it their all to win as many points as possible and secure a spot in our grand final! With photo-finish track events, inches separating the pupils in field events and event an appearance from the teachers in a hurdles event which was a fun spectacle to see!
After a very fun afternoon for one and all and all the scores being calculated it was time for the results. Firstly a huge well done for not only the effort but the atmosphere throughout the day provided from every school attending and to Dorothy Hyman for providing their iconic stadium to host it all in.
The results came through as followed in first we are happy to announce that Thurgoland came through as champions as secure the first spot in our finals joining them will be Silkstone Common and Cawthorne coming in second and third respectively. Well done to everyone who attend and can’t wait to see you next year!
