PUBLISHED: 09:53 06 February 2011
APPLECROFT School were in superb form as they secured top-spot in the Year 5/6 Indoor Athletics at Stanborough School.
All seven schools in the Stanborough Family took part making it a massive competition.
Applecroft, Creswick, Holwell, Holy Family, Our Lady’s and St John’s Lemsford sent teams of 20 children and Lakeside sent a class of their students to join in too.
Year 11 sports leaders and staff from Stanborough’s PE department officiated both the track and field events.
Fortunately the Year 10 exam which was taking place that afternoon was a long way away because there was an enormous amount of noise generated by children cheering on their competitors.
The competition results were: 1st Applecroft 252 points; 2nd Our Lady’s 178 points; 3rd Holy Family 176 points; 4th Holwell 160 points; 5th Creswick 136 points; 6th St John’s Lemsford 118 points.
Applecroft will be joined in the Partnership Final by Welwyn St Mary’s who triumphed in the Monk’s Walk Partnership section. Templewood came second with St Michael’s third.
