Athletics Success for Noadswood

June 1, 2013

At the annual New Forest Athletics competition this year we did particularly well. There were outstanding individual performances across the Year groups and team successes too. The Year 7 girls relay team not only won but also beat the New Forest record twice, first in the heats and then again in the final. The Year 10/11 girls relay team also won with  Michelle Bigg in Year 11 storming the final leg. Michelle has competed for the last 5 years ending on a high winning the Long Jump and the 200m as well as the relay.

Other trophies were won by the U15 boys and the overall U15 trophy and U17 Boys won with Ben Brearley winning both his events in Javelin and 800m in his final year having competed like Michelle each year he has been at Noadswood.  With the U17  girls teams coming 2nd this meant Noadswood also won the U17 overall trophy. With all of the age group teams coming in the top 3 overall this meant that for the first time in many years Noadswood took home the OVERALL trophy making them the most successful Athletics school in the New Forest in 2013!
