On Thursday 7th July, our Year 7, 8 and 9 girls attended the Nicky Morris athletics event.  There were 19 local schools competing, which was a great experience for the students as it meant they were competing against schools they had not come up against before. The event was split into 3 groups.  Our group meant that we played alongside Broxbourne, St, Marys Bishop Stortford, Goffs and John Warner. 

Year 7

Jessica Lacey, Lois Covill, Phoebe Edmundson, Evie Davies, Harriet Pask, Emily Pask, Sophia Dixon, Tia Weekes, and Isla Fulling.

Results: Sophia won gold in the 70m hurdles, Lois finished 5th in the 100m and Javelin, Harriet won silver in discuss, Evie won silver in shot putt, Phoebe won gold in 800m, Tia won bronze in 200m and long jump, Emily placed 4th in standing triple jump, Jessica won gold in high jump, Isla won silver in 1500m and the 4x 100m relay team Phoebe, Jess, Tia and Sophia won gold.

The Year 8 and 9s finished 3rd with 93 points, St. Marys came 2nd with 97 and Broxbourne won with 99 points.  As a school we finished in 3rd place with 167 points, only 1 point behind St Mary who finished 2nd and Broxbourne won with 175 points.

Well done to all the girls who represented Leventhorpe.  It was a great day out, and behaviour was fantastic. We would also like to thank Lilly Southward and Heather Cannon in Year 12 who came and team managed the event.
