Year 7 Sprint Masters

On Friday 8th September fourteen of our new year 7 pupils attended a sprinting master class with GB athlete Richard Kilty. The pupils were on the Gateshead Quayside, warming up and racing on the temporary track used the following day for the Great North City Games.

The seven boys and seven girls raced against other year 7 pupils from various Newcastle and Gateshead schools. Running in heats and then a semi-final for the chance to race again in the Newcastle/Gateshead Great School Sprint event on Saturday morning, again on the Gateshead Quayside.

With some very good athletes competing, one of our girls (Milly) managed to not only make it through to the final, but also win it in front of large crowds of people. Milly will now represent Newcastle and Gateshead in Manchester later on in the year against winners of similar competitions in Manchester, Birmingham and Portsmouth.

All of the Pupils performed fantastically well and can be extremely proud of their efforts. Well done from everyone at #HMSPEDept.
