A team of 28 children from Prep V and Prep VI travelled to Robin Park in Wigan today to compete in the Association of Junior Independent Schools (AJIS) Indoor Athletics Championships. There was a tremendous competitive edge to the event, and a very high standard of athletics on offer from the twenty eight schools present.
Bridgewater got off to a fantastic start: in the very first track event of the day, Imran set a new AJIS record for the U11 1 lap event, replicating his efforts in the U10 event last year. Further medals followed: Raya also set a new AJIS record in the U11 javelin, Samuel achieved a gold in the U11 vertical jump, Harvey came second in the U10 chest push and Jack achieved third place in the U11 chest push.
These athletes were in the top three in their event, but many of our athletes were pushing for the top three spots, so narrow were the margins. Medals or not, every Bridgewater athlete today pushed themselves to the limit in their quest for success. Well done all!
