Relay Running Success
10 June 2016
On Thursday 26 May, a number of Prep EHS athletes participated in the Hallfield School Athletics Relay Event. Three girls from Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 were selected to make up a combined Year 3 and 4 team and a Year 5 and 6 team.
All girls had to participate in a 50m sprint relay, a medley relay and either a 400m or 200m sprint. The combined Year 3 and 4 team consisted of Oko, Star, Amarah, Olamadi, Hannah and Phoebe. The girls displayed some outstanding sprint talent winning all of their events, placing them first overall.
The Year 5 and 6 team consisted of Arriella, Jaya, Audrey, Miaa, Lucy and Emily. The girls were up against tough opposition in this category but placed second in the 50m relays and third overall. A great achievement!
A huge well done to all of the girls who competed, and a big thank you to all the parents who came along to support and encourage the girls.
