On Wednesday 10th June, 43 of Denton's finest young athletes took part in the annual District Sports athletics event, held at Lewes Leisure Centre. We were competing agianst local schools, Telscombe Cliffs, Meridian, Harbour and Peacehaven Heights. The team ran, jumped, threw and relayed their hearts out, and we finsihed third overall, behind 1st placed Telscombe and 2nd placed Meridian; a fine effort.
Special mentions must go to Kacie Proudlock (50m sprint), Alfie Sheehan (throwing), Caitlin Sanford (60m sprint and long jump), Kelly Dixon (throwing), Lucas Richardson (80m sprint), Jessica Gostock (long jump) and Ciaran Richardson (throwing) who all won their events. Caitlin Sanford (long jump), Lucas Richardson and Jessica Gostock all went one better than even that by setting all time records on their way to victory!
Our highest placed team was Year 5, who finished 2nd overall in the Year 5 category. Year 3 finished 3rd, Year 4 finshed 4th and Year 6 finished 3rd. A big congratulations to all that took part.
