Sports Round Up

Sports Hall Athletics

On Monday 13th January, three teams of Athletes were at the Temple Park Leisure centre competing at the Tyne and Wear School Games Sportshall Athletics championships. They were all there after qualifying from the Newcastle City round.

The results they returned with were nothing short of phenomenal! The year 7 girls finished in fourth place, which in any other year would have been up there with the best results we have ever had at this event. However, the year 8 Boys and Girls teams were determined to carry on their dominance from the city event and managed to come back to Heaton Manor with Gold medals around their necks!

This is the first time any team from Heaton Manor has won the County Sportshall Athletics so the achievement of these two teams’ cannot be understated!

They beat their peers from Gateshead, Sunderland, Northumberland, North and South Tyneside and Newcastle. The pupils were competing in a range of events including relay and obstacle races as well as standing jumps, shot Putt and speed bounce.

Fantastic effort everyone involved, we hope you are as proud of yourselves as we are!!!

Cross Country

On Tuesday this week a group of our very talented young runners were representing Newcastle at the Northumberland County Cross Country Championships at the Temple Park Leisure centre. They all performed fantastically well on a tough course against some top competition. The stand out result was from Wesley who finished in 11th place in his age category and will now represent Northumberland at the regional round in early February.

Well done everyone, keep on running!
