Watford District Athletics Championships

Woodside Stadium, Wednesday 20th June 2018 Success for Bushey Meads athletics teams !

Last Wednesday saw 100 Bushey Meads students from Years 7-10 competing in the annual Watford District Athletics Championships at Woodside stadium. The event featured all 15 secondary schools in the area and was a very competitive day of highly entertaining athletics. It proved to be a positive day for the school with all of our athletes contributing to a pleasing second place in the overall District B League competition. In the overall schools combined competition Bushey Meads came a very creditable 8th place overall which was a great reflection of all members of the team.

Special mention must to go the two students who won their individual events on the day to become outright District Champions for 2018. These were :

Kaitlyn W – Year 10 Girls Discus (Distance : 26.74m) (Kaitlyn recorded her 4th District Championships win in a row- a fantastic achievement)
