On Tuesday evening the athletics squad made the short journey to Radley to compete in their annual track meet. An event that attracts some of the top independent schools in the country including the likes of Harrow, Eton, Rugby and St Paul's.
The senior squad consisting of Alex Moss, Tom Butcher, Calum Steer and Adewale Adebutu came away with two team gold medals, winning the 4x100m and 4xmedley relays. The medley relay being the highlight event, consisting of 200m, 200m, 400m and 800m. The senior team put in a storming effort and despite the low temperatures and stiff breeze they came within 4 seconds of the all time record, held by Marlborough College since 1970.
The junior team consisting of James Connelly, Daniel Burger, Luka Shanidze and Rowan Miell-Ingram also walked away with their first pieces of silverware, finishing 2nd behind Harrow in the 4xmedley relay, in a time of 4 minutes 14 seconds.
The intermediate squad made up of Josh Ponting, Alex Pennington, Fergus Sweeting, Kipp Mainstone, Liam O'Hickey and Jasper Rolls also ran well in both events but narrowly missed out on the medals.
Congratulations to all involved.
