On Tuesday 22nd November the Year 13 BTEC Sport students held the Year 7 and 8 Middlesbrough Schools Sports Hall Athletics competition at Eston Leisure Centre. The students organised the competition as part of their BTEC Sport unit 'organising a sports event' which saw them taking on a number of assignments and tasks in order to plan, prepare and deliver the competition to all Middlesbrough schools. They held meetings with Middlesbrough School Games organiser Anne Vickers and made regular contact with the participating schools to ensure an effective and exciting day for all.
The competition was fantastic and the spectators got to see some very good performances, and excitingly close races. The final results saw Macmillan take home all gold medals and all four teams now go through to represent Middlesbrough in the Tees Valley round of the competition.
Well done to all students who took part and to Daniel Ragusa, Eve Bointon and James Lynas!
