Superb afternoon of athletics at Senior School Sports Day

It was a festival of athletics at the AKS Annual Senior Sports Day which saw school records broken and a host of personal best performances as all pupils participated in up to four individual events to not only gain valuable House Points but also in their quest to be crowned the Champion of their year.

Top performance of the day came in the Year 9 boys discus competition where William got into the school record books throwing a superb 35.08m to not only smash the school record by 10m but also beat the Arnold/KEQMS Allcomers record, which has stood since 1995.

Also in the throwing events Year 7 Evie set a Yr 7 AKS Javelin record with a throw of 18.54m whilst Jessica  equalled the Year 7 High Jump record with a leap of 1.15m.

On the track there was a host of great performances the pick of which was in the Year 8 100m where another superb run from County Champion Jeremy  saw him break  the AKS record with a time of 12.4, missing out on the all comers record by just 0.4 of a second.

The action packed afternoon saw every pupil gaining points for their house and the contest to become Champion House was one of the closest for many years. At the end of the day Salmesbury were crowned Sports Day Champions winning by just 15 points ahead of Leighton.

In addition to House Champions the pupils also gain individual points for the events they participate in to go towards the Individual Champion Awards. With pupils allowed to participate in two track and two field events the individual winners were true all-round athletes  and they were : Year 7 Girls Pryanka  Year 7 Boys Finnian  Year 8 Girls Olivia Year 8 Boys Tom  Year 9 Girls Joint Prisha  & Ziv  Year 9 Boys Mitchell  Year 10 Girls Hannah and Year 10 Boys Chris.

Overall a superb day of athletics enjoyed by pupils, staff and parents.
