Sportshall Athletics County Final

Sportshall Athletics County Finals

Fresh off the back of their win at the West Oxfordshire tournament, The Batt Sportshall team arrived at Blackbird Leys Leisure Centre on the hottest day of the year so far to compete against nine other of the best athletics teams in the county.

Competing in six different relay based track events and six field events that included jumps, throws and speed bounce. The Batt set about their task by winning the girls obstacle relay to set the tone of the competition. Although many of the races were won by The Batt it was difficult to tell how the event was going as the field events were taking place alongside the races.

Whilst the points from all the events were being totalled, The Batt joined forces to compete with Woodstock to challenge as the West Oxfordshire team in a 4 by 1 relay which they won comfortably and even Mr Baker managed a joint 1st place in the teachers javelin throw.

When the announcement was made The Batt were crowned as Sporthall athletics champions for the first time ever winning from Sonning Common in second by a 25 point margin.

Massive congratulations to all The Batt’s athletes who put in everything they had into the competition and deservedly got their rewards for a great team effort!
