More Athletics and Swimming Success for our Year 8 Athletes

Last Saturday saw young athletes from Penrice represent their schools in the County Championships. Champions from year 8 were Tineasha in 8ZG who won the long jump with a personal best matching jump of 4.29m!  Blake in 8EC was also successful and won the 1500m with a time of 4 minutes and 40 seconds and Kim in 8TG who jumped 1:45m , won the high jump. Following the competition, selectors checked the times and distances against the qualifying standards and found that Blake and Kim have done enough to go on and represent Cornwall at the South West championships in Exeter. At this event, athletes will battle it out for a place at the English Schools championship. Congratulations to all the students involved and well done to Tineasha, Blake and Kim for their success.

Jago in 8AT swam on Saturday in the CCASA 2019 Championships Team Relays Gala at Penzance for the 13 to 14 year old category. He swam with three year 9 boys in his team and they got silver in both events – 4x50m Medley and 4×50 Freestyle. He improved on his personal best’s for both events too. Well done Jago!
