Winton Win!

Before half term Winton attended the first league meeting of the Indoor Athletics season. With 25 athletes sprinting over or under obstacles, jumping at speed or throwing for distance, the Indoor Athletics event at Avonbourne Secondary School is always an exciting competition. 6 schools compete against each other and the top 2 schools go through to the Bournemouth finals. Pleasingly our team showed a great energy, attitude and commitment to securing as many points as possible from their individual or team races or events. At the end of the 30+ events Winton Boys team came 1st overall and the girls team 2nd. However overall Winton managed to take the victory with St. James in 2nd and Park school 3rd. We now need to stay in the top two schools after next month’s meet to qualify for the finals. Congratulations to everyone involved. A brilliant team effort.
