2010 Athletics Sports

Amazing Athletics
On Tuesday the day before our sports we made some pompoms with blue and white streamers.
  Bailee and I made one together.
   On Wednesday morning we were driving to the high school and Bailee was in front of us and Elli was behind. When I arrived there I was really excited and couldn’t wait to get started.    
The teams were Darby, Oberon, Waratah, Welshpool and Toora.
 
The first event for our group (U11G) was Distance. It was 400m and tiring. Next was High Jump, I really enjoyed that. But I didn’t get a ribbon.
  After that we did Hurdles. I knocked 2 down but I tried my best. Then we did discus, followed by Long Jump.  In the Sprints I came 2
nd in my heat.  Second last was Shot Put. I was really close to a ribbon.  Before lunch was Triple Jump.
After lunch were the Hurdles finals, Sprint finals, Relay and 800m.
  I was in the relay, which was cool.  I did the 800m too. Elli won a medal for her age group.  The Oberon tent fell over!  That made a bit of a commotion.  Darby won. We came 4
th. Overall it was a great day.   By Kate Jenkins

The Fantastic Sports Day
Yesterday the 13
th of April most of Toora Primary School went to the Prom Coast Sports.  I was under 11’s.  The first thing we did was long distance running, that was hard.  Then we did high jump I was out at the beginning because I knocked over the bar, but I cheered the rest of Toora.  The next event was hurdles.  In my heat I came 3
rd.  Discus was fun but I
didn’t get a place.
  I enjoyed long jump.  In my heat in the sprints I came 2nd.  I was proud of myself.  Then we did
shot-put.
  I got a score of 2 for the first time.  Our next event was triple jump.  I had a little laugh because I did hop step and jump and then landed on the concrete!  I got to do 2 relays one for 11g and one for 12g we came 4th in the 12g.  There was an event open from 9 to 12+ years.  It was an 800m run.  I did it but I was tired and had a stitch but I was very proud.
