SMMA Athletics compete against the best at Lee Valley Cup

12 June 2017

SMMA Athletics travelled to the Blue Ribband Athletics Cup Competition of 2017 for the Lee Valley Trophy. Straight from the English Schools’ Cup, the Year 7, 8 and 9 girls’ team put a great display on to challenge schools from all over the South East of England.

Star performances in the Year 7 team came from Jo Jo who placed in the top 5 in the 200m, as well as excelling in the Long Jump. Thea Aubrey Gimenez also battled well to place 5th in the 1500m in a school record of 6m 52s.

The Year 8 and 9 combined team had encouraging performances from a very young team with Efeona Agbede once again performing very well to win the 200m in 29.38. Saffron Boatfield has also been a valuable asset this year to the team with yet another fine performance in the 300m with a 4th place finish.

Next week sees the boys’ team travel for the fixture in another competitive opportunity for SMMA athletics.
