2016 / 2017 Athletics Match Reports

Tuesday 11th October
For the first time in Southampton Schools Games history Year 3 and 4  children were able to compete in an Indoor Athletics Tournament. Overall 7 schools attended the event and the competition was as strong as seen at Year 5 and 6 events.
In the track events Bassett Green struggled in their heats. However, in the field events we really came into our own with Zephan Mitchell picking up Silver in the Shot Putt. Only missing out by 0.2 of a metre.
Bassett Green's superstar for the day will be remembered as Mustafa Mokhtar after he managed to fend off all his challengers and claim 1st place, Gold for Bassett Green!
Team Bassett Green finished 6th place overall. The afternoon was a great experience for all involved, a fantastically organised event and a doorway for our children to be involved in yet more sport!

What a fantastic afternoon we had at the Indoor Athletics. Year 1/2 got to take part in 5 field events Chest Push, Speed Bounce, Shot Putt, Standing Long Jump and Target Throw. The Children then took part in some running races against other schools.
The event was a fantastic opportunity for KS1 to trial the events they will be competing in during their latter years at Primary school. We have a bright future ahead with these fantastic athletes!
Not only were the children excellent during their events but they were also a huge credit to the school. Behaviour was exemplary and the children were a fantastic advert for Team BG!
