Rokeby achieved a fantastic 14 1st places at the 1st Athletics Meeting
Saturday 15th May saw the first of this year's Athletics Meetings. A group of 32 boys, representing Years 3-6 ventured over to Wimbledon Park to take on Donhead and Shrewsbury House. The event that ensued proved to be closest for years. Rokeby achieved a fantastic 14 1st places. This feat included Harry Webster, Miles Green and Arthur Graham recording two individual 1st places. The amazing performances were added to by the fact that two boys broke existing school records, Arthur Graham (Under 9 150m - 21.95secs) and Myles Green (Under 9 High Jump - 1.24m). A total of 19 performances achieved the minimum qualifying standard for the London Prep Schools Athletics. These performances will provide many a headache when it comes to final selection!
The final results came down to all four relays, with Rokeby being just a point behind Shrewsbury House. Despite the boys giving 110% in the relays, we were narrowly beaten to the post, however a fantastic achievement and effort from all involved.
