West Yorkshire Athletics Championships

Added: June 13th, 2016

On Saturday 11th June two students from Royds Hall were selected to represent Kirklees at the West Yorkshire Athletics Championships. Louis was competing in the 100m and Abby in the 200m.

In the heats in the morning, Louis won his heat and qualified fourth fastest for the final. He ran really well in wet conditions to record a time of 12.37 seconds.

Abby was in a straight 200m final and had been struggling prior to the race with injury. She started really well but coming off the bend her leg went again but, she battled on to the finish and came a creditable 6th place overall.

In the final of the 100m, Louis got a poor start out of the blocks but he ran well to come home fourth in a slightly slower time than in the heats. 

Both students must be congratulated on their fantastic performances. Well done!
