Year 7 Boys and Year 8 Girls compete at London Youth Games Final!
On Wednesday 22nd March 2017, The Douay Martyrs Catholic Secondary School took two of our Indoor Athletics teams to the London Youth Games Finals at Crystal Palace. Both our Year 7 Boys and Year 8 Girls teams had made it through three rounds to reach the final stage of the competition where the opposition was stronger than ever before.
Below are the rounds we progressed through before reaching the finals:
Round 1 – North Hillingdon Champions
Round 2 – Hillingdon Borough Champions
Round 3 – West London Champions
All of our students performed really well on the day and were given an amazing experience that they will never forget. Both teams finished in 6th place which may seem disappointing to some but to progress through all the previous rounds as champions and finish as the 6th best school in London at Indoor Athletics is a seriously impressive achievement! Following a successful Indoor season of Athletics, we will now turn our attention to Outdoor Athletics during the summer term and hope to repeat the same levels of success.
