NWESSA District Athletics Championships

Tabor held the annual secondary school district athletics competition on Tuesday 18th June. Tabor were joined by Alec Hunter, Forest Hall, Hedingham, Honywood, HRS, Joyce Frankland, Maltings, New Rickstones, Notley, Ramsey and Saffron Walden for the event, and everyone was treated to some outstanding performances on the track and field from competitors linked to all of the schools. Tabor have been able to compete remarkably well in the past few years against schools with a larger batch of students to select from and this year’s competition was no different as we saw Tabor make the podium places in six of the nine possible categories.

There were standout performances from Lewis C in year 9 who became the district champion in the junior boys 300 metres and broke the school record with a time of 40.81 seconds. He was joined as district champion by Elisha E in year 10, who was victorious in the intermediate girls 200 metres, narrowly missing the school record with a superb time of 26.75 seconds. Jack P in year 8 was also able to break a school record in the triple jump with a brilliant distance of 10.03 metres. The Tabor District squad consisted of close to 100 students from the school, which led to a third place finish overall finishing just behind Saffron Walden and Maltings.
