After some tremendous efforts at today's PEDSSA Sportshall Athletics competition at Ferndown Upper School, our group of Year 6 athletes came the closest Cranborne Middle School have ever come to taking the title away from Allenbourn. With some displays of brilliant sprinting, throwing and jumping, the year 6 team finished runners up just TWO POINTS behind the winners, Allenbourn! The entire range of emotions was experienced: excitement, nervousness, elation, disappointment and frustration.
I could not have asked for any more from each and every one of the athletes. They gave their all, were impeccably behaved and above all, they helped, encouraged and supported their team mates through all of their events with maturity and camaraderie.
Whilst many may be feeling a little disheartened tonight, they can look back on their efforts with pride and know for the first time ever... we had our opponents worried!!
Well done Cranborne.
Sometimes sport is about more than just winning and you proved that today.
