On Tuesday 1st July sixteen Year 7 students (8 girls, 8 boys) represented Tonypandy Community College at theGlamorgan Valley Schools Junior Athletics Championships, held at Brecon Athletics Stadium.
A enjoyable day was had by all, aided by the fine weather and excellent facilities to compete in. Notable performances were the girls 4 x 100m relay team (Caitlin Bray, Kira Cox, Kira Blaken and Lottie Davies) who finished 2nd in their heat and 4th overall. Lottie also came 5th from a large field in the final of the 1500m in soaring temperatures! But the standout result of the day went to Cody Rees who saw off tough competition from a strong list of competitors to go on to win the boys Javelin competition (pictured with his medal and certificate). Well done to all 16 students who made the team (pictured) and we look forward to building on your success at future Athletics meets.
