The games are organised by Yorkshire Sport Foundation for students in Years 3-6 who’ve been selected to represent their school’s district (Bradford, Calderdale, Kirklees, Leeds and Wakefield). This year’s games were held at Temple Newsam on 6th March.
The top 12 finishers in the Year 5 and Year 6 races go on to represent West Yorkshire in the National Schools’ finals. This time round, four of our athletes gained selection: Abby Clay (Year 5 Girls), Mia Naylor (Year 6 Girls), Logan Walker (Year 6 Boys) and Charlie Robinson, who was the individual Year 5 Boys’ winner.
In the other age-groups, there was a fine run from William Johnson (Year 4 Boys) and good efforts from Eloise Temple (Year 3 Girls), Isabelle Jebb (Year 4 Girls), and Seth Linacre (Year 6 Boys).
Well done to everyone, and good luck to those selected for the finals, which will be at Prestwold Hall, Loughborough on 23rd March.
