Blaby & Harborough take the Trophy at Year 5/6 Mixed Sportshall Athletics

Year 5/6 Mixed Sportshall Athletics Super-Series Final

On Friday, 11th January, nine primary schools competed, with around 250 athletes in total, 15 leaders and 40 spectators including staff. There was some great support shown by both the teams spurring each other on and the young leaders who displayed a lot of encouragement towards the athletes, and were even running along side them in the relay race for motivation!

However it was Badgerbrook Primary School from Blaby & Harborough who's efforts took them to victory, with North West Leicestershire in second, North Leicestershire in third and Hinckley and Bosworth winning the Spirit of the Games trophy for demonstrating most the value of: passion, self-belief, respect, honesty, teamwork and determination.
