Mrs Brennan and Miss Foley were very proud to accompany a group of St Joseph’s athletes at the Wiltshire Schools athletics trials on Saturday 13th June.
For most of the athletes it was their first time representing Swindon and despite the nerves and unfamiliar surroundings they acquitted themselves tremendously well. Notable performances came from Teresa Iannetelli with a 2nd place finish in the Intermediate girls 200m. This was her fourth race of the day as she had also contested the heat and final of the 100m. Andrew Simango improved with every throw in the junior boys discus eventually finishing in 3rd place. Also in the field there were 6th place finishes for both Rafael Torregrosa-Jones in the junior boys triple and Keisha Ishani in the junior girls shot putt. Back on the track Camille Valere ran a great race in the minor girls 200m narrowly missing out on a place in the final.
We would like to say big thank you to all our students for being a credit to the college and to the parents who came to drop off, collect and support on the day.
