HARRISON REED and GEORGE HO (YR9)

Harrison Reed (YR10) and George Ho (YR9) both competed in the Club: Connect Under 14 Boys 4 x 100m Relay for Milton Keynes Athletics Club at the Müller Grand Prix in Birmingham during the summer holidays.

George ran a strong first leg and Harrison ran a terrific fourth leg, narrowing a gap of about twenty metres considerably in that final stretch. The team finished in second place with a new club record time of 47.33 secs, smashing the previous record by two seconds.

This was a big Athletics meeting with the likes of Mo Farah and other household names competing.

Harrison had the opportunity to discuss his plans for the future with Devon Allen (USA), who finished third in the 110m Hurdles.

George’s overriding memory of the day was looking up and seeing himself on the big screen in the stadium at the start of the race. He’d never experienced anything quite like that before and said it was totally inspiring. He was also very pleased to have met GB Sprinter, Adam Gemili.

George is pictured on the left and Harrison on the right in their team photo.

Very well done boys. It is incredible that two students from our school should both take part in the same race at such a prestigious event as this.

Year 8 Boys 5 a-side Tournament 2016-17

eyrecrop2017

The team (photographed with their medals) – Rocco Palmiero, Ajiri Ukeleghe, Dayan Sood, Billy Towers, Kian Potter and George Miller.

Mr Eyre took our YR8 boys 5 a-side football team to the MK Schools Tournament held at Sir Herbert Leon on 4th July and came home as Champions with gold medals around their necks.

It was a magnificent feat by the boys, who had to play ten back to back games that were each eight minutes long.

Having done enough in the group stage for a place in the semi-final, they played Ousedale who they drew 1-1 with. Dayan Sood scored the goal for Walton High. The winner of that game was decided by a penalty shoot-out. Goalkeeper, Kian Potter, saved a penalty to set up a final against SBE.

In the final, Rocco Palmiero scored early on and Kian made another great save to ensure a 1-0 win.

Mr Eyre was full of praise for the whole team. He described Dayan and Rocco’s link-up play as unplayable at times, but was very quick to say that it was a terrific team effort all round.

Mr Eyre’s Player of the Tournament was Rocco Palmiero. Players’ Player was Kian Potter who kept four clean sheets in total.
