Year 7 and 8 Indoor Athletics

17th January 2017

The athletics season kicked off on the 17th January with the Kirklees Schools qualifiers at Batley Sports Centre. Three Manor Croft teams, Year 7 Boys and Year 8 Boys and Girls, qualified for the Kirklees finals on Tuesday, 7th February at the Barn on Leeds Road.  The students took part in track and field events and represented the Academy with pride and passion all afternoon.  Parents who came to support the event commented on how well behaved and organised the teams from MCA were on the day.  Although we didn’t qualify for the Yorkshire School's event, we had a number of standout performances: Year 7 boys Alfie and Nathan won silver in the combined shot putt and Joe won silver in the speed bounce.  Year 8 boys Taylor and Bradley won gold in the combined shot putt and Taylor and Joshua won silver in the combined 4 lap race.  Year 8 girls Lucy-Mae won silver in the 4 lap race and bronze in the long jump, Courtney won bronze in the shot putt.
