Upwards of 1,000 athletes attended the National Prep Schools Finals held at the Alexander Stadium in Birmingham, to compete in some 60 separate events. Some of our Mount Kelly athletes were part of Team Drake, and did very well either on the track or in the field; many of them they were competing on a National stage the first time and they were up against some very, very strong opposition.
Amongst some strong performances were:
Amelia Riggott finished 4th in the U13 1500m
Sandor Apponyi finished 5th in the U14 300m (New School Record 41.40 secs)
Sophie Main finished 6th in the U14 1500m
In previous years we have had one or two podium finishes, this year, 2017, represents one of our largest haul of medals:
Jamie Bulbring 3rd U14 Girls 100m
Jamie Bulbring 3rd U14 Girls 200m
Ben Pitts 3rd U14 Boys Long Jump
Ben Pitts: National Champion in the U14 Boys 200m
Jed Hutchings: National Champion in the U12 Boys 800m (School Record 2m 23 secs)
This was a fitting end to a season which has seen our athletes break a huge number of school records and gain local, county and national success.
