Year Nine Ulster Inter-District Athletics Championships

Congratulations to a number of Grosvenor’s second form athletes who were selected to compete as members of the County Down District team at the Year Nine Ulster Inter-District Athletics Championships, held at The Antrim Forum on Thursday 13th June.

Perhaps the highlight of the day was Ben Stevenson’s victory in the boys’ long jump, with his leap of 5.33 metres breaking the School record set only earlier this season by Nathan Chan.  Elsewhere Nathan himself emulated Ben’s feat by also securing victory in the triple jump, this time with a distance of 10.27 metres, while Jake Laverty achieved third place in the shot with a distance of over nine metres.

Well done to Ben, Nathan and Jake, as well as Grosvenor’s other participants on the day, namely: Jos McConkey, Jonny Little and Anna Stanfield, each of whom should take great satisfaction merely from being selected for this prestigious event – we wish each of them the best of luck throughout the remainder of the season.
