Sussex Area Prep School Athletics - Hurstpierpoint College

Sussex Area Prep School Athletics

This year’s SAPSA Year 4 and 5 Athletics Event was on a glorious summer day. There were 28 schools in attendance for the annual event and all pupils had the chance to take part in all athletics events and for the first time for years 4 and 5, Shot Put, Discus, and Javelin.

There was some excellent talent on show all day with seven new meeting records set. The 4 x 100m relay proved to be one of the most popular and hotly contested events with every school entering a team at every age level for both boys and girls.

Following the culmination of the Relay finals, medals were handed out by the Head of College, Dominic Mott who extended his thanks to the Hurst Sports Team for all their hard work.

Overall, an excellent day for Hurst, who came away with three gold medals: Rosie Y-J, Year 5 Girls High Jump, Yuchen C, Year 4 Boys Long Jump and Lola F, Year 5 Girls Shot Put!
