News » EGA are Girls Borough Champions 2011!
On Wednesday 6th July 35 pupils from years 7 to 10 took part in the annual Islington borough athletics Championships at New River Stadium, Tottenham.
The day got off to a great start with years 7, 8 and 9 all winning gold medals in the 1500m. By lunch time, and after many successful events, there were only 3 points separating EGA and Mount Carmel who were last years winners. The afternoon continued as the morning did and by the end of the Championships EGA had come away with 11 Gold, 11 silver and 13 bronze medals. Despite the high medal tally it was still close between EGA and Mount Carmel, however, in a nail biting finish and after some excellent performances in the 4 x 100m relays, EGA were announced Islington Borough Girls Athletics Champions 2011 for the first time ever!
A big thank you goes to all staff for supporting the girls, in particular Miss Silva, Miss McLachlan and Miss Sterne. A huge congratulations goes to all of the girls who took part. They showed dedication, determination and great sportsmanship. Well done girls!
