Ark Blacklands Town Sports Success

Ark Blacklands Town Sports Success

On Friday nearly 60 children from years 5 and 6 (including one from year 4) took part in Hasting’s Town Sports.  The children competed in athletic field events including: javelin, shot putt, discus, long jump and triple jump.  As well as this they also took part in a number of hard fought sprint and middle distance events.

Blacklands’ girls were particularly strong this year taking the girls’ trophy for the 6th year running! In a hard fought contest the boys narrowly edged out Silverdale to win the boys’ shield by just one point! Blacklands secured the overall Town Sports trophy for the 6th year in a row.

Many Town Sports’ records were broken this year, including two by Blacklands’ children! Congratulations to all the children who took part and supported each other throughout the day!
