Teams from ten schools from across the area battled it out in various races and different throwing and jumping events at the Lincolnshire South East Sportshall Athletics.

The competition forms part of the Sainsbury’s School Games, which seeks to increase competition, participation and leadership in sport. Sainsbury’s School Games competitions take place weekly in the region.

The games also focus on six Spirit of the Games Values: honesty, teamwork, respect, self-belief, passion and determination.

School Games organiser Rupert Gibson, from Agilitas Sports, said: “I was delighted these values were seen in abundance, especially passion and determination.”

Rupert thanked Spalding High School which not only hosted the event but provided 14 Sports Leadership students to act as officials.

Rupert added: “They did an outstanding job.”

Results were: Holbeach St Marks (11th), Gedney Drove End (10th), Spalding Primary (9th), St Johns (8th), Weston Hills (7th), Bourne Abbey B (6th), Moulton John Harrox (5th), Linchfield (4th), Langtoft (3rd), Bourne Abbey A (2nd), Bourne Westfield (1st).

Bourne Westfield and Weston Hills will hopefully go on to represent the area as the winning large and small schools at the County Competition in March.
