Every pupil from from Market Deeping Community, Spaldings’s Monkshouse, St Norbert’s and St John’s, Holbeach Fleet Wood Lane and Whaplode competed in one running, one throwing and one jumping event.

All the track events (80m, 150m and 400m) had heats in the morning with only the best six going through to the finals in the afternoon. In the field, schools competed in long jump, triple jump, javelin and quoit throw.

While not competing, there was a chance for all pupils to measure their top speed running using a speed radar, test their endurance with speed bounce and then, in keeping with the World Cup measure the speed of their penalty shots.

School Games organiser Rupert Gibson, from Agilitas Sports, thanked Russ Prosser and Tony Harker from Nene Valley Harriers for helping and Lee Farrell from Spalding High for his work preparing the leaders.

Winners were Market Deeping, with Fleet Wood Lane second, St Norbert’s third, St John’s fourth, Monkshouse fifth and Whaplode sixth.
