Well done to the girls and boys who represented the academy in the finals. The top 8 teams qualified out of 20 schools.
The teams finished 6th and 7th respectively. Athletics in Manchester breeds many undiscovered athletes, many who could go on to achieve great things, most of them don’t outside of the school events. So the level of ability is outstanding.
Individual top placing went to;
MARCEL QUINTINO- 800 METRE CHAMPION.
BRANDON WILLIAMS 3RD- 60METRES
Girls RELAY TEAM- ISMAT, PHOEBE, ELLIE ANDREWS AND OSASU.
PHOEBE – 2ND IN SHOT PUTT.
All were great, big shout out to Rhys Parker in yr 7 who showed great talent in the high jump and would have won a medal but wanted another yr 7 boy to compete in this event (he finished 6th) because Rhys is very versatile and the other boy could only do the high jump. It brought a lump to my throat when he said it doesn’t matter if he doesnt get a medal! Not many like Rhys about!
We are hoping that Marcelo, Ishmat , Phoebe and Mckenzie and Rhys in yr 7 will seriously consider joining an athletics club out of school as they have great talent.
All the MCMA Athletes.
