Despite the clouds, warm and dry conditions prevailed at this year’s Bridgnorth Endowed School Sports Day, which was held on Tuesday 2nd July.
Students put their best foot forward as they turned out to compete for the prized Sports Day Trophy under the banners of the school’s three houses.
Defending champions, Hardwicke, led by Head of House, Mr Middleton, were looking to fend off the challenge from Mr Hughes’ Washbrook and Mrs Tristham’s Rowley charges.
Cheers of encouragement could be heard across the school field as pupils from all year groups took part in a variety of sports, including traditional track and field events, archery, tug-of-war and more.
During the medal presentation, Year 7 student, Rosie Bryan, was awarded the Ben Roberts Trophy for sporting endeavour. She stepped in for the 800m and 1500m races at the last minute and her overall performance was a shining example of everything the prestigious trophy stands for.
Hardwicke were announced as the winners for the second year running and, as victors, their yellow house colours remain on the Sports Day Trophy until next time… Congratulations to everyone.
