Anthony Bek pupils- County Champions March 2016!
For the first time in any sport in the schools’ history, pupils from Anthony Bek Primary School in Pleasley, Mansfield have become Derbyshire COUNTY champions!
The Y5/6 Sportshall team (pictured below) represented the Bolsover District at the County final, which took place at Derby University Sports centre on Tuesday.
Our aim for the competition was to achieve 3rd place. Competing at county level is not easy and we knew our competitors would be fierce. When they announced 4th place and it wasn’t us we were overjoyed- we knew we had achieved our goal. When we heard a different school announced for 3rd place and then 2nd place we were dumbfounded. To achieve 1st place is a dream come true- tears of joy were shed by all.
Officials at the competition were particularly impressed by the children’s achievements in the field events where they each beat their own personal bests for their events.
