On Thursday 12th May the Junior and Inter athletics squads travelled to the K2 to compete in the District Championships. After some fantastic performances in local District meets recently, hopes were high for all squads to do very well and they did not disappoint, with the Junior Boys and Junior Girls both fantastically finishing the meet as District Champions.

Success overall came from both Junior squads consistently achieving high finishes in both track and field over the course of the day, with every individual managing to contribute a high number of points towards the team totals. An impressive number of first and second place finishes were achieved in both the track and field: David George-Kalu (1st in high jump and 2nd in long jump), Amelia Watson (1st in shot and 2nd in hurdles), Catherine Lewis-Orr (1st in high jump), Jack Carter (1st in discus), Abi Horsfall (2nd in 100m), George Thomas (2nd in 1500m), Tyler Green (2nd in 300m), Hannah Williams (2nd in 800m), Ben Brown (2nd in 800m) and Lottie McDonald (2nd in javelin). The meet ended with the 4x100m relays, with big points available to the winners. After both teams (Junior Girls: Wright, Watson, Horsfall, Hudson; Junior Boys: George-Kalu, Carter, Robertson and T.Green) absolutely smashed their races - winning by impressively significant distances - victory was assured. The Junior Boys have now achieved District Champion status for two consecutive years and the girls are District Champions after having worked very hard over the past three seasons to finally and deservedly win this title.

The Inter Boys and Inter Girls finished 3rd and 5th respectively, with notable performances from Callie Watson (1st in Javelin), Leon Blatch (1st in javelin), Koni Dzavaryan (2nd in Javelin), Will Driscoll (2nd in 1500m), Ben Oliver (2nd in 400m) and Kamen Kyutchukov (2nd in triple jump).

On the back of these amazing performances, twenty two Caterham pupils were selected to represent for South Surrey. This is by far the most from any school in the area and is testament to the superb talents and dedication of our pupils.

Very well done to everyone who competed and represented Caterham so brilliantly well.
