Histon & Impington Brook and Harston & Newton Primary Schools defended their trophies at the South Cambs School Sports Partnership Quadkids Athletics competition at the Cambridge University’s Wilberforce Road Sports Ground.

Twenty-eight primary schools took part in the event after an enforced three-year hiatus, with the day split for ‘small schools’ and ‘big schools’.

The structure of the competition sees five boys and five girls from each team take part in a 75m sprint, 600m run, long jump and vortex howler throw, with individual performances scoring points to contribute to their team’s total.

Histon & Impington Brook won the Big Schools competition with 1,652 points, with the University of Cambridge Primary in second with 1,561 and Linton Heights in third with 1,551.

The Small Schools section was won by Harston & Newton with 1,624. Great Abington were the runners-up, and Castle Camps were third.

A team of students from the partnership’s successful leadership academy from Swavesey and Cambourne Village Colleges helped at both competitions to lead the events, scoring and act as team managers.

Claire McDonnell, South Cambs SSP manager, said: “It was great to be back holding this event again. It has always been a really popular competition with schools and the children love competing at the track and getting to use such amazing facilities. We had a good turn out of parents as well which adds a bit of atmosphere for the running events and spurs the children on.

“There were some excellent performances on the day so congratulations to all our winners and well done to everyone who took part.

“As always, we have to thank the sports leaders who organised and scored the events for us, they did a great job and we couldn’t have run the event without them.”
