Schools athletics competition

Samworth Church Academy hosted a primary school indoor athletics competition.

Abbey, Berry Hill, Wynndale and Oak Tree primary schools took part at the Mansfield senior school. Oak Tree won ahead of Berry Hill.

Tanna Nita, Mansfield Youth Mayor and student at Samworth, said: “All the kids involved with the athletics day put in a lot of effort, both the ones who took part and the ones running it.

“The primary kids always get excited when it comes to the races because they’re all competitive. When their friends are competing they all scream and shout and it becomes a competition of who can shout the loudest, which motivates the runners, especially when it’s a close race.”

David Hunt, who organised the event, said it was a success.
