Today's Borough Sports' competition, an outdoor athletics event at Norman Green Track at Tudor Grange Sports' Centre, attracted over 20 schools this year, with Greswold being grouped with 7 other large schools.
Each competitor had to participate in a throwing event (Javelin or Shot Putt), jumping event (Standing Triple Jump or running Long Jump) and a running event (75m sprint or 600m) with 8 other pupils making up the final event of the 300m relay.
Despite a heavy 30 minute downpour, the Greswold team, consisting of 12 Y6 boys and 12 Y6 girls, competed admirably against some very tough opposition.
These were some of the stand out Greswold performances during the day:
Silver medal in Boys' Long Jump
Gold medal in Boys' Shot Putt
Bronze medal in Boys' Long Jump
Bronze medal in Boys' 600m
Gold medal in Boys' Standing Long Jump
Gold medal in Girls' 75m sprint
Silver medal in Boys' 4x75m relay
Bronze medal in Girls' 4x75m relay

1st - Solihull School
2nd - Dorridge
3rd - Greswold
4th - Monkspath
