Giant Heptathlon 2014

Report from Ms Simpson

The annual S1/2 Giant Heptathlon will be held on Thursday 20th February at Ravenscraig Sports Centre. Both a first and second year team will be representing Our Lady’s High School. Teams are made up of 14 pupils: 7 boys and 7 girls who all compete in all 7 events plus a relay at the end.

The events are:

  • 60m sprint
  • 60m hurdles
  • endurance challenge
  • step up challenge
  • shot putt
  • long jump
  • standing triple jump
  •  7x 60m relay

Individual scores are combined to get a total team score and the team with the highest score will be crowned the champions.

The teams from Our Lady’s High School have been attending training twice a week at lunch time for the last three weeks to prepare for this event and I am sure they will do Our Lady’s High School proud!  Good luck!
