PUPILS at Webster’s High School have been catching the eye on the athletics field of late.
Having wiped the floor with the other Angus Schools in the S2 Giant Heptathlon (indoor athletics where the pupils compete as a team comprising of seven boys and seven girls over seven events), Webster’s qualified for the regional finals in Dundee.
There, they finished first equal with Baldragon from Dundee, to qualify for the national finals held at Grangemouth towards the end of last month.
Inspired by the performances of Jack George and Grace Eadie the Kirrie secondary amassed 84 points to take the bronze medal.
They were pipped for silver by St Andrew’s High School (North Lanarkshire) who scored 86, with the old medal going to Armadale Academy (West Lothian) with a credible 91 points.
Webster’s was represented by Dean Farquharson, Fraser Melrose, Ryan Douglas, Adam Flint, Chris Farrell, Jack George, Lewis Headridge, Rory Walker-Munro, Grace Eadie, Amelia Walker-Munro, Keira Durston, Louise Falconer, Rebecca Elder, Katie Phillips, Katie Anderson and Robyn Hill.
The school has also enjoyed resounding success in local athletics competition, winning five of the eight events in the Angus schools cross-country competition.
