Track : Obstacle relay, 1 plus 1 lap relay, 2 plus 2 lap relay, 6 lap paarlauf, over/under relay and 4 times 1 lap relay
The Putteridge team performed brilliantly in all events – they managed to win 8 out of the 12 track events, as well as scoring extremely well in the field events.
All the scores from each event were added together and Putteridge finished in 4th place – they have now qualified for the Town Sports finals which will be held in January at Inspire.
A huge well done to the athletics team and a big thank you to parents for their support.
