Seven teams from across the Ipswich and South Suffolk School Games area competed in a Sportshall Athletics event at Westbourne College.

Each team had a minimum of nine boys and nine girls and a maximum of 15 boys and 15 girls so the event proved to be a lively and noisy spectacle.

The event was made up of a mixture of field events including standing long jump, standing triple jump, chest push, javelin and speed bounce and then a series of track events, including an obstacle relay, one, two and six lap races and a team relay.

Both events were run for boys and girls, and when the girls were competing in field events, the boys took to the track.

Standings:- 1st Britannia (260 points), 2nd - Gorseland (250 points)

Both teams will go forward to represent Ipswich and South Suffolk at the Level 2 [county] school games finals on February 5 at Mid Suffolk Leisure centre
