22/06/17 - Sports Day 2017
Temperatures Soar and Records Tumble @ NHS Sports Day
Great weather accompanied by a great turnout from pupils made Sports Day 2017 a real success. What was really evident was the commitment and dedication all pupils showed to complete their events to the best of their ability to win bonus merits for their respective houses.
This was also a day when lots of long standing records were smashed:
Elle Corkey broke the Year 8 girls 800m record previously held by Aimee Henry in 2005.
Dylan McGurgan in Year 9 broke the discus record by Glen Hawthorne in 2009.
Ben Telford helped himself to two new school records on the day, beating Alex McNiece's 2016 Year 11 records by a whisker and in the 800m took down Lee Tower's record in 2009. Ben becomes the fastest pupil ever recorded in Newtownhamilton High!
Jessica Acheson broke Tanya Donaldson's Shot Putt record set in 2008.
Alex McNiece became the record holder for the 100m in Year 12 by beating Robin Smyth's 16 year record set in 2001.
Well done to all competitors on a very successful event!
