Proof again that for a smaller school Rye punches well above its weight in many arenas. On the Friday 19 May 2017, Rye competed in the English Schools Athletics competition.
The main highlights were Chanel Sarushi 1st in shot put, Bel Wilson 1st in long jump, Annabel Gracey 3rd in 200m sprint, Felicity Clark 3rd in 800m, Georgie Bristow 1st in 75m hurdles. Georgie Bristow, Annabel Gracey, Maddie Shell and Bel Wilson also won the 4 x 100m relay, thrashing all the other schools including Headington, Oxford High and St Helen and St Katharine. Overall, Rye came 5th in the competition, it was a very successful day. Well done Rye!
