Hamstel's Sprint to Victory: A Jump Above the Rest!

 In a remarkable display of talent and teamwork, Team Hamstel shone brightly at the KS1 Quad Kids event. Eight dedicated young athletes represented the school, competing fiercely in four challenging events: the 50m sprint, standing long jump, mini hurler throw, and a 300m run. Points were awarded based on performance in each event, and the team's collective effort led them to an outstanding victory.

The event kicked off with the 50m sprint, where the young sprinters displayed their speed. Didi led the team with an impressive 9.2 seconds, followed closely by Kevin and Chase, both clocking in at 9.3 seconds, and Max at 10.2 seconds. In the second round, Harper matched these performances with a quick 9.3 seconds, Hanna ran 9.8 seconds, Sienna 9.6 seconds, and Amelie 10.7 seconds.

Next was the standing long jump, where Max soared to 1.76m, marking the furthest jump among his teammates. Chase also made a strong showing with 1.66m, while Didi and Kevin landed at 1.55m and 1.54m, respectively. Harper then led the next group with 1.6m, Hanna jumped 1.53m, Sienna 1.51m, and Amelie 1.25m.

In the mini hurler throw, Kevin demonstrated exceptional strength with a throw of 21.85m, the furthest among our children. Didi followed with 17.58m, Chase with 14.24m, and Max with 12.78m. In the next heat, Harper threw 12.38m, Amelie 11.77m, Hanna 10.58m, and Sienna 7.26m.

After a well-deserved lunch break, the team returned for the final event, the 300m run. Chase led the team with the fastest time of 1 minute and 1 second. Didi and Harper both completed the run in 1 minute and 2 seconds. Kevin clocked in at 1 minute and 5 seconds, Max and Sienna at 1 minute and 9 seconds, Hanna at 1 minute and 12 seconds, and Amelie at 1 minute and 14 seconds.

As the results were announced, excitement filled the air. Harper earned a well-deserved 3rd place among the seventy two girls competing, a testament to her incredible effort and skill. The anticipation grew as the overall team positions were revealed, starting from 18th place. When Team Hamstel was announced as the first-place winners, the joy and pride were clear to see from the children, staff and families. This incredible achievement highlighted the dedication, hard work, and sportsmanship of all the young athletes. The achievement was even more special as it is the first time ever Hamstel had won this event.

Team Hamstel's victory at the KS1 Quad Kids event is a shining example of what can be achieved through perseverance and teamwork. Congratulations to all the participants for their outstanding performances and for bringing home the victory for our school!
