ATHLETICS

MORE than 80 Island schoolchildren had a successful time at the Hampshire Games in Aldershot.

The annual event attracts thousands of youngsters from across the region, who do battle in a wide range of sports. Success for the IW came in the golf, where Greenmount Primary won bronze medals, and in cycling, Sandown Bay Academy took the gold.

In addition, the IW were also part of the event’s first girls’ football tournament, and despite having only six of the allocated squad of ten able to travel, the girls came fifth.

They enjoyed every minute and their respect for fellow competitors and officials earned them the fair play award.
