Shield

1.97 07.07.14

All eyes were on James Taylor, seen here clearing the bar in the Senior High Jump, on Sports Day.  James recently broke our longest standing School athletics record with a jump of 1.97 metres at the County Championships a couple of weeks ago:  could he go higher?  The previous record of 1.96 metres held by Simon Timson and was set 25 years ago in 1989.

Sadly, on a very blustery day and on a grass run-up, the task proved too much and James had to be satisfied with winning the competition with a jump of 1.90 metres.
