Once again Willenhall Wolves have demonstrated their superiority when it comes to sportshall athletics with a breathtaking display to win the Coventry East final. Beating Manor Park by some 65 points, this is the 4th straight county final the Wolves have reached and are looking to improve on their highest ever finsh off 4th. The athletes will travel to the Coventry sports centre on Monday the 24th of March to compete against the best athletes from across Warwickshire. The day was thoroughly enjoyable with many parents turning up to watch their Wolves run, jump and throw their way to success. The school hopes to have many more parents turn up and cheers the team on.
A few school records were smashed on the way to the final:
Ashley - Triple Jump - 5.80m
Ashley - Long Jump - 2.10m
Loarda - Triple Jump - 5.30m
Yannick - Vertical Jump -52cm
Sam - Chest Push - 9.5m
Despite the success the day was left with one moment of upset as sprint ace kaseyleigh fell and broke her arm during the 6 lap Paarlauf however, she ran the last lap and went on to win the event before leaving the competition to go to hospital. Kaseyleigh showed courage and determination beyond her years to pick herself up and run in agony in order to give her team a victory they needed. The whole school is immensly proud of you Kasey.

In the semi final we played against Corpus Christie and won 2-0 Charlie and Corey scoring the goals.
This set up a final against Aldermans Green. They were tough competition but we won 1-0 to reach the county final in March. Not only were the Junior Wolves the winners, they also boasted a defence SO strong that no one scored a goal against them all day.
