Square Races 3rd May

Comments are closed.

This year’s annual House Square Races were held in cool, dry conditions after lessons on Wednesday 3rd May.

There are six races in all, for boys and girls in three age categories from Years 7 to 13, and each is a 4 lap relay race around the outside of the main school building – a total distance of just over one mile.

Mention should be made of the Leetham Intermediate boys (4:20) and Senior Boys (4:06) teams who came within 8 and 6 seconds respectively of the record times. Indeed, the Leetham House team as a whole dominated the event, winning five of the six races.

The final results were as follows:

1st        Leetham         16 points towards the House Shield

2nd       De Lisle           12

3rd       Emery               8

4th       Arundel            4

Square Races in their current form have been held each year since 1990-91.
