A very wet day was had by all at the ISA Midlands athletics in Birmingham on Wednesday 17 May. This did not affect our athletes in any way and the event was a huge success for us as a school in terms of our organisation and success in track and field.The highlights were as follows:Jared Cutler Midlands champion year 10/11 in boys 1500 metresChloe Vinestock Midlands champion year 10/11 in girls Long JumpRobin Thiele Midlands champion year 7 in both boys Javelin & Shot-puttJames Curtis Midlands Champion year 7 in boys DiscusDan Kennedy Midlands champion year 7 in boys High Jump

There were a total of 21 schools participating from all over the Midlands area and Dixie finished 3rd place in the Year 7 boys and year 7 girls competition’s respectively. Our Midlands Champions will now go on to represent the Midlands at the ISA National athletics finals at the Alexander Stadium on Monday 19 June. A huge well done to all pupils involved.
