17th July 2017

More House were crowned Sports day 2017 champions on Friday 14th July one week after the events at Monkton Stadium had concluded. The delay in announcing the eventual Sport day result came about due to bad weather delaying outdoor throwing events like Discus and Javelin from taking place. In the end though More scored 1055 points over 4-days of competition comfortably outwitting its rivals by finishing 47 points above Percy House who came second.



The final results were as follows

1st MORE (Red) 1055pts

2nd PERCY (Yellow)  1008pts

3rd  CAMPION (Blue) 929pts

4th FISHER (Green)
