Having competed throughout the day on Friday the 5th of February, the Hazlehead Team came out winners of the annual ACC Giant Heptathlon.
The Giant Heptathlon comprises of 8 events including running, throwing and jumping. Seven girls and seven boys compete as a team within each event and their best scores are added together to give a final team event score, so every athlete’s score really does count. At the end of 7 events the teams then have to compete head to head in a relay race that is double weighted in points.
The Hazlehead team worked fantastically well together, supporting and motivating their teammates in order to achieve the best possible result. That result ended up putting Hazlehead Academy at the top of the leader board as the Giant Heptathlon came to a close.
