Last week saw 25 cadets and 5 members of staff at the JCCS Stadium in Leeds for South and West Yorkshire Wings annual Inter-Sqn athletics competition. It was an early start for some cadets as we had to meet outside SQN HQ at 0745hrs ready to board the coach (even some members of staff could not get there in time).
218 Sqn once again thoroughly enjoyed the day and participated in as many events as possible and of course won the award for the loudest Sqn (as always!).
The Sqn did very well during the day coming out with 6 Gold medals, 4 Silver medals and 12 Bronze medals as well as winning the senior girls plaque and overall girls trophy.
Outlined below is who won what medal and for which sport:
- Cdt Darwin: Gold in 100 and 200 metres. Bronze for 4x100m relay
- FS Dovey: Gold in 800m, High Jump and Javelin
- Cdt Ward: Silver in Shot Putt
