On Tuesday 6th December 2016 the Bentley West Athletics Team were one of 2 schools to represent Willenhall at the Walsall Finals.
They were up against tough competition as all the schools had won their cluster tournament and were there to represent their area of Walsall.
Out of 6 teams Bentley West came 4th, narrowly missing out (by 6 points) on a top 3 finish and a chance to go the Black Country Games.
Although we are not through to the Black Country Games, we are extremely proud of the Athletics team who have came 4th overall out of approximately 30 schools in Walsall who took part.
Well done to everyone and thank you to Miss Broomhall, Miss Gregson, Mr Webb, Mr Broomhall and Mr Thomas for organising the event and for their support.

On Thursday 24th November 2016 the Year 5 and 6 Athletics Team took part in a competition at Willenhall E-Act Academy.
The team were against 4 other schools and they had to compete in many events including races, speed bounce, standing jump, triple jump and the sitting throw.
Throughout the competition every member of the team showcased their athletic talents and put everything they had into each race and event and it was fantastic to watch.
It was a close competition but we were able to come out on top and we finished in FIRST PLACE.
The team are now through to represent Willenhall in the Walsall finals.
Congratulations to all the children who took part and thank you to Miss Broomhall, Miss O'Rourke, Mr Webb, Mr Broomhall, Miss Gregson and the parents who came to watch and support the team.
