CMS Athletics Day biggest yet

Cambridge Middle School held their annual school Athletics Day at the Cambridge Athletics Grounds on Vogel St for the first time this year.

With the student roll at its biggest yet, the school had to hold the event at the new location on Thursday last week to cater for the larger student numbers, and it seemed to go down a treat as evident by the cheers heard and smiles seen throughout the day.

A few events and finals had to be carried over to the following week, so at the time of going to print we weren’t able to include the full results from the event, so keep an eye out in the Cambridge News to find out.
