Excellent weather, healthy competition and a good deal of parental support all helped to make Sports Day at Lancaster Royal Grammar School a huge success.

It may be an intra-school event but there is a strong ‘rivalry’ between forms as teams battle it out to win the coveted title of Form Champions.

There were many fine individual performances as well as intense competition to win the Victor Ludorem in each year.

Some competitors took on as many as five events in their attempts to be recognised as the best all-round athlete in their year group.

Most notably Tom Bowe recorded a terrific time of 4mins 53.6 seconds to come within a whisker of the second year 1500 metres record.

Tom Fyfe’s second year discus throw of 28.7metres was a full seven metres ahead of the nearest competition.

The Victor Ludorem titles were won by Ethan Kidd (1st year), Theo Blakeney-Edwards (2nd year), Laurence Cheetham and Dominic Thompson (3rd year), and Daniel Ruscillo (4th year).

Perhaps the most consistent competitor on the day was first year Thomas Pyle who recorded no fewer than five second places, including the Victor Ludorem.
