148 (Barnsley) Squadron

148 Squadron at Wing Athletics!

On Saturday 7th May 2022, 148 Barnsley Squadron competed at inter-wing athletics at South Leeds Stadium. When we got there it was cold but gradually warmed up as the day went on. The day started off with heats for the 100 and 200 metre sprints which went amazing as everyone qualified for the finals. After, people who signed up to field events went when they were called. The most fun part of the day was when it came to the relays. Under 17 boys and junior women both won gold with amazing sprints.

At the end, we formed up for final parade so teams were presented awards for each category. The most important part of the day was when everyone was cheering for their teammates. Especially Cdt Harris who almost lost her voice. The squadron was very proud of everyone as it was the first athletics competition for years due to covid. We had an amazing comeback, finishing 8th overall out of 22 squadrons which is an awesome achievement. Everyone enjoyed the day and all went home proud to represent their squadron. 

Thank you to the staff that went with us and cheered for us throughout the day. Overall, 148 took home many gold medals and the day was a triumph for all.
