Carden’s talented athletics team competed in 1 of 4 rounds of the Brighton and Hove area indoor athletics competitions. The competition was made up of both Track and Field events which include events such as lap relay races, obstacle course, chest push and even a standing triple jump. The competition opened up with an exciting start with the Obstacle race the first race to compete in. Both the Boys and girls team took an impressive 2 place in both races. There was a great atmosphere as the team cheered each other along. Carden was finishing strong in all of the races but had an especially impressive show in both the boys and the girls 6 lap Paarlauf race both taking first place and the boys winning by almost a whole lap.
