Athletics Team 2nd in Lancashire!!
14 March 2018
A few months ago our Year 8 indoor athletics teams attended the South Ribble competition. Our boys won the competition and our girls finished runners up. Both teams progressed to the Lancashire finals held in Blackpool on Wednesday 7th March.
The Lancashire event is attended by the strongest athletics schools from across the County with some fantastic talent on display.
Both our boys and girls teams took part in the various running and field events scoring points along the way.
Our girls team did really well, being at the Lancashire finals for the first time and managed to finish 10th overall which they should be proud of.
Our boys performed brilliantly and at the end we were all amazed and overjoyed when they were announced as runners up and only a few points off the gold medal! To be 2nd in Lancashire and have their silver medals is a fantastic achievement and one they should all be very proud of. A very talented team.
A special thank you to Mr O'Neill, our sports apprentice, who gave up his time to train and practice with both the teams and will have definitely contributed to the success.
Well done to all.
