Lancashire District Athletics Competition


Running, jumping, throwing and fast competition were the challenges faced by our year 7 and 8 indoor athletics teams during the Lancashire District Athletics Competition on Wednesday 7th December.

Having not experienced this event before and with minimum practice, the year 7 team were proud to represent their school at this annual event, gave maximum effort and showed great team spirit. Leah Routledge was our year 7 star,  competing in 4 events one after another and refusing to give up! There was also some fabulous results from Ellie Thompson in the vertical jump, triple jump and speed bounce.

Year 8 had another successful year of competition with some great throwing from Emma Hobson, running from Erin Smales and jumping from Grace Worrall all achieving new PB records.  

We netted a few wins in the races but the competition was fierce from all the local secondary schools. The final score at the end of the competition was year 7 with 244 and year 8 with 256.

A huge well done to all the girls involved we are proud of your commitment, dedication and resilience!
