On Wednesday 22nd March, the Year 7 Sportshall Athletics Team travelled to Blackpool Sports Centre in the Lancashire County Finals to represent South Ribble. The girls competed in track and field events against winners from all the other areas around Lancashire with 14 different schools competing. The girls have been practicing really hard over the past few months and it certainly paid off. It was quite nerve-wracking performing in front of so many other schools but the team really did do us proud.
We finished in 7th place out of 14 which is a fantastic achievement in a County competition!
The girls are already looking forward to progressing further in summer Athletics after Easter and we can’t wait to watch them develop and hopefully be back in the Sportshall Athletics County Finals as Year 8s next year.
Massive well done and congratulations to the whole team – Jasmine, Esther, Isabelle, Darcey, Phoebe, Boadicea, Chloe and Ida.
