Indoor Athletics

We were invited to compete in the Manchester Schools’  Indoor Athletics competition last Friday for the first time in its 5 year history.  There was a limited number of events (800m, 300m, 200m, 60m, 60mH, HJ, LJ, shot putt and 4x200m relay) and competitors were limited to one event plus the relay. Manchester Schools are traditionally very strong in athletics but our year 10 girls gave a very good account of themselves against tough competition – most notably Lizzy 2nd place in 300m and Lizzie 3rd place in LJ. The team finished in 8th position but we were hindered slightly by being one competitor short on our team due to injuries and last minute withdrawals. Massive thanks to Lizzy, Lizzie, Georgina, Mollie, Maddie, Laura and Anna. image
