Well done to the 9 students from AGGS who competed in the Manchester year 7 indoor athletics competition at Sports City this week. Some great performances showing some future potential. There were 18 teams at the competition; our squad came a respectable 6th.
Well done to Tara who came 2nd in the long jump.
Looking forward to seeing these athletes grow and strengthen ready for the English Schools Competitions next year.
The Year 9 and 10 swimming team entered the English Schools national swimming competition before half term and were very successful.
They competed in both the freestyle and medley relay and won a bronze medal in the medley relay with a fantastic time. This means that they were the third best medley team in the North West. Congratulations to:
Laura, Emily S, Emily C, Christabel A, Lucy R, Katie H
AGGS are the Manchester Schools Indoor Athletics Champions.
Friday 13th October – 8 Athletes from AGGS set off to Sports City in Manchester for the Indoor Athletics Championships. Each athlete competed in one event each and there were some excellent individual performances.
Alice D was the star of the day winning a gold medal in the girls 300m with an impressive time of 44.62seconds.
Silver medals were awarded to Maddie L in the 60m hurdles, Laura H in the 800m and Kitty H in the shot putt.
Emma S jumped an impressive 4m42cm in the long jump winning a bronze medal.
Mary W and Annie C ran in the 60m and 200m respectfully and both just missed out on medals by a few seconds. Millie P also had an excellent performance in the high jump sadly missing the medal mark by just a few cm.
The relay team (Emma, Mary, Annie and Alice) also came 4th in the girls 4x200m relay in a very fast competitive finish to the day.
With points being totted up it was very close between AGGS, St Peter’s and Trinity. However, with 199 points AGGS were presented with the winners trophy claiming first place over all.
All competitors were year 10 so will have another shot at retaining the trophy next year. Can they do the double?
