Year 8/9 Girls Athletics

What a fantastic day we had yesterday! The Year 8/9 girls combined athletics team travelled to the regional sports arena at Sport City to compete in an open meeting, which was invitation only hosted by Sale Harriers Athletics Club. The afternoon saw talented athletes from a number of schools across Manchester; AGGS, Manchester High for Girls, Withington and many more, compete in a number of events. Individually our girls performed outstanding. 2nd in the 100m, 3rd in the 200m, 300m and 800m, 2nd in the relay and 3rd in the javelin as well as finishing in the top 5 in high jump, long jump and shot put. At the end of the competition all schools gathered together to await the overall team results. Overall, the Year 8/9 combined team finished in a phenomenal 1st place out of 19 schools bringing home the trophy!! The girls deserve it so much and I couldn’t be prouder. Well done!
