Some of our finest athletes triumphed yesterday at the Bury Schools Championships at Bury Athletics Club. Ellie M (pictured) reigned supreme as the champion of the Year 8 and 9 girls’ shot put, and was narrowly beaten to 2nd place in the discus (beaten by only 7cm!).

They had a great day at the athletics championships and, according to PE teacher Mrs Z Carter, were fabulous and a credit to the school. Other results were as follows:

Abigail B – champion of y10 & 11 100m
Chloe B – 2nd place in y10 & 11 girls’ discus
Olivia T -3rd in year 8 & 9 girls’ javelin
Both y10 & y11 girls and y8 & y9 boys got through their heats into the 4x100m relay finals (y8 & y9 boys broke a track record in their heat)
Y10 & y11 girls got the bronze in their final, boys came 4th
Ryan W got an amazing personal best of 2.21 mins in 800m
