On Friday 7th June 27 pupils from Year 7-10 took part in the city athletics Championships at Wavertree Athletics Track.
23 schools entered the competition and I am delighted to announce that overall our school came 6th Year 7's ranked 5th overall, Year 9's came 9th and the Year 10's finished in 6th place. The standout year however was Year 8 finishing 2nd. It is a huge achievement to consistently be in the top 10 and nearly all top 5 of the schools in the city.
Whilst all the pupils who attended were fantastically well behaved and gave each event their all, there were some stand out athletes. Holy Ologbon in Year 8 won both the hurdles and the 100m, whilst Ella Radford in Year 10 won the 1500m and came 2nd in the 800m. Other medal winners included Femi Olushonde who claimed silver in Year 7 for the long jump as well as Fanta Sacko who took the bronze for Year 7 in the shot putt. In Year 8 the relay team which included Holy, Erin Brown, Olivia Seasman and Luci Hollis came third overall, in some horrendous weather conditions and Luci also claimed 3rd place in her individual event of javelin. Amy Miller in Year 8 took silver in the Discus. In Year 9 Emma Kelly won silver in the 200m, whilst Melissa Kays in Year 10 also won silver in the javelin.
It was a fantastic day in spite of weather and the pupils showed their unbelievable sporting talents in a variety of events.
