YEAR 8 INDOOR ATHLETES WIN SILVER IN GREATER MANCHESTER ROUND
A group of Year 8 athletes had a triumphant start to their sporting year as they won silver at the Greater Manchester round of the Under-13s Indoor Sports Hall Athletics on Thursday 11th January.
Catrin, Ane, Lauren, Ebube and Kizzy competed in track events including sprints and relays, as well as standing triple jump, long jump, shot put and speed bounce.
Seven schools took part in the competition which was eventually won by the hosts, St Peter’s RC High School.
Mrs Rowley, PE teacher at Manchester High School for Girls, commented: “The team, lead by Kizzy, performed very well in aspects of the competition, and they should be proud of their silver medal.
“This is a great start to 2018 and we have many other exciting athletics competitions ahead. We look forward to the Year 7 girls’ competition later this month and wish them the best of luck!”
