Lancashire Schools’ Athletics Championships
The Lancashire Schools’ Athletics Championships were held at the newly resurfaced Stanley Park athletics track in Blackpool on Saturday 10th June. Four pupils from Our Lady’s had entered into various events with each achieving a personal best in their event! Cameron began with the Long Jump and jumped 5.17m for a new personal best claiming 2nd place overall in his Intermediate Boys’ category. Lucy ran an excellent 200m race, just missing out on a podium position, finishing 4th but also claiming a new personal best of 30.1 seconds. It was then the turn of Will and George to race in the Intermediate Boys’ 1500m.
Both boys ran an extremely strong race with Will knocking 6 seconds off his previous personal best to achieve 4 minutes 48 seconds, while George ran a very impressive 4 minutes 15 seconds to secure a 3rd place finish and also a new personal best.
A tremendous achievement by those involved.
