The AKS Girls athletics teams were in action again with the Year 8 and 9 teams competing in the Fylde & Wyre Championships. The wet and cold conditions put pay to any school records but there were many good performances both on the track and in the field.
Pride of place goes to Year 9 Sophie B who was crowned Fylde & Wyre Champion when she won the Year 9 200m in a time close to her best, 29.3s. Rebecca H just missed out on top spot with her throw of 17.93m in the Year 9 discus earning her second place and Hannah T also finished second in the Year 8 75mHurdles with a time of 14.2s. In the same event Hattie R ran a season’s best of 14.7 to claim 5th position in the final. Jenny D finished strongly in another well paced 800m to claim 3rd spot whilst Ruby W’s throw of 17.07m in the Year 8 discus and Farrah D’s throw of 17.69m in the Year 9 Javelin also claimed 3rd place.
Nyah H (HJ 1.20m) and Hannah T ( LJ - 3.86m) jumped well in the very difficult conditions to both finish in fourth place while Ellie S scored points in both the Javelin, 6th 14.01m, and long jump 3.52 8th. Sally Dawson in her first outing over 300m finished in a competitive time of 54.1s to pick up points in 6th place. Mille D jumped 3.80m in long jump for 6th spot while Lucy P high jumped 1.14m (8th) and Mia W jumped 1.14m to place 7th in the Year 8 HJ.
The Year 8 team performed well as a team and scored an impressive 45points to finish 3rd school overall with the Year 9 7th with 29 points.
