North West Regional Athletics Final - Sun 25th March|
Broughton Athletes reach new heights
This year, as a school we entered the Under 11 Boys’ and Girls’ Lancashire Sportshall Athletics League. There were three meets on Sun 12th Nov 2017, Sun 14th Jan 2018 and Sun 25th Feb 2018. It has been well documented how we won both the Under 11 Boys and Girls Leagues after the three meetings, as we had won all three from both categories at each meeting. At the end of the three meetings, the Lancashire coaches (not me) select a team to represent Lancashire Under 11 Boys and Girls at the North West Finals Day at Sportscity, Manchester. Well, they have selected 30 children overall (15 boys and 15 girls). We, at Broughton have had ten children selected for the meeting on Sunday 25th March. That is one third of the whole team. What an achievement this is from just one primary school. Just another fillip for our wonderful and again a testament to the fabulous hard work and dedication of our children to reach this level. I would love to pass on my heartfelt congratulations to the following superstars who have made the final cut. They are: Eleanor Andrews, Jessica Anderson, Tilly Bray, Eva Murray, Grace Willingale, Bayla-Rose Smart, Thomas Aldridge, Jacob Mason and Lewis Simpson. As you can see, there are only 9 children mentioned here. I feel it necessary to reserve a special mention for the final child selected. That is Alex Latham. I do this as she is only in Year 4, two whole years younger than the majority of her fellow competitors. What an achievement. Huge congratulations to all as you fully deserve this magnificent opportunity from Mr. Bird. I am soooo proud of them, they deserve all the glory :-).
