Great Year for St Bridget's Athletics!!

Congratulation to our Year 5 and 6 athletics squad on a fantastic season!

They began the year back in October by winning the Wirral Schools Indoor Sportshall Athletics Competition.  As a result of this, they represented the county at the North West finals, where they were placed sixth.

They then went onto win the Wirral Schools Outdoor Quadkids competition in May against some very stiff competition. 

This qualified them to represent the County once again, at the Merseyside Youth Games on the 5th July at Wavertree Sports Park.  They competed against teams from the best schools in Halton, Sefton, Knowsley, Liverpool and St. Helens.  After some amazing performances, we had to wait a long time for the results to be collated and to our surprise we found out that we had won the gold medals and were crowned Champions of Merseyside!

 

Top Performance by Year 4 Squad

Our Year 4 team competed at the Oval Bebington as part of National Schools Sports Week celebrations in the Quadkids Athletics Tournament against 26 other teams.  There was a great show of strength on the track and the team were delighted to be crowned Wirral Quadkids Champions!

 

Year 2 Squad

The future looks bright for St Bridget's athleticsafter an outstanding display of talent from our youngest squad who competed at the same event as our Year 4 children,  They took part in a range of activites including: Vortex Throw, Long Jump and Speed Bounce.
