Witton Park Athletics

On the Monday 20th June, we participated in the BPSSA Athletics Junior Competition which took place at Witton Park Track. This event involved 32 junior schools across the Blackburn & Darwen Borough and we invited 30 children to take part in the games. There were many events in the competition which included, sprint race, sprint relay, long distance run, jumping and throwing.


All the children performed very well in their particular event and we were among the medals in a couple of events.


Winning Gold in her 80m sprint event was Ellie-Mai Drury, who ran superbly well and blew her opponents away finishing first by a distance. WELL DONE!!!!!


Ellie-Mai was among the medals again by helping the Year 5/6 Girls win silver in the 80m sprint relay race. The other girls involved were Abigail Faller, Sophie Wignall and Jorja Corkin. GREAT EFFORT!!!!


Winning Bronze in her Cricket Ball Throw event was Lana Riley, throwing an impressive throw and only losing out on the Gold medal by centimetres, very unlucky but WELL DONE!!
