The always exciting Sportshall Athletics competition didn’t disappoint as 7 Hyndburn schools were represented by their Year 5 and 6 athletes at Hyndburn Academy. The races were closely contested – spectating teachers and teammates cheered louder than ever as the students took part in the obstacle races and dramatic relays. There were outstanding numbers put up in the field events, especially in the long jump and triple jump and Baxenden deservedly took home the gold medals. The event was enjoyed throughout, and St Mary’s Clayton won gold for the small school category. It will be a nervy week as the winners await to find out the results from the St Christopher’s event which will decide who goes through to the County finals.
