Well done to the Y8s and 9s who competed in the Manchester Invitation Athletics Competition on Friday at Eastlands Arena. It was the first time that we have entered this competition and it did not disappoint. Both the boys and girls teams competed against 16 other schools from the Manchester Area in both track and field events. Well done to Reilly Carson and Max Lowery who were both crowned the 800m champions, Connie Potts who took Bronze in the 300m, Josh Jennings who took bronze in the 60m hurdles and the girls relay quartet; Lola Fellone, Tolu Akinnajayo, Katie Burke and Connie Potts who took bronze in a hotly contested sprint final. It was a great afternoon for BGS to display our talents and compete against tough opposition. The afternoon was topped off with BGS spotting former pupil Abigail Irozuru who completed in the long jump at the Athletics World Championships who wished us the best of luck for the competition and posed for a few photos!
