Over the last few weeks, St. Mary’s students have competed in a number of Athletics meetings, which culminated in the Leeds Schools Athletics Competition finals at South Leeds Stadium.

Our Junior Girls and Intermediate Girls teams both qualified for the event.

Following a number of outstanding performances, we are delighted to announce that the Intermediate Girls team finished second in Leeds.  With over 32 teams initially entered into the competition, this is an outstanding result.

The Junior Girls also performed admirably and finished in fifth place.

“It has been an absolute pleasure working with such a talented and hardworking set of athletes. Their dedication and hard work has paid off, successfully achieving second place in the Intermediate Girls section and fifth place in the Junior Girls section. 32 secondary schools entered the competition from across Leeds which demonstrates the talent of athletes we have here at St. Mary’s. I look forward to working with the team next season and have plans for a big winter training schedule, aiming for first place next season!”
