Leeds Schools’ Athletics Finals July 2019

The St. Mary’s Intermediate Girls’ Athletics Team became the champions of Leeds last night, winning the Leeds Schools’ Athletics Association finals.

Athletics champions: a fantastic achievement!

36 secondary schools from across the city started the competition which, through qualifying, was narrowed down to the best eight schools to take part in the finals at South Leeds Stadium. Competing against GSAL, Carr Manor, Corpus Christi, Morley, Woodkirk, Guiseley and Abbey Grange, the girls were awesome on the night and were quite literally run away leaders by the time the competition finished.

Many congratulations to Abigail Price, Daisy Tarbett, Eva Curran, Sophie McIlroy, Charlotte Kenneth, Natasha Marucci and Rachel McCormack.


“This has been another outstanding season for our inter-girls’ athletics team. Their results epitomise a thorough team performance with every single athlete making highly valuable contributions throughout the entire competition. It was a privilege to see all the girls hard work and dedication pay off with the Leeds Athletics Championship title. They have represented themselves and St. Mary’s magnificently, both on and off the track. We look forward to next year’s athletics season with excitement and anticipation to see if we can replicate this level of performance.”
