It was the Year 7 and 8 Bolton Athletics Championships last Tuesday. Once again, Sharples did themselves and the school proud showing superb effort and resilience on the day, with the majority of pupils achieving personal bests. Stand out performances on the day were by Isabelle Smith who reached the final and achieved a fantastic 5th place finish and was unlucky to miss out on a medal in the 100m. Leah Winstanley then produced an incredible performance to take Gold in the long jump. Overall, it was a thoroughly enjoyable day and all competitors should be proud of their achievements on the day.
