Girls were on the right track last week, when Blackpool’s Stanley Park staged the annual athletics tournament for Fylde and Wyre schools.

Kirkham Grammar School gave the rest a run for their money in the 12-school competition, finishing first in three of the four age groups.

The exception was the Under-15s competition, in which Lytham St Annes Technology and Performing Arts College topped the table.

LSA were runners-up to Kirkham in the Under-14 and Under-17 categories, while St Aidan’s took second place to KGS at Under-13 level.

Carr Hill finished third overall in the eldest two age groups, with AKS taking third place at Under-14 and LSA at Under-13.

The event completed a highly successful athletics season for Kirkham GS.

The hurdlers were up first with some great results from Libby Baxter, Bo Madden, Gemma Eastham and Agatha Barker-Mill.

Out in the field, Alisha Amirkhani threw extremely well in the discus event as did Isabel Kane and Amy and Danni Merrick.

Beth Dowbiggin was champion in the Under-14s’ 1,500m, Ella Dowds was second in the Under-17s’ 800m with Mia Rodriguez and Eleanor Turner second and third in the Under-17s’ 1,500m.
