Megan Ascough ( year 11) and Frances Parker (year 9) both took part in the recent West Yorkshire School Championships. Both students did fantastically well.
Megan Ascough participated in the hammer throw event and threw an incredible 46.03m. This saw Megan qualify for the English Schools Championship to be held in Gateshead on the 8th July. The qualifying distance was 45m. Megan also competed at the Trafford Championships recently and achieved a new PB of 47.57m.
As you may recall Frances Parker came 2nd in the Bradford Schools Athletics Championships last month, jumping 4.13m just 2cm behind the overall winner. This competition saw Frances achieve a new PB of 4.29m and seek revenge on the competitor that beat her in the Bradford Schools Competition. Frances came 2nd in this championship and just missed out on qualifying for the English Schools competition. The progress Frances has achieved over the past few weeks has been immense.
