Wentworth Stadium in Hexham hosted the 2018 Northumberland Schools Athletics Championships where some fantastic athletes from North Tyneside schools competed against schools from Tynedale, Newcastle, North Northumberland and East Northumberland, to win points for their region.
Lucy competed in the Y6 girls High Jump clearing 1m 5cm and Aoife made it through the heats to run in the Y6 girls 80m Final. Aoife was also part of the Y6 girls relay team who ran brilliantly to not only come in first place but take the event record which has stood since 1981! All North Tyneside athletes put in great performances for their region - and it was wonderful to see some ex-St. Mary’s pupils representing St. Thomas More Academy and performing well. The day ended with the points being totalled and North Tyneside finishing in 2nd place with a points total of 193. Well done to all these amazing young athletes - we are all extremely proud of you.
