Once again, the annual South Ribble Athletics competition took place at Stanley Park, Blackpool. Priory pupils across Years 7-9 journeyed to the stadium on 21 June to battle it out on track and field against the eleven South Ribble schools. 

As well as achieving 3 golds, 6 silvers and 10 bronze awards, the three year groups also qualified for the finals of the girls and boys 100m, 200m and 300m sprint. 

Other pupils who narrowly missed out on the medals but deserve a mention were Cameron D (Y7) - 5th 800m, Thomas T (Y8) - 4th 100m and Dylan H (Y9) - 4th 300m.  Year 7 Joe W also competed in both 100m and 200m heats and finals - showing pure determination and courage throughout!

Priory finished the day in a very respectable 5th place out of all South Ribble schools. The pupils' effort, team work and sportsmanship was commendable - well done to all who took part!
