Kirkham Grammar School girls were champions in every age group at the Blackpool and Wyre Championships at Stanley Park.

In the track heats, all the Kirkham girls qualified for the finals, the best possible start.

In the field KGS performed very well, with the majority of their girls finishing in the top three.

Emily Dignan jumped a personal best of 4.38 in the long jump.

In the track finals, Kirkham dominated again and in the hurdles KGSs finished first and second in every age group.

All their 100m sprinters finished in the top three.

Jess O’Neil won both the Under-17s 100m and 200m convincingly, Annalise Hughes was second in the Under-17s 100m, Rachel Greenwood won the 200m, Beth Everson and Sophie Warden were second and third in the Under-17s 300m to add to their second and first in the triple jump.

Charlotte McDonald won the Under-15s 300m, Sam Hollings won the Under-17 1,500m, Freyja Powell won the Under-14s 800m, Alyssia Dockerty won the Under-14s 1,500m, and every KGS relay team won convincingly.

Kirkham knew they had scored well but did not know how close it would be.

The first years won by 33 points, the second years by 26 points, the third years won by 31 points, both the fourth and fifth year teams won by 24 points.

It was the perfect end to a season which has seen more than 100 KGS girls involved in the athletics club.
