On Tuesday 27th February 2018 our year 7/8 boys indoor athletics team went to Kirkby High to compete in the annual Knowsley Indoor Athletics Championships. Once again it was a well-attended event with every school from the district represented and there was a electric atmosphere throughout. The evening started with the track events, with The Prescot School more than holding their own against the larger schools from the borough, winning some of the races and all done in a fantastic spirit. Next was the field events including speed bounce, standing high, triple, long jump as well as the shot putt with some outstanding performances from the boys.
The award ceremony was a tense affair as no one could really guess which teams would progress to the Merseyside finals. The results were read out in reverse order, with Prescot eventually coming runners up, only 4 points (the difference of two places in an event) behind the winners but making it through to represent Knowsley in the Merseyside finals for the first time in 10 years. A fantastic performance, and good luck to our team in the finals.
Congratulations to our team; Michael (captain), Declan, Daniel, Richie, Euan, Will, Liam and Kevin.
