Sports Day 2018

“Just go for it” was the message from Loreto Grammar School's young sprinters at their annual sports day at Longford Park.

The Catholic Grammar School on Dunham Road, Altrincham, has unearthed a succession of county, regional and national stars over the last decade and is looking to the next generation on their conveyor belt.

Loreto's Head of Physical Education Catherine Ball said: “Our annual Sports Day is an essential element of that process. The whole school decamps to Longford Park for a fiercely competitive track and field competition cheered on by the girls and staff from the stands.”

Catherine said: “We celebrate sport for all and everyone enjoys the chance to compete on a special stage but we also celebrate, praise and encourage the winners.”

Ella Gillespie who flew down the home straight to lead home the team and competes for Sale Harriers said: “My ambition is to run for Great Britain like many of the girls at Loreto before me.” Aisling McHale, who led out the team, before passing smoothly to Verity and then on to Orla, added: “There's no secret, it's hard work and a positive attitude. Just go for it and block out the crowd.”
