WHEN it comes to sport, St Michael’s High School is proving it is top of the class.
Their Under-16 and Under-13 netball teams were crowned Lancashire Schools champions.
The rain held off, and despite the cold wind, the girls played some excellent netball.
Both teams were undefeated throughout the tournament which is a magnificent achievement.
Year 11 (Under-16) beat Longridge, All Hallows, St Wilfreds and others.
Year 8 (Under-13) beat St Augustines, Penwortham and others, to gain the title.
Claire Hooley, head of PE said: “We are immensely proud of all the girls who took part, from all years at school.
“Particularly Year 11, who have been runners-up previously, but managed to win it with their last ever games for the school.
“We are very grateful for all the support given by parents to give up their Saturday to cheer the girls on.”
The captain of the Under-16 side was Olivia D’Arcy, while the Under-13 team was skippered by Beth Jenks.
