Springbank's Indoor Athletics Team reach the city finals

The Farsley Springbank athletics team saw their exciting run in the indoor athletics competition come to an end with an impressive performance in the city finals at Leeds Trinity on Tuesday. The best of the best came together, with Springbank having won the Leeds West Area competition before Christmas, to go head to head in the University sports hall. A fiercely competitive set of teams slugged it out in all aspects of athletics with our Year 5's and 6's holding their own with a combination of blood, sweat and tears. The announcements at the end of the day were tense to say the least but when it came down to points we ultimately finished in third place, marginally missing out on progression to the final round of competition. This equalled our highest ever place finish and disappointment soon turned to pride when we realised the scale of our achievement; to put it into context, out of 250 schools in Leeds we can proudly say that we are now in the top six! This is undoubtedly an exceptional result. The athletics team now take a short spring break before returning to refocus efforts on retaining the Year 3-4 and 5-6 outdoor athletics crown at John Charles Centre for Sport in the summer.
