Molly and Gracie made a huge impression at the Leicestershire Schools County Athletics Championships on Saturday 13th June at Saffron Lane Athletics Stadium.
They were both chosen to represent South Leicestershire after having won their events in the Area Championships in May. At the Championships on Saturday they competed against the winners of the 8 other Leicestershire areas.
Molly competed in the Shot Putt and Gracie the Javelin. Both girls are completely new to their events and since April they have worked incredibly hard at progressing their skills and have dedicated lots of their own time. They now have their reward! To go on to win not only the area championships but to then achieve the gold medal and be the best U’13 girl in the whole of Leicestershire is a fantastic achievement.
On Saturday, Molly threw a personal best of 7.25m, to win by 45cm. Gracie threw a personal best of 20.06, to win by 2.59m.
Congratulations to both girls – everyone at Stoneygate are enormously proud !
Mrs S. Frisby
