A HIGHTOWN girl was in the medals at the first Association of Junior Independent Schools Indoor Athletics Championships at Robin Park Arena, Wigan.
Lucy Woods, who goes to Merchant Taylors’ school in Crosby, won silver for her efforts in the balance event.
Schoolmate Emily Kumar won gold in the triple jump, while Yasmin Leece came third in the three-lap running event.
Twenty Merchants’ girls from Years 5 and 6 entered. The competition was strong with 22 other schools vying for medals.
PE teacher Chris Evans said: “This is the first time the competition has been held, so to have won medals in three disciplines is a fantastic achievement.
“It was a fun but highly contested event and our girls enjoyed the experience enormously.”
