Bugthorpe School took part in the annual Inter-School Sports Athletics meeting held at The Market Weighton School in early July.

The event was supported by 13 local primary schools and split into three groups depending on size.

Bugthorpe was in the small-schools group competing against four other schools - Barmby Moor, Newbald, St Mary’s in Market Weighton and Sutton upon Derwent.

Bugthorpe emerged as group champions after some stunning performances where both entrants to their races finished in first and second position - retaining the shield won last year.

Sprints, skipping, bean-bag (potato), shuttle-relays and 600m races were all competed for in different age-ranges.
