They are Lancashire champions of netball!

The netball team of St Mary’s Primary School, Langho, is celebrating after netting the Lancashire Games Netball tournament, which was held in Blackpool.

A spokesman for the school said: “We played at Ribblesdale High school in the heats and won through to the finals at Blackpool, sponsored by SPAR. St Mary’s, Langho, played and won all five group games, the semi-final and then the final in searing heat! The final was very close, but the girls managed to come out the ultimate winners. We are now Lancashire champions for netball and St Mary’s are very proud of their netball team.”

The winning team celebrates. (s)
