Jamie Frickleton, head of Physical Education said, "Our students have once again been a credit to our Academy and our community. They have performed to their maximum throughout, and they were rewarded with some fantastic individual and team rewards. We have been unlucky runners-up in recent years to some much bigger schools and our students were determined to win this year. Standout performances came from Lillian Clopet in year 7, Abbi Oscroft in year 9, Jack Dutton in year 10 and Joel Kirby in year 11. But as it was a team event the performances of all our runners combined to give us the win."
Congratulations and well done to all the participants.
